What is the Tesla Powerwall?
The Tesla Powerwall is essentially a rechargeable lithium-ion battery for your home. It stores the energy collected by your solar cells, and can, in the event of an outage, continuously power your home for up to a week.
How Much Does Tesla Powerwall Cost?
The cost of a Tesla Powerwall varies depending on several factors such as your existing electrical/solar setup, preferred back-up configuration, and any additional associated hardware.
There are ways however to make the Tesla Powerwall more affordable. When the Powerwall is charged with solar, it is eligible for the same federal tax credit as solar, currently 26%. It also qualifies for financing options. Compared to a whole house generator, the Powerwall is similar in cost, more efficient, quieter, and more discreet. At Yes Solar, we think of the Powerwall as Energy Insurance rather than a product. The cost per month is comparable to paying one of your monthly bills.
How Tesla Powerwall Works
- When solar panels generate DC (direct current) power, that power travels to an inverter, where it is turned into AC (alternating current) power, which flows into your main panel and powers your home.
- Your home uses what it needs, and the rest flows to the Tesla Powerwall—where it’s changed back to DC power and stored by the 14kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
- A liquid thermal control system regulates the temperature inside the battery. The integrated inverter and software then swap the stored DC to AC and dispatch power when it’s needed.
- Any excess power present after the battery is charged then goes out to the grid, where, if you’re on a net metering program, you receive your credits.
Other benefits of the Tesla Powerwall
- Stores solar power generated during the day to be used at night or any time your panels aren’t generating power
- Powerwall can be programmed to charge (from the grid) during lower rate periods. It will then distribute the stored power during more expensive rate periods.
- The Powerwall is a great backup power solution, making it the ideal replacement for a generator
- Can be used to charge your electric vehicle.
- Reduces your carbon footprint by using renewable energy.
- Powerwall can be used off-grid or with grid-tied systems
- Tesla Powerwalls can be stacked. You’ll have the ability to connect up to 10 Powerwalls together.
