Tesla Powerwall is designed to be scalable. Homeowners can install multiple units to increase their energy storage capacity. This is particularly useful for households with higher energy consumption or those looking to create a larger buffer for extended outages.

LFP Chemistry

Powerwall offers advantages such as improved safety, longer lifespan, and better thermal stability compared to other lithium-ion chemistries.

Smart Energy Management

Powerwall comes with advanced energy management software that allows homeowners to monitor their energy consumption and production in real-time. It can intelligently decide when to charge and discharge based on utility rates, energy demand, and grid conditions, maximising savings and reducing the reliance on grid power.

How it works

Tesla Powerwall is in a league of its own. With its combination of features, capabilities, and integration with renewable energy systems, it stands out from other batteries. Here’s what makes Powerwall unique:

Integration with Solar Systems

Powerwall is designed to work seamlessly with solar panels, enabling homeowners to store excess energy generated during the day and use it at night or when the sun isn't shining. This integration enhances the efficiency of solar energy usage and reduces reliance on the grid.

Backup Power

Powerwall’s ability to provide backup power during grid outages is one of its most prominent features. This is especially valuable during loadshedding, in areas prone to unpredictable power cuts, or in regions with unreliable grid infrastructure. The seamless transition from grid power to battery power ensures uninterrupted power supply to critical appliances.

Compact Design

Powerwall's sleek and compact design allows for easy wall-mounting, making it a space-efficient solution for both residential and commercial installations.

Brand Recognition and Ecosystem

Tesla's reputation for innovation and its brand recognition contribute to Powerwall's uniqueness. With vast expertise in electric vehicles and sustainable energy solutions, Tesla’s energy storage products are cutting-edge.

Step 5

Remote Management

Powerwall can be remotely monitored and controlled through the Tesla app. This feature allows users to manage their energy usage and storage settings from anywhere, providing greater control and flexibility.

Reap the benefits of reliable, clean power

Powerwall’s electrical interface provides a simple connection to any home or building. Its revolutionary compact design achieves market-leading energy density and is easy to install.

Frequently asked questions

What is Tesla Powerwall?

Tesla Powerwall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery storage system designed to store excess energy generated by solar panels or from the grid. It allows homeowners to use stored energy during peak demand times or in case of power outages.

How does Powerwall work with solar panels?

Powerwall works with solar panels by storing surplus energy generated during sunny periods. This stored energy can then be used at night or during cloudy days, optimising energy usage and potentially reducing reliance on the grid.

What is the cost of Powerwall?

The cost of a Powerwall unit can vary depending on factors such as location, installation complexity, and exchange rates. Check Rubicon's website or contact Rubicon representatives for the most current pricing information.

How many Powerwalls do I need?

The number of Powerwalls you need depends on your energy consumption, usage patterns, and the degree of backup power you desire. Rubicon provides recommendations based on your household's specific needs during the consultation process.

Can Powerwall provide backup power during outages?

Yes, Powerwall is designed to provide backup power during grid outages. It automatically detects an outage and switches to battery power, ensuring critical appliances and devices remain operational.

Is Powerwall compatible with off-grid systems?

While Powerwall is primarily designed to operate in conjunction with the grid, it can be used in certain off-grid setups when combined with appropriate energy sources like solar panels and backup generators. Rubicon can provide guidance on such setups.

What is the lifespan of Powerwall?

Powerwall is designed to have a long lifespan, typically around 70% at 10 years after the initial installation date - with unlimited cycles if used for back-up purposes only. The exact lifespan can vary based on usage and environmental conditions. Rubicon offers a 10-year warranty on Tesla Powerwall.

Is Powerwall safe?

Yes, Powerwall is designed with safety features to prevent overcharging, over-discharging, and other potential hazards. Its lithium iron phosphate (LFP) chemistry also enhances safety compared to some other lithium-ion chemistries.

What warranty does Powerwall come with?

Rubicon offers a 10-year warranty on Tesla Powerwall.

Can I monitor and control Powerwall remotely?

Yes, you can monitor and control Powerwall remotely through the Tesla app. The app provides real-time data on energy production, consumption, and battery status. You can also customise settings and view historical performance.

Is installation included?

No, installation is not included. Depending on your region, we can connect you with someone in our network of Powerwall certified installers.

How does Powerwall impact energy bills?

By storing excess energy and using it during peak demand times, Powerwall can help reduce energy bills by minimising the amount of electricity drawn from the grid. It's especially effective when combined with solar panels.

What are the environmental benefits?

Using Powerwall can contribute to a more sustainable energy ecosystem by optimising the use of renewable energy sources like solar power. It helps reduce reliance on fossil fuels and decreases carbon emissions.

Is there government incentive or rebate eligibility?

Currently, for a limited time period, the South African government is offering a rebate to individuals for new and unused solar PV panels. Businesses can offset the cost of renewable energy assets used for electricity generation by reducing their taxable income. Rubicon representatives can provide information on available incentives.
