September has been a busy month so far. Delighted to have achieved Certified Installer status for Tesla Powerwall home energy storage systems, Forest Electrical are busy rolling out the Powerwall batteries to customers with existing solar PV arrays alongside those new domestic customers keen to take the opportunity of the remaining Feed In Tariff subsidies.forklift-with-tesla2

Solar Electricity can now be stored for later use, rather than exported to the grid and then purchased to supply household demand when the solar generation is low.

tesla-install8The Powerwall integrates seamlessly with existing PV arrays as well as with new PV systems to provide a sleek, yet robust storage solution to help future-proof household running costs.

Offering the opportunity to store 6.4kWh of power for use when demand requires it, the Powerwall vastly improves the self-consumption of your own solar generated power , up to 80%, reducing your reliance on grid power even further.

The system comprises a lithium-ion battery, housed in a weather-proof container for indoor or outdoor mounting, offered with a 10 year product warranty. The added bonus of intelligent, cloud based monitoring is a real plus. Providing insight into your PV production and household electricity consumption whilst displaying the power flow between the PV array, storage (hot water or battery), grid and house loads as well tracking real-time system data is all presented in an easy to read format. As demonstrated in the snapshot here, households are operating practically off-grid until the early hours of the morning.
