Use More of Your Solar
When your solar panels produce more electricity than you use, you can store the excess energy in the Tesla Powerwall instead of losing it and sending it back into the grid. You can then use your stored energy if your panels aren’t producing enough electricity to meet your home’s needs. During surge periods or at night, you can rely on the energy stored in your Powerwall instead of having to buy it from your utility company, therefore save money on your utility bills.
The Tesla Powerwall is modular, meaning you can comebine multiple Powerwalls to meet higher energy demands. You can add up to 10 Powerwall batteries together to maximize your energy storage system.
Higher Energy Density + Capacity
Power is measured in kilowatts (kW). Power determines the maximum amount of electricity that can be output at a single time. Usable capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). Usable capacity is a measure of the maximum amount of electricity stored in your battery on a full charge. The Tesla Powerwall boasts a continuous power rating of 5.0 kW to go along with 13.5 kWh of usable capacity.
How does this translate during a power outage? If you had two Powerwalls, you would have a power output of 10kW for 2.6 hours, assuming you had no other inputs. If you are also generating solar power from a PV system, that amount of time would increase.
Take Control with “Power Flow”
Using the Power Flow feature within the Tesla App, you will have real-time visibility into your home energy system. You will have real-time visibility into your home energy system. You can easily customize your Tesla Powerall operations by modifying your mode of operations.
Backup-Only Mode: saves all battery capacity for a utility outage
Self-Powered Mode: uses exess energy at night during surge periods. For a balance, you can set your Tesla Powerwall to use excess power during daily surge periods but fully recharge before suncet each day.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Go Off Grid?
The Powerwall is rates for up to 7 days of power storage dependent on a variety of factors. If you want to make sure you can maintain power to your property for days at a time, you’ll need to install several Powerwall batteries together to increase your storage capabilities.
Average cost per unit and how many units?
Powerwall and its associated components to $7,600 before installation. As a rough estimate, you can expect the Tesla Powerwall to cost between $9,600 and $15,600 for a full system installation
How long will my Powerwall last?
The Powerwall comes with a 10-year Tesla guarantees that the battery will maintain at least 70 percent of its capacity to hold a charge during that time period.
What type of battery is it?
A rechargeable lithium ion battery with liquid thermal control. Specifically, it is a lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) battery. This means higher energy density and increased safety.
