Loud enough to drown out the most enthusiastic Christmas carolers or muffle the reindeer on the roof, gas-powered generators make enough noise to make “silent night” the stuff of sweet dreams. Perfect for a long winter’s nap, the silent and incredibly reliable Tesla Powerwall is the best battery alternative to a noisy generator.
It’s true. The noise from a backup gas-powered generator is enough to turn the most joyful holiday reveler into a Grinch. With a Tesla Powerwall as your backup battery, it’ll be comfortable and easy to sleep in heavenly peace.
No Noise. No Creatures Stirring.
Imagine cozy winter nights spent listening to the roar of a nearby generator instead of the roar of a warm fireplace. Yeah, that situation probably isn’t on anyone’s wish list.
Gassing up the generator is a messy hassle and it’s expensive. It also has to get maintenance done just about every year, and even worse, replaced every few years.
Of course, you can go with a silent and super powerful Tesla Powerwall as your backup battery.
Enjoy all the cozy comforts of home complete with the peaceful ambiance everyone so loves this time of year.
With the blissful silence of the Tesla Powerwall, you and your neighbors will wake up on Christmas morning (and every morning for that matter) feeling merry and bright.
Tesla Powerwall Outperforms Generic Generators
Because of the advancements in backup batteries like the Tesla Powerwall, gas-powered generators are going the way of the one-horse open sleigh.
Storage, efficiency, power output, the Tesla Powerwall outperforms generators in nearly every category. Take for instance the fact that the Tesla Powerwall 2 detects grid outages in just a fraction of a second and brings power back to your home 100x faster than traditional generators.
And with a lot less noise to boot.
Your appliances and electronics won’t have any interruption. That goes without saying, your family and neighbors will probably thank you for not interrupting them with any jarring, gurgling generator noises.
More than likely you won’t even notice the power went out. It’s that fast. While homes on the block go dark and cold, you can comfortably kick back with your eggnog and say, “baby, it’s cold outside.”
You can add a Tesla Powerwall to your system any time or even stack them to get even greater battery storage and backup options. ‘Tis the season, right?
How the Powerwall Works
Stay Snug Through Power Outages
Like summer thunderstorms and hurricanes, the average winter snowstorm and extreme polar vortexes wreak havoc on power grids. An outage when your home desperately needs heat is as uncomfortable as it gets.
Before you huddle up in your house wearing your heaviest coats or fork over money for a generator and its fuel, consider the alternative: a Tesla Powerwall backup battery.
There’s a reason it’s the best backup battery on the market today. Well, maybe a few reasons. The Tesla Powerwall 2 battery has double the capacity of the original Powerwall battery and even greater power output.
You’ll also love the round-trip efficiency of the Powerwall. Round-trip efficiency measures the amount of energy lost over time in storage. The higher the percentage, the less energy lost and, therefore, the higher the efficiency. At a 90% round-trip efficiency, the Tesla Powerwall 2 will keep you and your household sufficiently powered through winter outages.
The way we see it, all is calm because there is no disruption to your life.
And all is bright with power running through the house.
Solar Tax Credits Even a Scrooge Can Love
Not all the best gifts come wrapped under the tree. Sure a financial incentive might not be the most fun gift to tear open, but the federal government has a Solar Tax Credit that’s so good you may spit out your hot cocoa.
Go solar in 2020 and you’ll be able to take advantage of a 26% tax credit applied to both your solar panels and your Tesla Powerwall 2 battery. Of course, if you miss out on the tax credit in 2020, 2021 also has a tax credit in store.
Switch to solar in 2021 and receive a 22% Solar Tax Credit from the federal government of the United States. Just like the 2020 credit, the 2021 credit applies to your solar panels and your Powerwall backup battery.
It makes tremendous financial sense to include the Tesla Powerwall in your solar installation while the Solar Tax Credit covers all the components of your solar setup including home battery storage.
That kind of savings is enough to make Ebenezer Scrooge crack a smile.
