Is Tesla Powerwall Worth the Cost? 

Tesla Powerwall is one of the most advanced solar battery systems on the market today. It’s more expensive than other types of solar batteries, but given its superior capabilities, we believe it’s worth the cost. 

Element Electric has been installing residential solar panels and battery storage systems in California for years. We’ve tested many types of solar batteries and have found the Tesla Powerwall to be the best option for California homes. It offers better performance, capacity, and longevity than other types of solar batteries, and it qualifies for the 30% solar tax credit.

How Much Does a Tesla Powerwall Cost? 

Tesla Powerwall prices start at $8,400 for one unit, without factoring in taxes or installation costs. The exact purchase price will depend on how many units you purchase and who you choose to install them. 

Tesla Powerwall solar batteries are stackable, which means you can easily expand your system by installing multiple units. The more Powerwalls you stack together, the more electricity you’ll be able to store. Of course, the total cost will increase with every additional unit, but the cost per unit actually decreases with every additional unit. So, the more storage you install, the more you end up saving. 

Element Electric specializes in solar battery storage system design and installation. With us as your solar battery installer, you won’t have to worry about figuring out how many Powerwalls you need to run your home. We’ll analyze your home’s energy usage and calculate how much backup power you need to keep your essentials running during an outage.

What Are the Benefits of a Tesla Powerwall?

Tesla Powerwall solar batteries have many advantages over other types of solar batteries that make them worth the higher cost. 

Impressive Storage Capacity 

A single Powerwall has a storage capacity of 13.5 kWh. Compare that to Enphase’s battery capacity of 10.08 kWh and Generac’s battery capacity of just 9.0 kWh and you’ll start to see why the Powerwall is a better value. 

Long Lifespan 

Tesla batteries are highly durable and last a long time. They’re backed by a 10-year warranty and can last much longer than that. 

Sleek Design 

Tesla products are known for their sleek design and the Tesla Powerwall is no exception. Tesla solar batteries are compact with no exposed wiring or hot vents. They can be floor-mounted or wall-mounted and can be installed indoors or outdoors. 

Easy Monitoring 

With the Tesla app, you can easily monitor your battery from your smartphone and optimize it based on your current preferences.
