Tesla Powerwall Home Battery Storage

Tesla Powerwall is a smart home battery system that integrates with your existing solar system and can provide backup power for when the grid goes down. In Australia, solar batteries have completely revolutionised the way households use, store and manage their power, now making it possible to run your household on solar power 24 hours a day.

The Tesla Powerwall 2 was introduced into the Australian market back in 2017 and came with a number of improvements over the first iteration. It has over double the storage capacity, includes an integrated battery inverter-charger and the Tesla app, performs better in a range of temperatures and is easier to install.

Tesla Powerwall enables solar households to further reduce their power bill and maximise solar self-consumption. In fact, with a capacity of 13.5 kWh, a typical family home will be able to run all evening on stored solar power.

1KOMMA5° has led the charge with Tesla’s rollout of one of the most exciting solar batteries to hit the market, becoming one of the largest installers in Australia, installing the Tesla Powerwall in both Greater Sydney and Melbourne.

This experience gives our customers the peace of mind that their installation is backed up with responsive technical support and customer service.

Tesla Powerwall Installation

The Tesla home battery weighs 114kg and can be mounted on the ground or a wall in the installation process. However, in compliance with Australian regulations, the Tesla Powerwall 2 installation must be done in a non-liable area of the home. This means installation is limited to enclosed or sheltered garages, or outdoors on the side of your house.

The IP56 weather rating allows Tesla Powerwall to operate efficiently in a broad range of temperatures, providing a steady stream of power from outdoor installation. The liquid cooling and rated operating temperatures ranging from -20 to 50 degrees allow for this. Keep in mind that, as with any electrical device, reduced output may be experienced at the extreme ends of the temperature scale.
