Tesla has been selling a new version of the Powerwall called the Tesla Powerwall 2. The difference between this and its predecessor is that it has twice as much power, so you can store more energy for later use. It also has an improved battery management system which allows you to prioritize when your energy goes to certain loads in your home. This means if you need a burst of power during a storm, then your refrigerator will be able to continue running while other items are powered down temporarily.

Tesla powerwall 2
Tesla power wall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that stores energy from solar panels, utility grids, or other renewable sources. Powerwall can be connected to one of the following systems:
– A Tesla electric vehicle providing an additional buffer for peak demand periods and time-shifting when surplus electricity generation exceeds personal consumption;
– Backup system in case of power outage;
– Grid service provider to help manage spikes in demand, reduce the need for new fossil fuel generation and provide backup support during peak periods.
The Tesla Powerwall is an AC battery with liquid thermal control. It has an inverter for converting DC electric current to standard household alternating current and can be charged from the grid or by solar panels via a built-in Solar Connector. The installer provides electrical service upgrade options including transfer switches that accommodate both power sources so your home can be powered by electricity from the grid and Powerwall.
Tesla power wall is available in two sizes:
– The Tesla power Wall Standard (with a capacity of 13.0 kWh);
– The Tesla power Wall Twin (with a capacity of 26.0 kWh).
The Tesla power wall is available in the following configurations:
- Powerwall Home Battery;
- Powerpack Commercial, and Utility-scale battery.
There are various features that each configuration has, so it’s best to select a specific one when shopping for your new energy storage device. The list below shows some of the major differences.
– A Powerwall Home Battery is designed to be used as a backup power supply for energy outages. It’s also meant to store the excess electricity generated from solar panels, but it cannot feed back into the grid when needed;
– The Tesla Powerpack on the other hand can provide electricity during peak hours and even sell any surplus back to the grid.
Tesla Powerwall 2 Cost
The cost for Tesla’s new Powerwall is about $13,000. That price can be reduced to ~$11,500 if you buy the power system with an accompanying photovoltaic solar installation. For some people, this may seem like a hefty upfront investment but it will pay off in time by providing cheaper electricity and increasing home value as the battery is a component of the home’s electrical system.
New features in the Powerwall include:
– Integrated inverter, so it can be connected to solar panels or grid power and work as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). The UPS will allow emergency shut down with six hours of full load runtime on the battery.
– The Powerwall is smaller, lighter, and cheaper than the original. It comes with a ten-year warranty and has protection from extremely low temperatures.
– A new energy management software system that makes it possible to install multiple batteries in homes for expanded capacity (up to 960 kWh). This allows people who live off of solar power or are off the grid to store their own power.
– The new Powerwall has a built-in ethernet port and is compatible with Tesla’s solar roof tiles.
The Powerwall should be able to withstand at least 20000 cycles of discharge/recharge before degrading or needing replacement. For comparison, the original Powerwall was rated at around 1000 cycles.
