Energy Storage Just Got Real with Tesla Powerwall
Tesla Powerwall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery designed to store energy at a residential level for backup power and self-consumption of solar power generation. Powerwall 2.0 can store up to 13.5 kWh of clean energy that with or without Solar can provide power to your home even when the grid is down. The unit mounts seamlessly on a wall and is integrated with the local grid to harness excess power and give customers the flexibility to draw energy from their own reserve.
The Tesla Powerwall is sized for day-to-day use at your home and is often paired with a solar panel system. When your solar panels produce more electricity than you can use in your home, you can store the excess electricity in the battery system instead of sending it back into the grid.
When the grid goes down, solar energy will continue to power your home and charge your Powerwall, with 2 power walls you can have up to 7+ days of continuous power during an outage.
Powerwall can detect an outage, disconnect from the grid, and automatically restore power to your home in a fraction of a second. You will not even notice that the power went out. Your lights and appliances will continue to run without interruption.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tesla Powerwall
How does the Tesla Powerwall work?
Do I have to get a Powerwall when I go solar?
Will I need more than one Tesla Powerwall?
consume and what things you want your Powerwalls to supply. Having more than one can be beneficial because it will supply you home with more energy in the event of a power outage. Tesla Powerwalls can run for 7+ days during an
outage. This number can increase or decrease depending your individual energy usage.
Can I choose how my energy is used?
can decide the Powerwalls certain charging and consumption functions. The 4
different options are Backup only, Self Powered, Balanced Time-Based Control,
and Cost-Saving Time-Based Control.
Home Solar System
The amount of electricity that a solar energy system will produce will depend on a number of factors, including the location of the home, system design, and much more. Ideally, a home with an unobstructed south-facing view will produce more than enough energy.
Installing battery backup along with your solar energy system for home or business is a smart move and can increase the value of your clean energy investment as well as peace of mind when a grid outage occur.

Anatomy of Tesla Powerwall
First, the experts at Renu Energy Solutions would be happy to talk to you about your solar energy storage options. You can set up a free virtual consultation online. In general, you’ll want to have a battery backup that has the right amount of capacity for you. This is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh). If you want additional capacity, you can include more than one battery in your system.
Also look at a battery’s depth of discharge (DoD). This tells you how much of your battery’s capacity you should be able to use. In general, a higher number is better. Then there is the battery backup’s round-trip efficiency. This is a calculation that looks at how much energy you can use as well as how much power it takes to store that energy. Again, in general, a higher number means a better value for you.
