Essentially Tesla’s Powerwall 2 is a home solar battery system that will store the solar energy that you convert through-out the day into an energy resource that you can use whenever you need it. When you have a solar battery you can get more from the solar system you have installed, and reduce your dependency on the electricity grid.
Tesla’s solar battery gives owners a chance to retain the solar energy that they are producing from their system. You can then store this energy to use for a time in need. Something that is great about the design of Tesla’s Powerwall 2 is that it makes a good fit to any garage or home. It is a sleek design being thin and easy on the eye.

Tesla’s powerwall is a solar battery, and it gives you a chance to keep the power that you are producing from your solar system rather than selling it to power companies and buying it back at a higher price. So this means that the solar that you generate throughout the day will be stored in your solar battery and then used at a later date. Also it will also prevent a power shortage at your home during a blackout meaning you can stay safe and keep your home running. It is predicted that more than 1 million Australian homes will install a solar battery over the next 5 years.
This new version of the powerwall can be installed with any solar power system via AC-Coupling. The AC Powerwall 2 communicates with the Tesla Gateway (meter) to determine when to charge (if there’s excess solar generation) and when to discharge (when the home’s energy consumption exceeds what is being produced by the solar system).
Tesla will update your firmware regularly to keep your powerwall running at optimum through remote technology and software updates. You won’t need to worry about any maintenance side of things.
Yes, when your Tesla powerwall 2 is fully charged and if your solar system is producing more power than your home is consuming then the excess power will be sold to the grid.
Absolutely, Tesla’s solar battery can be set up to provide back up power given that there is a blackout or power shortage in your area.
You can monitor your Powerwall remotely using your mobile device and the app that Telstra have provided. You can see in great detail how much power your system is generating and how much energy you have stored.
