As a certified installer of Tesla Powerwall, CAM Solar can help you harness the benefits of solar energy, even when the sun has dropped below the horizon or the power goes out! Tesla Powerwall is a solar battery backup system that provides many benefits for homeowners and business owners looking to further increase their use of renewable solar energy and energy savings and reduce their reliance on the grid and fossil fuels.
The Benefits of Solar Panel Battery Storage Systems
A solar battery stores solar energy during the day for use at night or during a power outage. Many homeowners looking into solar energy are surprised to learn that a standard grid-tied solar PV (photovoltaic) array will not continue to generate electricity during a power outage. This is due to a safety mechanism that requires all grid-tied solar electric systems to be shut off when a power outage is detected, to protect any powerline workers that are attempting to get the power back on.
24/7 Power Even When the Power Goes Out
When you combine your solar panels and solar inverter with a properly designed Tesla Powerwall battery backup system, you are able to have full control of your energy security. With Tesla Powerwall you can reduce your reliance on the grid and you can keep the lights on even during a blackout!
A Self-Powered Home & Time-Based Control
For most homes, a custom-designed and installed solar PV system will actually generate more electricity than can be used during the peak sunlight hours. So what happens with all of the extra electricity?
For those without a solar energy storage system, any excess electricity is funneled back into the grid, where it is usedin other homes and businesses in exchange for a credit on their electricity bill (this is called net metering).
However, battery storage allows homeowners to keep all of their free, clean electricity for use overnight, 24 hours a day. Also, if your utility charges peak pricing, a Tesla Powerwall can help you avoid these peak charging periods with its Time-Based Control to maximize your energy savings.
What Makes Tesla Powerwall Unique?
Powerwall can be mounted seamlessly on a wall or on the ground, indoors or outdoors. Each Tesla Powerwall consists of a lithium-ion battery pack (14 kWh), a liquid thermal control system, an integrated inverter, and carefully designed software that dispatches electricity when it’s needed most.
However, what makes Tesla Powerwall different is that it is connected to the grid to export any excess energy after the battery has been fully charged. This provides homeowners the benefits of dependable electricity in an outage, while also providing the financial benefits of net metering.
Wondering how long Tesla batteries last? Each Tesla Powerwall comes with a 10 year warranty at 70% capacity.
