Tesla home batteries

Are you thinking of going solar at home?

If you’re considering making the switch or are a recent convert, congratulations! You’re joining over 12 million American homes in the solar revolution.

In the past, energy storage has been a major obstacle for homeowners hoping to break free from their reliance on traditional power. But, those days are long gone. Innovations like the solar backup battery make it easy to capture energy from the sun’s rays and save it for later use. 

In this article, we’ll walk you through how the Tesla batter works, and help you decide if it’s right for your home. And, we’ll explain this innovative Powerwall in simple terms that you’re guaranteed to understand.

Keep reading for all the details. 

What Is a Solar Backup Battery?

Simply put, solar backup batteries capture and store electricity from your home’s solar panels.

Storing energy and saving it for a rainy day can help you save money by using stored energy when solar isn’t a good option, like during winter months. And, it can help you offset your power bill entirely if you have the option to sell electricity back to the grid where you live.

But, the biggest benefit of solar storage is peace of mind. 

The ability to save energy for future us reduces your reliance on utilities. This can be a major benefit during power outages, making your home more safe and self-reliant, even during a multi-day storm. 

What Makes the Tesla Battery Different?

Combining solar energy and the Tesla Powerwall will allow you to independently power your home both day and night.

This powerful solar battery can save over a week’s worth of power. This large capacity makes it ideal for homeowners seeking freedom from electric bills and self-sufficiency during blackouts and weather events. 

The Powerwall can detect a power outage, disconnect from the grid, and automatically restore your home’s power in seconds. In fact, you might not even notice that the power went out! Your lights, electronics, and appliances will continue running without interruption.

The Tesla app makes this system easy to monitor and control, giving you full access 24/7.

Is the Powerwall Right for Your Home?

Without a backup battery, your solar home could be left in the dark during a power outage. And, you could be losing money every month, being forced to rely on the city’s power grid any time the sun isn’t shining. 

The Powerwall stores more energy than most competing models. And, its sleek, sophisticated design and easy control application make it a top pick among homeowners.
