As a Tesla Energy Certified Installer, Hero Renewables have the experience and knowledge to supply and install Tesla Energy’s Powerwall Battery systems for your home and business to meet your constant energy requirements.
What Is Battery Storage?
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.
Why Choose The Tesla Powerwall?
The Powerwall system is automated, compact and simple to install, enabling you to exploit your consumption of your solar power and energy generation.
The Tesla Battery stores electricity that is produced and generated by solar panels during the daytime and makes it accessible to your home in the evening when energy consumption levels are elevated.
Battery power is able to provide a link between high solar production and peak demand, allowing you to use your solar panel system more effectively and efficiently, reducing your energy and electricity costs at home and during the early mornings, late afternoons and evenings in the workplace.
Powerwall 2 boasts double the capacity of the original model, despite weighing only 20kg’s more and retaining its slim (but slightly squarer) 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.
One of the major advantages of a battery storage system is having access to electricity in the event of a power cut. Recently Telsa released the Backup Gateway 2 energy manager, which completely islands the house in the event of a power cut. Meaning that it can provide single-phase power up to 5kW, which is plenty to cover most electrical loads in residential properties.
Battery System Type
At Hero Renewables, the two battery products that we offer are both AC-couples, which these systems are connected at the property’s distribution board so any energy feeding into the battery goes through the solar inverter before going into the battery. Meaning that any energy generated by the solar PV then stored in the battery and used in the property is converted from DC to AC through the solar inverter, back to DC to be stored in the battery and finally back to AC to be used within the property.

I found their knowledge and advise to be very helpful — Mr Till | Oxford ( YouGen Review )Hero Renewables first contacted at Newbury show in 2016 where I found their knowledge and advise to be very helpful for me in getting more from my existing Solar installation. It was no surprise then that I eventually placed my Order for their upgrade recommendation and installed additional Solar Panels and Solar-edge Inverters, this done very professionally and is still working great. I additionally also had battery storage added in the form of a Tesla Powerall 2 and can now benefit from using this in the evenings to keep my electricity costs low
Strong after-care — Mr Dawson | Ormskirk ( YouGen Review )Excellent product, good communication and strong after-care. Would use again, as and when.
The installation went very afficiently and the crew very helpful. — Mr Sharp | Sussex ( YouGen Review )I already had Solar Panels when I saw an advert from Hero Renewables for Unused Solar Energy stored by a Battery, This is just what i needed so I replied to the advert and found the company to be very helpfull and informative. I received a quotation and decided to go ahead. The installation went very afficiently and the crew very helpful. The new Battery was liked to my existing Solar Panel System. This has proved very benifitial in storing and my uasage of what would have been wasted energy.
We are very happy with the system installed — Mrs Clarke | Tywyn, Wales ( YouGen Review )We encountered Hero Renewables at the National Homebuilding and Renovating Show at the NEC in Birmingham where they were the only company exhibiting the Tesla storage battery. Their customer service was very good indeed. Tom Mastin spent a considerable amount of time and effort explaining the system and his talk was followed up by a site visit to agree where the various components could be placed to ensure the best and most convenient results from the system. In terms of value for money, we had some idea of the cost of a PV system without the Tesla battery storage having already had a quote some time ago from a local company and found the quote from Hero to be competitive.We are very happy with the system installed and, with some guidance from Hero, have learnt how to use the system to get best results.
personable and knowledgeable — Mrs Springett | Berkshire ( YouGen Review )The two lads that installed the system were personable and knowledgeable, they certainly put up with all my questions with a smile. While connecting up my battery to my panels they were happy to have a look at a problem I had with the panels (another company had installed them) and solved it, giving me 25% more power! Again, unlike my panel installer they are keen to support the solaredge monitoring website for my installation and handle any alerts raised.
Overall I'am impressed with the system — Mr Ammon | Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire ( Google Review )I had my solar panels and Tesla battery storage fitted in 2017, initially the inverter was not working , it took a while for a replacement to be installed , when the system started working I Used the App to monitor the output. The system has been working now for two and a half years(April-2020) , no maintenance required , the 5KW system generates 45KWH + per day-from April to September, and performance declines over the winter , most days the system feeds power into the battery which can be used after work, there are only a few days a year ,when the weather is dull and overcast and no power is generated. Overall I am impressed with the system and glad I invested the money in an environmentally friendly way .
customer service was very good — Mr McClennon | Llandinam ( YouGen Review )I chose the installer as they were Tesla-approved, which I felt made them stand out. Their customer service was very good and so far I've found the PV great value, working exactly as intended.
Excellent service — Mr Springfield | Wraysbury ( Google Review )Supplied and installed my powerwall. Excellent service. It has been working faultlessly for many months now
