Innovation in battery technology has come a long way in providing efficient storage solutions for domestic and commercial properties as part of an integrated PV system. The ability to store power generated throughout the day for use in peak demand periods is crucial in decreasing reliance on the grid and protecting against power outages.
The market has become flooded with different kinds of battery solutions, so how do you know which one is best for you? Let us tell you.
The energy revolution is here, Hero Renewables are proud to bring you the Powerwall by Tesla Energy, available for installation now.
Tesla’s Powerwall is a DC coupled, rechargeable, lithium-ion battery storage solution. The battery is designed as a 7kW solution which after round trip efficiency losses will provide 6.4kW of usable energy. It has been aesthetically designed with flexibility in mind and can be installed internally or externally allowing freedom to the end consumer.
Tesla have granted the Powerwall a 10 year manufacturers warranty which means in the unlikely scenario anything goes wrong, Hero Renewables will supply and install a brand new replacement unit at no cost to you.
Coming to the United Kingdom in February 2017, the Powerwall 2 is available for pre-order right now.
The Powerwall 2 boasts double the capacity of the original model, despite weighing only 20kg’s more and retaining it’s slim (but slightly more square) design. The new design does also mean it can be ground mounted as opposed to an internal or external wall.
It also features an integrated inverter which lowers the cost and complexity of new installations.
