Benefits of Your Powerwall
Powerwall lets you store solar energy generated during the day and use it to power your home at night. It can also back up your home in the event of a utility power outage. Powerwall is compact, safe, and includes a built-in battery inverter, which provides easier integration and over-the-air updates for new features and functions.
Use solar and Powerwall to reduce reliance on the grid and run your home off solar day and night.
Protect your home from a power outage with seamless and reliable backup power.
Reduce your electricity bill if your utility offers a time-of-use rate plan.

SELF-POWER YOUR HOME
WITH SOLAR AND POWERWALL
A self-powered home is one that runs off solar and Powerwall, which gives you the ability to own your energy and reduce your reliance on the grid. With Powerwall you can use more of your solar by storing the excess solar energy and using it at night, doubling the usefulness of your solar panels.
By combining solar and Powerwall, you can extend your hours of backup power. Solar panels, when installed by themselves, are required to shut down during a utility power outage for grid safety. However, when paired with Powerwall, solar panels can continue to operate during an outage, extending the hours of backup power.
Tesla Mobile App
The Tesla mobile app allows you to have full visibility into your self-powered home. You can monitor your home solar generation, battery power flow, and household consumption in real-time from anywhere.
Secure your home from a power outage with reliable backup power. Powerwall is able to detect a grid outage, disconnect from the grid and bring power back to your home in a fraction of a second. That is over 100x faster than typical standby generators, and fast enough to keep your appliances running without interruption. You will not have to reset your clocks or your alarm.
Our goal is to provide backup power to your entire home. However, depending on the type of appliances at your home, we may recommend an essential load backup instead of whole home backup.
Whole Home Backup
Your entire home is backed up by our recommended number of Powerwalls. In some cases, an upgrade to your electrical panel may be needed and we will advise you if this is the case. You can add more Powerwalls to keep your house operational longer during an outage.
Essential Load Backup
If your electrical situation doesn’t allow for a whole home backup, we can backup select essential loads. Since lights and outlets require less energy, a single Powerwall will typically be sufficient and a secondary electrical panel is usually required.
