SOLAR BATTERY BACKUP
Are You Worried About Another Power Outage?
Powerwall is a rechargeable home battery system that lets you store solar energy generated during the day and use it at night, which allows you to self-power your home and reduce your reliance on the utility grid.
Powerwall also protects your home from a power outage with seamless and reliable backup power. Through the Tesla mobile app, you will have full visibility and control over your self-powered home.

Lost Power During Hurricane Irma
The Tesla Powerwall provides power to your home in the event of a power outage. It’s clean, quick, quiet and convenient.
Solar battery backups are sized to meet your home’s specific needs, and are usually paired with a home solar panel system. The battery stores the excess energy produced by your solar panel system for later use.
If you have energy stored, then power outages don’t mean a thing! Your home battery will protect your home as a backup power generator. It is cleaner, quieter and will last longer than most home generators. Plus, with a seamless hook-up to the grid and to your circuit breaker, using power from your home battery requires no action on your part. It just happens.
Reduce Electric Bill
Save the electricity you generate, save on your electricity costs. With a solar battery backup, you can even send excess energy back into the power grid for credits.
Instead of using energy from the grid, your home will use the extra energy in your solar battery. This can lead to significant savings, depending on your utility company’s rates. Back up your home with a battery system and you’ll create self-sufficiency, and save the electricity you generate.
By storing the energy your home solar system produces, you become less dependent on the utility grid. Plus, you avoid relying on the utility company and its ever-increasing utility rates.
If your solar system overproduces, that energy is stored for later use. So, instead of pulling energy from the utility grid, you’re pulling clean, solar produced energy from your home battery.
How Solar Battery Backup Works
The battery stores the excess energy produced by your solar panel system for later use.
When your rooftop solar panels produce more electricity than you can use in your home, the excess is stored in the battery pack instead of being sent back into the electric grid. Later, when your panels aren’t producing enough electricity, you can use the electricity stored in your solar battery instead of having to buy it from your utility company. Normally, this process happens over the course of a day: when the sun is high in the sky and your solar panels are producing more electricity than you can use, the surplus energy is stored in your battery. As the sun goes down and your solar panel production decreases, you draw on the electricity that you stored during the sunniest part of the day. Essentially, home batteries help you balance out your electricity production and usage over the course of the day.
