Wolf River Electric offers a customized solar-plus-battery solution that enables you to access the free, abundant power of the sun, protect you against demand rate structures, and reduce your reliance on fossil fuels.

Tesla Powerwall Storing Solar Energy

With a Testa Powerwall you can store solar energy generated during the day for use any time. During the day, the sun shines on your solar panels, charging your battery. At night, your home draws electricity from your battery, powering your home with clean, sustainable energy 24/7. Installing Powerwall with Wolf River Electric is easy. We take care of everything from system design, permitting, installation, and financing. Powerwall consists of a 14 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system, an integrated inverter and software that intelligently dispatches electricity when it’s needed most. If your utility prices vary throughout the day, set Powerwall in Time-Based Control to maximize savings. Powerwall learns patterns in your energy usage and solar generation– using stored energy to avoid purchasing high-cost electricity. The unit mounts seamlessly on a wall or on the ground, indoors or outdoors, and is connected to the grid to export excess energy, maximizing your opportunity for economic benefit.

Tesla Powerwall Storing Solar Energy Benefits

  • Self-Powered – Powerwall increases the self-consumption of solar power generation. Powerwall can store surplus solar energy during daylight hours and use that energy later when the sun is not shining.
  • Time-Based Control – Powerwall can charge during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharge during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher.
  • Back-up power – Assures power in the event of a grid outage.
    Demand Response/Time Based Control plus Energy Storage helps Minimize Distributive Generation Rate and Demand Charges.

Reduction of energy drawn from the utility during peak times can really make a difference on your company’s bottom line and/or your home’s monthly energy costs if your local utility should have a time of use rate structure. Wolf River Electric can help you collect data with an interval metering system that automatically measures and records energy consumption. The system measures how much energy you’re using at different times of the day, or on different days of the week. Seeing these patterns makes it much easier to find routine waste in your building and peak usage times.

Are Tesla power walls worth it?

Cost at around $10,000 installed for 13.5 kilowatt hours (kWh) of usable storage. This is a relatively good value given the high cost of solar energy storage. It’s still not an amazing return on investment, but better than its peers.

The Tesla Powerwall 2 is an AC Coupled battery. That means it simply connects into your solar system via the 230VAC in your switchboard. It does not connect into your solar panels or inverter, so it will work with any existing grid connected solar system.

The Tesla Powerwall is one such option and it’s even more powerful than many of the traditional battery backups available. How? For starters, in its recommended configuration, the Tesla Powerwall can keep your home powered for seven days (or more!) without you having to do a thing.
