All our solar panel systems are ‘battery-ready’ so compatibility is not an issue.
Adding a battery is more dependent on solar system size, compared to your day time usage. Whether you have enough excess solar power to fully charge a battery
Check your energy bill for the daily export figure (the power not being consumed by your home) to see what capacity you have to charge a battery.
A Tesla home battery needs 13.5kwh each day to be fully charged.
When we are designing solar panel systems to include power storage we are looking at supplying the full 24 hr load not just the day time load. So this is a bigger system that factors in both summer and winter solar production levels.
Battery technology is very sophisticated and the battery is designed to be fully discharged every day. With a solar battery system you can actually see the flow of energy in real time and manage any settings remotely.
Tesla Powerwall 2
Tesla Powerwall is revolutionising home solar power systems, enabling more families to use renewable energy to power their day to day lives. The result is greater self-consumption of solar generation and reduced energy costs.
- Provide a back up power supply for your home or business during a black out.
- Includes an integrated battery management system saving on installation costs and enabling compatibility with virtually any existing solar power system
- Large battery with 13.5kWh of useable power
- Multiple storage systems can be combined
Powerwall 2 is compatible with almost all existing systems
