Powerwall is sleekly designed and powerful home battery capable of storing your solar energy and using it during the day any time your home consumption exceeds that of your solar generation, or at night when your solar system is off line. It also automatically detects grid outages or blackouts and seamlessly kicks in to provide backup power to any loads you designate in your home. A properly sized solar and Powerwall system can make your home virtually grid independent and guard you against any current or future utility rate changes.
Every Powerwall system comes installed with both solar monitoring, Powerwall monitoring and home consumption monitoring, so you’ll know exactly what your solar is producing and what your home is consuming at any given time.
The Tesla app gives you a real time powerflow that shows a directional flow from all your energy sources. It also keeps track of backup history, telling you how many times and on what dates you experienced a power outage that Powerwall covered.

If a grid outage happens during the day, Powerwall will keep your solar system on so it can continue to power your home and charge your batteries. If an outage occurs in the evening, Powerwall will kick in and seamlessly continue to power any loads you designate as backup loads in your system design phase.
Powerwall has a “Self Powered” Mode that allows you to achieve a self consumption system, or a situation where your home is powered self-sufficiently from solar energy by day and stored power in the evenings.
Powerwall has an “Advanced Time Based Control” mode that allows you to reserve your battery to cover your demand at times your utility may specify as peak demand hours. Some utilities charge higher rates during these defined peak demand hours and you can safeguard against those rate changes by programming them into your app.
