Why You Need a Solar Battery
It’s not possible to go completely off grid without a battery storage system, even when you have solar installed. So if you’re looking for a reliable way to reduce your electricity bills or avoid blackouts, you’ll need a solar battery.
Top 4 Benefits of the Tesla Powerwall Battery
1. Power through the night.
The most widely known benefit of the Tesla Powerwall is to produce all of your electricity without using energy from your local energy company. Sunpro solar panels often generate more electricity than a home can use during the day when the sun is shining. With the Powerwall, you can store that energy to power your home at night or for later use, instead of letting it go to waste.
2. Avoid surging electric prices.
Energy companies often raise their rates at certain times of the year and the cost of energy is constantly rising. With the Tesla Powerwall you can avoid these rates and peak charges. Even when your solar panels are not producing energy your home will still run on stored energy from the Powerwall. Check to see if your utility offers Time-of-Use rates which allows you to use less expensive solar energy you’ve already generated and stored in your Tesla Powerwall battery. Doing this will allow you to avoid electrical charges during more expensive rate periods.
3. Monitor your energy.
Each Powerwall installation includes a complete energy monitoring solution for your home. You can see how your home both produces and uses energy at any given time. Using the Tesla app, you can monitor your home energy system in real time.
4. Protect your home.
The most enticing benefit of the Tesla Powerwall is to protect your home when disaster hits. When your neighborhood gets hit with storms, your Powerwall will keep your home powered. In addition, your Powerwall can communicate with the National Weather Service. When you enable Storm Watch, your Powerwall can prioritize charging in anticipation of severe weather.
