The Powerwall is home battery designed to power homes and fortify against power outages. By storing energy generated from solar panels or from charging when rates are low, it offers homes independence from the utility grid and the security of an emergency backup. With a clean, compact and elegant design, it easily mounts on any wall indoor or out. Current home batteries are bulky, expensive to install, and expensive to maintain. Powerwall’s lithium ion battery inherits Tesla’s proven battery technology to power a home safely and economically. Completely automated, it installs easily and requires no maintenance. Powerwall mounts seamlessly on a wall and integrates with the local grid to harness excess power and give customers the flexibility to draw energy from their own reserve. Without sacrificing a sleek and approachable design, multiple Powerwalls can be paired to provide more available energy depending on the customer's energy needs. Mounted indoors or outdoors, Powerwall hangs like a piece of art adding beauty to the home while supporting a mission to change the way the world addresses sustainability.
