Tesla Powerwall for home is a popular solar storage solution worldwide. Powerwall’s reliability, performance, and aesthetics have played a major role in its status in the market. Powerwall has enhanced features and is also compatible with existing solar panels. In this article, we review some of the important features of Powerwall, and how it enhances the savings of a residential solar power system.
Powerwall is an aesthetically designed floor/wall mountable AC coupled battery storage with 13.5Kwh total capacity with 100% depth of charge. Multiple Powerwalls can be linked together (up to 10 units) to increase the total capacity if required. This provides a certain level of flexibility for future up-gradation. With a 90% roundtrip efficiency, (in simple terms, 90% roundtrip efficiency means 10% of the energy the battery consumes by itself), and a 10-year warranty, they ensure a good return on investment and energy savings. They can operate anywhere in temperatures ranging from -20 to 50 degrees Celcius, which allows them to be suitable for most outdoor applications as well.
Real-time monitoring, consistent firmware & gateway updates, and a well-designed mobile app allow the owners to acquire sufficient data about their system. Tesla Powerwall for home has three working modes for providing maximum savings:
– Self-Powered: stores excess energy during the daytime, and use it during the night with less focus on the battery back-up during power outages.
– Back-up: as the name suggests, the focus is on the backup solutions during extended utility outages.
– Advanced Time-based Control Mode: Optimal for variable electricity pricings to get maximum savings
The system operates with minimal noise and comes with a built-in liquid cooling solution, which enables it to work in the aforementioned temperature range. For more information, contact us here.
