Tesla Powerwall now available fit to existing solar systems or have complete battery storage with solar power and solar batteries installed today
Tesla Brisbane will change the way we all view our energy use and needs, Tesla has developed a battery storage system that will ultimately remove the need to be grid connected or at very least make the grid the back up as opposed to traditional battery storage systems being viewed as the stand by backup system.
The Tesla Powerwall can produce 200watts of power at one time this is significantly less than some other lithium Battery systems in the market. Tesla battery is exactly that, it’s a lithium battery which still needs a charger, inverter, fusses and isolations switches which all sit outside the Tesla Powerwall unit being offered. Tesla battery will see system prices reduce as the need to compete with its offered price points but in saying that the Tesla battery once all added components are added will be close or possibly more costly than the current lithium battery systems now in the market.
We at off grid power solutions supply to demand, we have all battery storage and solar battery solutions and Tesla battery and Tesla Power Wall is one of them, don’t hesitate to ask us about any product in the market including Tesla battery and Tesla Power Wall.
Understanding solar and batteries
OUR PARTNER COMPANY, ENERGY WISE GROUP IS AUTHORIZED RESELLER AND INSTALLER
Powerwall and other well designed off grid solar systems enables you to maximize self-consumption and utilize the renewable energy when available. The priority can be set to time of battery energy use so you are assured of power from your Tesla battery when needed avoiding new time of use charges.
The average home uses more electricity in the morning and evening than during the day when solar energy is plentiful. Without a home battery, excess solar energy is often sold to the power company and purchased back in the evening. This mismatch adds demand on power plants and increases carbon emissions. Powerwall bridges this gap between renewable energy supply and demand by making your home’s solar energy available to you when you need it
While we see the philosophy behind this currently in most states there is no peak and off peak rates associated with one meter generally we have 2 meters for this purpose. It’s not allowable to connect your main home use to the off peak meter, we use our off the grid or grid connect battery storage units differently, while Tesla are trying to develop a system with what we call time of use our off grid power systems use self generated energy when available, we also have time of use settings but as a rule if we have solar energy or stored energy no matter what time of day or night we use our own energy. So if your load is 2000 watts and the solar is producing 1000W the remaining 1000 watts needed comes from your battery zero from the grid. There is no point in having available stored energy if you are not going to use it specially if your night rate is the same as the daily energy rates.
