Powerwall, the new Lithium-ion battery, is a battery that is valid for both domestic and business use and can even be used by the utilities.
The home version of the battery can be charged by energy produced from solar panels or from the grid taking advantage of low-tariff periods. The battery offers off-grid operation as well as security in the event of an outage. It is also automatic, compact and easy to install.
This storage medium allows peaks in solar energy to be harnessed even when these do not coincide with average consumption peaks in the home. This reduces carbon emissions and brings down the cost of energy.
Powerwall has a stylish design, is maintenance-free and this summer will be available in two models, 10 kWh and 7 kWh respectively and comes with a 10-year guarantee. There is an option to install a battery bank in the event of increased demand.
Due to its characteristics and reduced cost, Tesla’s new batteries could change the reality of electricity distribution and consumption.
From a business standpoint, it can reduce the peaks in maximum demand, changing energy consumption profiles and making use of available electricity markets. In addition to providing turnkey solutions for the utilities, it offers fully integrated systems with an extensive range of applications.
