Tesla Powerwall 2 – What Is It All About?

Powerwall is a rechargeable home battery system designed to maximise your home’s energy independence. That means backup power and a smaller carbon footprint for your home, and potentially savings on your electricity bill. Powerwall is an intelligent system that can be customised to your energy needs, with the ability to charge from solar or from the grid so energy is always available on demand.

Installing a Tesla Powerwall System will deliver multiple benefits

Backup Power

Depending on the inverter, solar energy will continue to power your home and charge your Powerwall during a blackout.

Self-Powered Home

At night, Powerwall can provide your home with clean energy that you’ve generated from solar during the day.

Time-Based Control

If your energy supplier offers Time-of-Use rates, you can use less expensive solar and grid energy you’ve already generated to avoid electrical charges during more expensive rate periods.


With the Tesla app, you can navigate between Powerwall features, monitor its energy and power usage and receive notifications when it switches to Backup-Only mode.

How Powerwall Works

Powerwall gives you the ability to store energy for later use and works with or without solar. Each Powerwall system includes at least one Powerwall and a Backup Gateway, which provides energy monitoring, metering and management for the system. The Backup Gateway learns and adapts to your energy use over time, receives over-the-air updates just like the rest of Tesla’s products and is capable of managing up to ten Powerwalls.

Use With Solar

When the sun rises, solar begins powering the home. When additional power is required within the home, the home can pull from the utility grid.

Powerwall is charged by solar during the day, when solar panels are producing more electricity than the home is consuming. Powerwall then stores that energy until the home needs it, such as when solar is no longer producing at night, or when the utility grid is offline during a power outage.

The next day when the sun comes out, solar recharges Powerwall so you have a cycle of clean, renewable energy.

Use Without Solar

If your electricity rates vary throughout the day, Powerwall will charge when electricity costs are low and discharge when electricity costs are high, generating automatic savings. Powerwall will also provide backup power by detecting grid outages and automatically becoming the home’s main power source.
