Tesla Powerwall Battery

MODE is your Tasmanian Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer. We take care of everything from system design to installation.


Powerwall consists of a 13.5kWh lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system, an integrated inverter and software that intelligently dispatches electricity when it’s needed most.

The unit mounts seamlessly on a wall or on the ground, indoors or outdoors, and is connected to the grid to export excess energy.

Benefits include:

  • Increasing self-consumption of solar power generation: Powerwall can store surplus solar energy during daylight hours and use that energy later when the sun is not shining.
  • Load shifting: Powerwall can charge during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharge during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher.
  • Back-up power option: Assures power in the event of a grid outage.

Tesla Backup Gateway

Backup Gateway automatically detects grid outages and provides seamless transition to backup power.

Backup Gateway communicates directly with Powerwall to control connection to the grid, providing energy management and monitoring from any mobile device with the Tesla app (see below).

You will be able to draw energy from both your solar and Powerwall.

Gateway 2

Backup Gateway looks like a miniature Powerwall, and needs to be installed near your exiting switchboard. Powerwall can be located away from the switchboard if required.
