In that baking hot sun last week we were busy installing 1 x East/West facing Array of JA Solar Smart panels with 2 x Tesla Powerwall 2 Batteries with the new back up gateway.
One of the primary functions of the Powerwall is to provide backup power in the event of a utility power outage. If the outage lasts for an extended period, Powerwall can actually recharge itself from a solar power system. That capability means that while your neighbours might be without power for hours, days, or even weeks, a solar-connected Powerwall system can effectively keep your home powered indefinitely, within the constraints of the size of the solar system and the number of Powerwalls installed, of course.
The future is here!!
