Introducing Tesla Powerwall 2Stuart Reid
As a Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer, we at RED Electrical are excited to announce the launch of the second generation Powerwall.
Powerwall 2 stores double the amount of solar energy to power your home day and night.
With Powerwall you can store solar energy generated during the day for use any time. During the day, the sun shines on your solar panels, charging your battery. At night, your home draws electricity from your battery, powering your home with clean, sustainable energy 24/7.
Installing Powerwall with RED Electrical is easy. We take care of everything from system design, permitting, right through to installation.
Powerwall consists of a 14 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system, an integrated inverter and software that intelligently dispatches electricity when it’s needed most. The unit mounts seamlessly on a wall or on the ground, indoors or outdoors.
Powerwall 2 is available from Febrary 2017.
Powerwall can provide a number of benefits
Increasing self-consumption of solar power generation –Powerwall can store surplus solar energy during daylight hours and use that energy later when the sun is not shining.
Load shifting – Powerwall can charge during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharge during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher.
Back-up power – Assures power in the event of a grid outage.
