The Powerwall 2 Home Battery from Tesla
With the Powerwall 2, Tesla just made a fully solar powered home a reality. By connecting the Powerwall 2 battery to the existing photovoltaic solar panels of a home, the entire home power station is made much more efficient. With this efficient set up you’ll be able to save thousands of your hard earned money on your electric bill every single year. Release yourself from the grip of the electric grid and get yourself a Powerwall 2 home battery today.
Tesla has certified SuperGreen Solutions for installation of their technology. They have trained us well and because of this we now adhere to their high standards for proper installation. Because of this certification, our green energy systems now incorporate the highly efficient Powerwall 2 home battery that lets you harness the unlimited power of the sun right at home.
By calling us for a Powerwall 2 installation, you are taking a big leap towards becoming fully independent from the electric power grid. After the installation, your home solar power station will now be able to generate electricity during the day time with your PV solar panels and store a large amount of it in the Powerwall 2. This stored electricity will then become your home’s main source of power at peak demand hours at night. This allows your home to be fully solar powered, day and night.
By getting SuperGreen Solutions for the installation job, you are ensuring that everything will be done smoothly. You barely have to make any decision with our experts around, since we do everything from the quote to the Ergon Application. If you’re eyeing a bigger project with Powerwall 2, then we can also assist with obtaining permits, designing the systems and maybe even financing.
The Tesla Powerwall 2 employs a 13.5 kWh lithium-ion battery that’s kept cool by an advanced liquid cooling system. It also has an inverter that’s already integrated, so you don’t need an external inverter just to connect it to a PV solar panel system with DC electric current as output. It is designed to be rugged enough to be mounted outdoors but its design is also elegant enough to become part of your home’s interior decor. The mounting location depends entirely on the preference of the client. It can also easily connect to the grid to easily feed in excess electric power produced to the electric power company’s grid for equivalent rebates or credits.
Benefits of Having a Powerwall 2
- Allows the solar powered home to store most, if not all of the solar power energy produced during the day. This stored energy in the Powerwall 2 can then be used to power the home at night, when there is no sun.
- Load Shifting – Since electricity is priced more expensively during the night, the Powerwall 2 becomes a very convenient partner when it comes to saving money. At night, you never have to rely on expensive grid electricity ever again. Just utilize the power you generated during the day.
- Back Up Power – The Powerwall 2 can be used as a backup source of energy when there is no power.

If you’re curious about the Tesla Powerwall 2, then read on and learn about this state of the art home battery storage through the FAQs below.
#1:When was the Tesla Powerwall 2 Home Battery made available?
In Australia, the Tesla Powerwall 2 was made available in April 2017, a month after its launch in March. The original Powerwall was released more than a year before that.
#2:What are the benefits that I can expect with my home connected to the Tesla Powerwall 2?
You’ll get more energy capacity. It actually more than double the capacity of the initial model. It is stackable for easy scalability. And, it has an integrated inverter for easy connectivity with all existing PV solar panel systems. It’s very robust and can be installed outside. The design is beautiful, incorporating modern lines and curves. It’s also very compact and can fit in almost all available space. The effective liquid cooling system also ensure optimal functioning of the battery even during very hot days.
#3:What are the dimensions and metrics of the Tesla Powerwall 2 Home Battery?
It’s compact at only being 6.1 inches thick. It has a length of 45.3 inches. Its width is 29.7 inches. It can be easily mounted to walls whether indoors or outdoors and can even be installed upright on the ground. It weighs around 122 kg. Its capacity is 13.2kWh of electricity.
#4:What are the essential functions of the Tesla Powerwall 2 Home Battery?
When the Tesla Powerwall 2 is connected to your photovoltaic solar panels, your solar panels are going to be far more efficient than they have ever been. The solar panels are going to charge the Powerwall 2 during the day and at night you can seamlessly switch to the Powerwall 2 as the main power source. This means, lower electric charges for you since you will no longer require electricity from the grid when it is more expensive. If your home requires more power, then you can just stack Powerwall 2 batteries together since they are designed to be stackable. There is also a Tesla App available that makes battery storage capacity, consumption and solar power generation tracking easy.
With the installation of 17 complete solar power stations each with its corresponding Tesla Powerwall 2 Home Battery at the Harris Crossing in Townsville, SuperGreen Solutions just finished the world’s largest Tesla Solar Powerwall 2 installation. This display village project is proof that entire villages can become solar powered with the right technology and great planning. This large project is a piece of the future that we can see and feel today. Take part of this green future by purchasing a Tesla Powerwall 2 Home Battery.
