Bradford Solar prepares Australia for Tesla Powerwall 2

29 Oct 2016 - Tesla have unveiled their next generation Powerwall in California.

Tesla’s new Powerwall 2 is the next step in a comprehensive approach to green, all-electric power delivery. This updated home battery is similar to Powerwall 1, in that it’s a large, rectangular (now with more rectangularity) device designed to live on a wall in your home (likely in the garage or somewhere similar) – but the big differences are on the inside.

The Powerwall 2 has more than twice the energy storage capacity of the original version with 14 kWh capacity. Over double the capacity means double the ability to keep your home humming with 
guilt-free electric solar power. Elon Musk said that the Powerwall 2 has enough power to charge lights, sockets and refrigerator for a standard 4 bedroom home for an entire day. 

The average Australian home will have the ability to run completely off solar power with little to no reliance on the grid. Improving supply for solar power storage has been one of Musk’s key goals with Tesla recently, and it’s clear it wants to do even more with Powerwall 2.

Powerwall 2 offers a new flatter design and more angular look, and will be available from CSR Bradford when the product hits Australian shores. Production for Powerwall 2 begins at the Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada in the next few weeks with installations in Australia to follow in 2017. 

In a Q&A following the event, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that they full “expect to sell more Powerwalls than cars,” since the product has so much appeal in parts of the world where power isn’t reliable, or widespread, or is very expensive.
