Utilise the sun’s energy at night! Batteries are now economical for unique commercial and residential applications.
Tesla are at the forefront of storing and using energy, there are few more demanding applications than the automotive industry from rapid acceleration to regenerative braking and their very fast charging courtesy of the superchargers. They have developed this storage technology to partner with residential solar systems. This is the Powerwall which most people have heard of, we now have the second generation Powerwall 2.
The Powerwall 2 is a 13.5kWh lithium battery bank with an integrated inverter and partnered with a monitoring and control system (gateway). The Powerwall 2 is primarily designed for the self-consumption of surplus solar, it can also provide some backup functionality to single phase loads.
Tesla have developed an app to compliment the Powerwall and allow total visualisation of energy flow within the home including solar, grid, battery and load power.
The Powerwall 2 can be added to existing solar systems or partnered with a Continuum solar system for the ultimate home energy generation and management.
Continuum Solar are Tesla accredited integrators and can help you specify the ultimate storage solution for your home.
The lithium battery storage devices have been increasing in capacity and reliability with many technological advances from mass production reducing cost. As a result, battery solutions to store the sun’s power during the day and use the electrical storage for supplying electricity demands at night are economically feasible.
Battery Storage with solar power allows commercial and residential clients to become almost totally self-sufficient supplying their electrical needs during the day and night. It is highly recommended that if your business or home has an existing electrical supply from a distribution company, it is highly recommended that you stay connected when installing a solar power system with a battery storage device. This will ensure that you maintain a stable and reliable electrical power supply.
