What does a Tesla Powerwall do?
Tesla Powerwall is a fully-integrated AC battery system for residential or light commercial use. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack provides energy storage for solar self-consumption, time-based control, and backup.
Tesla Powerwall provides seamless backup power, with or without solar. It is the optimal alternative to a gas or propane-powered generator that can be loud, malodorous and difficult to maintain. The Powerwall is a completely automated system that installs easily and requires no maintenance. Also, unlike a typical home generator, your Powerwall can detect grid outages and automatically become your home's main energy source. It will protect your home from the next power outage and keep your lights on, phones charged, and no puddles under the fridge.
With or without solar, we can design a back-up system to ensure at least 24 hours of power during a utility grid outage.
How would it work with my home’s solar system?
If you have solar and a Powerwall, then solar energy will continue to power your home and recharge the Powerwall. Without a Powerwall, the solar system will shut down during an outage. Contact Eagle Solar and Light and we can design a hybrid or micro-grid system with Powerwalls, solar and a back-up generator to power your home with clean energy on a typical day.
When powered by a solar system, the federal tax credit can apply to the Powerwall purchase as well.
Can the Powerwall save me money?
Some utilities have programs where using power during off-peak times can save you money. A Powerwall can assist you by charging during those off-peak times and avoiding those high peak rates. That way, you don’t have to disrupt your daily routine and worry about what time of day you are using your power. Contact us to understand how your utility rates work for your home and if Powerwall can help.
