Update: Renu Energy Solutions does not, at present, have access to the Tesla Powerwall. This may change later in 2017, however we cannot provide assurance to that effect. For one great energy storage option that you can get now, see this recent Renu Energy Solutions media release about our first installation, and the first in the Carolinas, of a sonnenBatterie.
Tesla Powerwall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery designed to store energy at a residential level for load shifting, backup power and self-consumption of solar power generation. Powerwall consists of Tesla’s lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system and software that receives dispatch commands from a solar inverter. 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 battery can provide a number of different beneﬁts to the customer including:
- Load shifting – The battery can provide ﬁnancial savings to its owner by charging during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharging during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher
- Increasing self-consumption of solar power generation – The battery can store surplus solar energy not used at the time it is generated and use that energy later when the sun is not shining
- Back-up power – Assures power in the event of an outage
Powerwall increases the capacity for a household’s solar consumption, while also offering backup functionality during grid outages.
Energy storage pairs perfectly with solar: the Powerwall or sonnenBatterie system are compatible with previously installed Renu Energy Solutions Solar Electric systems. A battery backup system allows you to use the power you generate 24 hours a day, without dependence on the utility to “store” your energy.
