This property is reliant on electricity with 2 electric vehicles, 2 heat pumps and also experiences the odd power outage due to its semi-rural location. So, by storing as much excess Solar generation and charging the battery at night with cheaper of grid electricity this homeowner is maximizing the effective use age of cheap and free power.
Used to store excess solar gain from a 20kW Solar PV system and to store off peak electricity for use in peak times. The Tesla Powerwall 2 system was also installed to back up primary electrical circuits in the event of a power cut – including lighting, sockets, refrigeration, hot water and heating.
To maximise your savings, Tesla and Octopus Energy have created the new Tesla Energy Plan – an innovative low-cost energy tariff to help you – all owners of Solar panels and Powerwalls – the grid, and the environment.
