Using the Tesla Powerwall, it is now possible to store the electricity that you generate through your solar panels. Better Energy Control are one of Scotland's first accredited installers of the Tesla Powerwall. This beautifully designed battery is a game-changer in storage technology because, unlike most lithium-ion batteries, it does not need to keep a minimum charge level. All 6.4kWhours of stored electricity is usable.
Tesla are leading the march in making energy storage a viable option for domestic and commercial properties. It can be retro-fitted onto any type of solar pv system. If you have an Economy 7 meter, the Tesla battery can even be optimised to charge up with the electricity from the Economy 7 meter during wintertime when solar generation is low.
While a Tesla battery will not quite bring you ‘off-grid’, it will bring you as close as feasibly possible. If you currently own a solar pv system then a Tesla battery could reduce your reliance on the grid to a bare minimum.
The Tesla Powerwall can be coupled to either the DC or AC side of the solar pv installation (depending on the installed inverter) and charges up from solar pv generated electricity. Whenever the solar pv system is generating and NOT being utilised elsewhere (i.e. exporting) the Tesla Powerwall will store the electricity. This will continue to store until the solar pv stops generating for the day.
As the household calls for electricity, the Tesla Powerwall will feed the stored electricity until completely drained for up to 6.8kWhours. This is comfortably enough for most households on any given evening. Watch the Tesla video to see what they have to say about it:
The average UK householder with solar pv is exporting 75% of their generated electricity. If you are someone who has solar pv but tend to be out of the house during daylight hours, then this is almost certainly you. This electricity can be stored and used, meaning that the electricity that you use in the evenings, nighttimes and early mornings is still solar generated electricity.
A Tesla Powerwall is a lifestyle choice for people who want to take control of their energy supply and reduce their reliance on the grid. If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, take control of your energy supply and be part of the solar storage revolution, then the Tesla Powerwall is for you.
