The Powerwall Tesla Home Battery
The Powerwall may be used to increase the amount of solar energy a home directly consumes. This function commonly involves charging the battery during times when solar production exceeds local load, and discharging the battery when local loads exceed solar production.
“Powerwall’s lithium ion battery inherits Tesla’s proven automotive battery technology. Installed alongside a Solaredge inverter, which offers DC to DC optimisation and intuitive consumption monitoring system, homeowners can maximize self-use of solar energy whilst minimizing spend electricity bills”. – Dave Houston, MD of Genfit
