Powerwall – Energy Storage for Sustainable Homes and Beyond


By: Dustin Derhousoff

A quick end-of-the-week blog post about Tesla’s recently¬†announced plan to take progressive steps in creating efficient sustainability for the homes of tomorrow. Tesla’s Powerwall is intended to play a key role in moving away from the current means of power generation and supply by providing an efficient and simplified way of storing power generated by renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind.

From Tesla’s website: “Powerwall is a home battery that charges using electricity generated from solar panels, or when utility rates are low, and powers your home in the evening. It also fortifies your home against power outages by providing a backup electricity supply. Automated, compact and simple to install, Powerwall offers independence from the utility grid and the security of an emergency backup.”
