28 Jun Tesla Powerwall 2 is here Gold Coast
Our Energy conscious Gold Coast customer Graham, has been one of the first to have received the new Tesla Powerwall 2. Michael, our Solar Designer said of the installation “Due to a smaller, shaded roof area, we opted for Sun Power 327 watt panels with additional SolarEdge optimizers. The panels provided a higher wattage for a similar footprint to that of the lower watt panels. Tesla Powerwall 2 was then added to capture and store excess power produced by the solar panels during the day for use at night. The result is reduced energy costs and greater self-consumption of solar. The Powerwall mounted seamlessly on the wall inside the customer’s garage”.
The Powerwall was installed with a backup module which protects the home during a power outage, keeping lights, Wi-Fi and refrigerator running. In addition, a Gateway module was installed to allow for seamless monitoring of the system.
With an appetite for energy efficiency, we also installed one of the most energy-efficient air conditioners on the market with a seven-star energy rating.
We’re anticipating the savings to exceed projections with the solar PV system already producing up to 26kwh per day.
Powerwall consists of a 14 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system, an integrated inverter and software that intelligently dispatches electricity when it’s needed most. Powerwall is a sleek, wall-mounted battery system designed for residential or light commercial use and is rated for indoor or outdoor application. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack provides energy storage for solar self-consumption, load shifting, backup power or any high-throughput application. It is connected to the grid to export excess energy, maximizing your opportunity for economic benefit.
The Tesla app allows for full visibility and seamless real-time monitoring. The app allows you to manage your Powerwall and solar panels anywhere, anytime. Michael said “The app is user-friendly with full transparency on the solar production, Powerwall charge and discharge, electricity used and any import or exported power from the grid”.
With rapid developments making batteries more affordable, and energy prices set to soar again next month, we’re receiving a surge of interest in the Powerwall 2. We offer customized solar-plus-battery solutions that enable you to access the free, abundant power of the sun and reduce your reliance on the grid.
