Solar Energy World announced today the company has been chosen to be a certified installer of the Tesla Powerwall home battery backup system. Tesla’s storage system is a new addition to other best-in-class energy storage products that Solar Energy World offers including Enphase and SolarEdge.
Tesla has been a recognized pioneer in battery storage solutions for homes in recent years. The Tesla brand is highly trusted according to recent consumer awareness and satisfaction surveys. Due to high demand for the Tesla Powerwall, Tesla is very selective on who they will allow to install it.
“We know that our customers love what Tesla is doing in the auto and storage markets with their huge leaps in battery technology. We are proud to say that we can add Tesla Powerwall to our line of home battery backup solutions now.” says Bryan Hacker, Vice President of Sales for Solar Energy World.
Why Demand for Solar Battery Storage Products Like Tesla Powerwall is Growing
Consumer demand for home solar battery backup storage products has been increasing every year with superstorms and power outages becoming commonplace due to climate change. Power companies can take days, even weeks to restore electricity after storms have subsided.
Most solar panel systems are still grid-tied, so for safety reasons when the power goes out, it goes out for solar-powered homeowners too. This changes if the homeowner has added solar battery storage to their system when the solar panels are installed.
With solar storage even if their neighborhood loses power, they won’t. So for homeowners who live in an area where severe storms can leave them without power for days, it makes sense to protect their homes from power loss by installing solar battery backup along with solar panels.
Every day more and more of Solar Energy World’s customers are including solar battery backup with solar panel installation. The solar battery backup works similarly to any rechargeable battery. It absorbs energy and instead of using it immediately saves it for later. The battery will power essentials during outages.
