What is a Tesla Powerwall?
A Tesla Powerwall is a stationary rechargeable lithium-ion battery used for home energy storage. It stores electricity from solar energy for self-consumption, load shifting, off-the-grid use and backup power.
It is available on-demand and is self-sufficient to power your home, or can be used during the night, or can be used as back up power during power outages and emergencies. The Tesla Powerwall has a built-in battery inverter which makes it compact and easy to integrate into your home.
Tesla has currently released two models – Tesla Powerwall 1 and Tesla Powerwall 2. Larger sizes of the Powerwall are available, they are called Powerpacks.
