Tesla Powerwall

About the Entry

Powerwall is a home battery that charges using electricity generated from solar panels, or when utility rates are low, and powers your home in the evening.

Automated, compact and simple to install, Powerwall enables you to maximize self-consumption of solar power generation.

Features & Benefits

01

Product Design

Current generation home batteries are bulky, expensive to install and expensive to maintain.

In contrast, Powerwall’s lithium ion battery inherits Tesla’s proven automotive battery technology to power your home safely and economically.

Completely automated, it installs easily and requires no maintenance.

Function

A typical Powerwall system includes solar panels, an inverter for converting electricity between direct current and alternating current, a meter for measuring battery charge, and in backup applications, a secondary circuit that powers key appliances.

Which components are required depends on how you use your home battery.

Safety

Tesla Powerwall architecture has been built from the ground up to deliver multiple levels of protection.

In addition, a highly sophisticated Battery Management System and liquid thermal control system ensures the batteries will always function in a safe manner.

Powerwall is tested and certified to local market safety standards.

Sustainability

The Tesla Powerwall was developed and designed with Tesla’s mission in mind – to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.

Combine solar panels and one or more Powerwall home batteries to power your home independently from the utility grid.

A net zero energy rating means that your home produces as much energy as it consumes, but is still connected to the utility grid for periods of high demand.

Quality

The Tesla Powerwall is built out of the state of the art Gigafactory in Nevada and is quality checked during production.

The Powerwall warranty is 10 years and it is estimated that 60% capacity will remain after this time.

The state of the art liquid cooling system allows for great performance in nearly all temperatures.

Key Sustainability Design Features and Benefits

The Tesla Powerwall will be produced in the Gigafactory, where a high percentage of battery recycling will occur.

The Gigafactory itself will be a carbon neutral factory, and one of the largest production factories in the world, setting a standard.
