Although Tesla is widely known as the industry leader for electric vehicles, their advanced technology holds exciting possibilities for the renewable energy industry as well. Cobalt Power Systems Inc. is proud to be a Certified Installer of Tesla's innovative Powerwall energy storage system.
When paired with a well-designed solar power system, a Powerwall offers a wide range of benefits that give you both increased peace of mind, as well as potential increased savings with your utility.
The current units will store up to 13.5 kWh of usable electricity to use during an outage, which roughly translates to a few hours less than two days' worth of storage. This can vary depending on your electronics usage and can be recharged through solar power.
The most obvious advantage of a Tesla Powerwall is as a energy storage system. While a solar power system can often help you avoid the consequences of a utility outage, there are instances where backup power is necessary to keep your lights on. With a Tesla Powerwall system you can tie multiple batteries together for extended run time, or you can set up a side-by-side system to handle an increased energy load.
The amount of solar panels needed to charge a Tesla Powerwall system can vary. The weather conditions, cloud coverage, and other such factors can have an influence on the number of panels needed. For example, if your home or business experiences a lot of cloudy weather more panels may be needed to adequately charge the Tesla Powerwall. However, we recommend consulting with a San Francisco solar expert from Cobalt Power Systems Inc. to best determine if any additional panels are required.
When paired with solar panels, the Tesla Powerwall will charge throughout the day, as your panels generate more energy than the property is using during that time. By utilizing your solar panels and the Tesla Powerwall system together, you can keep your power running longer in a cost-effective, energy-efficient, and reliable way.
