What is a Tesla Powerwall?

The Tesla Powerwall is a rechargeable home battery system used as a backup power source to provide electricity to your home during power outages and when electricity costs are high (and recharges when rates are low). Unlike regular generators, the Powerwall detects power outages automatically and operates noiselessly & without upkeep to power your home until power is restored.

The Powerwall is either charged via a connection to your home electrical supply, or powered with green energy by a connection to solar panels.

As Vancouverites know very well, power outages are not uncommon, can happen at any time of year and can potentially leave your home without power for a significant amount of time.

The Tesla Powerwall is a sleek, green-energy solution for providing peace of mind during these outages for you and your family.
