With Solar Panel & Tesla’s Powerwall in the home, You no longer need electricity subscription from the government?
In most tropical countries solar energy is seen as the flagship saviour of energy outage. But the problem is, there are no effective means to store the enormous energy tapped from the sun. In the recent times, Tesla has been in limelight for many innovative products. Tesla introduced Powerwall in late 2017, It didn’t fail to keep us amused either. Powerwall is seen as an efficient way to solve the power storage problem.
Powerwall can power a two-bedroom home for a full night. Compact, stackable and with a built-in DC to AC inverter, the new unit cost $5,500 (plus $1,000 for installation and supporting hardware), under-cutting rival battery suppliers. The included inverter is a new design by Tesla. Powerwall capacity is now 14 KWh and it starts shipping in December from Tesla’s new factory in Nevada. Power output is 7 kW peak, 5 kW continuous, weight is 264.4 lb, and dimensions are 44 x 29 x 5.5 inches.
Powerwall can detect an outage, disconnect from the grid, and automatically restore power to your home in a fraction of a second. You will not even notice that the power went out. Your lights and appliances will continue to run without interruption. If you have solar and Powerwall, then solar energy will continue to power your home and recharge Powerwall. Without Powerwall, solar will shut down during an outage.
In a recent update, Tesla is bringing Powerwall batteries to 50,000 homes in Australia. The company’s Powerwall batteries are set to provide the juice for a massive “virtual power plant” in the country that will provide electricity for up to 50,000 homes over the next four years, according to the Australian government.
