After several years of waiting, Tesla officially brought its electrical energy storage solution to Portugal. We are talking about the Tesla Powerwall, which is nothing more than a battery that you can install in your home.
For those who have solar panels installed in their home, the Tesla Powerwall could be the solution to increase their efficiency. Even if you don’t have panels at home, you can use this product from Elon Musk’s company to store energy.
Tesla Powerwall arrives in Portugal with no price yet defined
For those who don’t know, the Powerwall is the battery designed by Tesla for homes. It is a very common product in homes with solar panels in order to make the most of this investment.
With its official arrival in Portugal, one of the main questions that arises is how much a copy will cost. Unfortunately, Tesla has not yet released this information, sending visitors to a page where they can contact an installation technician to obtain a quote.
As the Powerwall is a battery, its main function is to store energy from, for example, solar panels. This way, users can use the energy generated during the day to spend at night or even on days when the sun is not shining.
Although this is the most common scenario, the Tesla Powerwall can also be used by those who do not have solar panels at home. In this case, users can charge the battery during periods when the contracted energy is cheaper to spend at times when it is more expensive.
It is worth noting that Tesla Powerwall users can use this product to also power the public energy grid. In Portugal, however, this option is still far from being feasible.
The Powerwall has an energy storage capacity of 13.5 kW. Its normal power is 5 kW continuous, reaching a peak of 7 kW.
The Tessla Powerwall can be installed on the floor or outside the house in a set of up to 10 pieces. It is worth noting that it is IP 67 certified, which protects it from adverse events such as rain or dust.
Users will also have a smartphone application available. Here you will have access to relevant information about the status of your Powerwall in real time.
Those interested in purchasing a Powerwall can now declare this intention in the Tesla official website. After submitting some data, you will be contacted by a technician with the price and all the steps necessary to carry out your installation.
