We are delighted to announce that we have achieved certified installer status for the Tesla Energy Powerwall. The Tesla Powerwall battery is an innovative piece of technology that has been designed specifically for use in residential properties. The powerwall is a state of the art battery which ischarged using the electricity generated from solar PV panels and can then be used to power your home during evenings or power outages.
Why Install a Tesla Power Wall
During the daytime your solar panels can produce more electricity than your home needs. The Tesla Powerwall stores this excess electricity and makes it available for consumption in the evening when the panels are producing less, helping to cover the gap between peak solar production and peak electricity demand meaning you can use the electricity you produce when you want to. Not only does this reduce your electricity costs but ensures that you are directly using more of the energy your personal system has generated.
The Powerwall’s lithium ion battery has been developed from the proven track record of Tesla’s automotive battery technology meaning your home will be powered safely and economically. As the battery comes enclosed in a singular box it is easy to install and requires little maintenance. The box itself is compact and stylish and can be easily incorporated into your home without being intrusive.
The unit is waterproofallowing for installation eitherinternally or externally. It has also been designed to allow for either floor-mounting or the standard wall-mounting which mean the unit can be installed in a variety of locations to suit individual properties.
Continued software updates mean that homeowners can now charge the battery directly from the grid. When on a variable electricity tariff this can allow further savings by topping up the battery during off-peak times to combine with the excess solar generated electricity and cover the peak daytime hours. The Tesla app allows for homeowners to easily check and the battery charge and adjust system settings as required.
Tesla Energy Plan
To help maximise on savings Tesla have teamed up with Octopus Energy to create the new Tesla Energy Plan – a new low-cost energy tariff designed to help you, the grid and the environment.
With tariffs as low as £0.11kWh if you have Solar Panels and a Power Wall – or even lower, £0.08kWh if you also have a Tesla vehicle and charger unit.
Tesla manages your powerwall and helps support the energy needs and stability of the electricity grid while providing you with ongoing savings by giving you the most competitive rate in the market.
