Tesla PowerWall 2 with SolarEdge
For this project we were asked to provide a quote for a Tesla Powerwall, and a PV array that maximised the output of the clients roof.
Unfortunately, the clients roof is very small, so we could only squeeze on 6 x 345W all black Q Cells panels onto this slate roof around a Velux window.
We selected a 2.2kW SolarEdge inverter, with optimisers for each panel, to maximise the output of the panels.
Then, onto the powerhouse, the Tesla Powerwall.
A 13.5kWh beast of a battery, which is not only charged by the panels, but by the clients off peak tariff, to ensure that maximum savings can be utilised to power the clients all electric home.
The battery charges from the solar excess, and also from grid at 5kW, and discharges into the home at 5kW.
One of the best features of the Tesla Powerwall however is the facility to operate the home in a power outage. Not only that, but it allows the inverter to operate in islanding mode, producing energy to charge the battery and power the home even when the power remains off.
Both the SolarEdge and Tesla monitoring apps are in operation, providing data for every aspect of the installation.
Smart data analysis allows the Tesla app to charge the battery from the grid if it is aware of an incoming storm or poor weather.
This allows you home to stay powered should the storm knock out the grid supply.
This was a great project to work on, and our client is very happy with the system we have designed for them.
