Get Peace of Mind with a Tesla Powerwall!

Blackouts. Fires. Rising utility costs. The threats to powering your home—and maintaining your day-to-day routine—can feel overwhelming these days. Rest assured you and your family will have all the electricity you need by installing a Tesla Powerwall. Of course, you probably have some questions about the equipment and how it works. Here are some straightforward answers: 

What Are the Benefits of Installing a Tesla Battery?

There are many benefits to supporting your solar system with a backup battery. The first, and probably the most obvious, benefit is having power during a blackout. When there’s an emergency, all of your appliances and communication devices will work. This means you won’t have to worry about having a generator or getting fuel. Additionally, backup batteries will save you some significant cash by offsetting peak usage rates, protecting you from electricity rate increases, and giving you a federal tax credit.

How Does the Tesla Battery Work?

Battery storage makes sure your solar system will be able to operate and continue to provide clean power when the power goes out. The battery also boosts your home’s efficiency by storing excess solar power for you to use in the evening once the sun goes down. As a result, you’ll decrease your carbon footprint by drawing less power from the grid and producing less greenhouse gas emissions.

How Long Will the Backup Battery Last?

Each Powerwall can hold up to 13.5 kWh of energy. To put that into context, a central 3-ton AC unit running for constantly 3 hours will use 9 kWh. Of course, a well-designed cooling system will not run for three hours straight—it turns off and on intermittently to maintain the desired temperature. Depending on your home’s typical energy usage, multiple Powerwall’s may provide beneficial coverage during outages.
