Solar panels have been around for a while, but not all batteries are ideal for powering your home using solar energy. Tesla’s Powerwall aims to be different. It is a home battery that charges using solar panels and powers your home in the evening. It can also help when you are dealing with a power outage.
This wall-mounted solution is elegant, compact, and automated. You don’t need to be a technical genius to use it. It stores energy when the rates are lower and powers your home when the rates are high. Powerwall comes in 10 kWh weekly cycle and 7 kWh daily cycle models, both of which should last at least 10 years. You can install multiple batteries to power all your things. The 7 kWh and 10 kWh versions set you back $3000 and $3500 respectively.
