Tesla Powerwall Battery

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: surplus solar energy during daylight hours is stored for later use 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 2

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.


Tesla App

The Tesla app for iPhone or Android enables you to remotely monitor and control Powerwall.

It can be downloaded to your smart phone or tablet.

Tesla App

After downloading and installing the application, use your Tesla account email address and password to connect your Powerwall.

For further information see the Tesla App page.
