For the past half a decade, RevoluSun has been installing our Solar PV systems with the future in mind. The future has arrived with the Tesla Powerwall 2 and we are REALLY excited about offering this to our customers!
Tesla’s Powerwall 2 has a few key benefits, which make this AC battery a great addition to a Solar PV installation, one of which is the ability to run your entire house on the battery similar to a generator. Not only will the Tesla Powerwall notify you of the outage, it will automatically transfer your home from grid supply to battery supplied power. One key advantage while on battery power is your PV system will power your home while it’s sunny and the battery will power your home at night or when it’s cloudy.
Another major application for Tesla Powerwall 2 is for customers who live in towns with municipally operated utilities with unfavorable net metering policies. The Tesla Powerwall 2 will allow these customers to store energy produced during the day and use that energy at night. The onsite energy storage means solar can now be cost effective for customers who historically have not been able to take advantage of vital net metering programs.
While there are several practical applications for the Tesla Powerwall 2, there is of course a major financial advantage as well. When paired with Solar PV, the Tesla Powerwall is eligible for the same 30% federal income tax credit RevoluSun solar customers have come to love! With this tax credit and maintenance free operating capability, many customers have found battery storage to be a more reliable and less costly option compared to conventional whole home generators.
