Tesla Powerwall and Solar Power are the perfect combination for any home or business. Powerwall is a rechargeable home battery system that stores energy from solar or from the grid and makes it available on demand. It can power your home during the night, or back up your home in the event of a power outage. With its built-in battery inverter, Powerwall is compact and easy to integrate into your home.
How it Works
A Powerwall system consists of at least one Powerwall battery and a Backup Gateway. The Backup Gateway provides energy management, metering and monitoring functions for Powerwall. It controls connection to the grid, safely disconnecting your home and starting backup operation during an outage. The Backup Gateway also includes communication functions for up to 10 Powerwall units, and receives over-the-air updates for the system.
Components of Powerwall
A Powerwall installation includes at least one Powerwall battery, a Backup Gateway and standard electrical hardware such as circuit breaker panels, conduit, junction boxes, or electrical disconnects as required by your particular installation and local electrical codes. In some cases, conduit and other electrical hardware can be hidden within the wall for an additional cost.
Powerwall and Solar Power
Adding energy storage to your solar system is the best way to maximize your system’s value – allowing you to use solar power day and night. Integrate Powerwall with a new or existing solar system.
Powerwall is compatible with all inverter types. To ensure reliable operation during a power outage, we require at least one Powerwall for each 7.6 kW AC of solar in the backup circuit.
Powerwall and The Grid
When you install Powerwall without solar, it can charge from the grid to support Backup-only Mode.
When you install Powerwall with solar, it will not be able to charge from the grid. Though Powerwall can operate when the grid is down, you must connect Powerwall to the grid.
Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC)
Powerwall is designed to qualify for the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) when it is installed on an existing or new solar system and is charged 100% with solar energy. It does not qualify when installed without solar or if solar is installed after the Powerwall. You should always consult your tax professional for your situation.
