With California’s new net energy metering (NEM) policy, battery storage is quickly becoming a necessity for solar owners, and having backup power can provide several additional benefits. Battery storage enables you to gain energy independence, so you don’t have to be so reliant on the unpredictable electrical grid and it protects you against power outages.
At Element Electric, we only install the most reliable brands for solar products, which is why we choose Tesla Powerwall for battery storage. With their revolutionary design, these battery storage systems are some of the best available on the market today—keep reading to learn why.
How the Tesla Powerwall Works
Tesla Powerwall allows you to store the excess electricity that your solar panels generate throughout the day. You can use this energy at times when your solar system isn’t producing electricity, like at night and on cloudy days.
Tesla’s signature sleek design pairs with a high-performance 13.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, making these battery storage systems a great addition to any solar array. Some of the features of the Tesla Powerwall include:
- Easy monitoring and optimization with the Tesla app
- Automatic power outage detection
- Can be used on or off-grid
- Compatible with most solar systems
- Water and dust resistant
- 10-year warranty
- Stackable up to 10 units to meet your storage needs
Why You Should Install a Tesla Solar Battery System
Tesla solar battery systems are a great addition to any solar array, allowing you to get the most out of your energy production.
If your home is connected to the grid, your solar panels will automatically disconnect in the event of a power outage. This is to keep the frontline workers safe from a power surge as they’re repairing power lines. With Tesla Powerwall battery storage, you can seamlessly switch from the grid to using your stored electricity in seconds. Its large capacity can keep your power running for long outages.
24/7 Solar Power
Solar battery storage gives you access to the electricity your solar panels generate anytime. Not only does this mean that you can use clean, renewable energy at night or on cloudy days, but it also gives you more energy independence so you don’t need to rely on the grid. The Tesla Powerwall will also automatically attempt to recharge from your solar panels during daylight hours, so you don’t have to think about it.
Earn More With NEM 3.0
Utility companies will pay more for electricity during peak usage times under the new net metering policies. With a battery storage system, you can decide if you want to use your excess electricity yourself or send it to the grid when it’s in high demand at a higher rate. With the Tesla Powerwall, either can be done with a simple toggle on the app.
Tesla Solar Battery Storage Is Eligible For Incentives
As part of the Inflation Reduction Act, solar battery storage systems like the Tesla Powerwall qualify for a federal tax credit. This generous incentive allows you to reduce your federal tax liability by 30% of the total cost for your solar or solar plus battery system—with no maximum limit. The cost of the Tesla Powerwall is more expensive than other brands due to its unique design and high-quality performance, but the federal tax credit can make your installation much more affordable.
