What is the Powerwall 2?
Tesla’s Powerwall 2 is a complete lithium battery storage system with its own built-in inverter and the ability to hold up to 13.5kWh of energy. It is designed to be charged mainly with solar panels, but it can also charge from the grid in order to let system owners take advantage of tariff arbitrage on time-of-use billing which is perfect for Tasmania’s Tariff 93.
It has higher instantaneous power output ratings than the original, at 5 kilowatts (kW) continuous and 7kW peak – meaning that it will be able to meet keep up with the energy demand of most Australian homes. Like its predecessor, it is sleek and narrow (albeit a bit larger all around) and comes with a 10 year warranty.
It can be installed in an off-grid or grid-connected solar system, where it can provide backup power to essential loads in the case of a grid failure. Up to 9x of these Powerwalls can be strung together for a total of 121.5kWh of capacity.
Tesla Powerwall 2.0 will be available in Australia in February 2017 and you can reserve yours now with I Want Energy!
