Turn up the savings with the Tesla Powerwall 2


Turn up the savings with solar and Tesla Powerwall 2

Taking control of your energy usage is more important than ever. As risks to our environment increase and energy prices are on the rise, clean energy and green living choices are fast becoming a priority. And what better place to start making changes than in your own home.

Metricon, in partnership with Bradford Solar, encourage Australians to empower their homes and save money every day by making energy efficient choices. As leaders in solar energy in Australia, Bradford Solar brings you Tesla Powerwall 2. Charged by a state of the art solar panel system, Tesla Powerwall 2 holds enough energy to power an average home during the day and through the night. It puts you in charge of your energy in a clean, environmentally friendly way.

How does the Tesla Powerwall work?

As efficient as it is stylish, Tesla Powerwall 2 is completely automated, low profile, requires no maintenance and includes a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty.

How does it work?

  • Solar panels are placed on your roof to catch the sunlight
  • Solar panels convert the sunlight into Direct Current (DC) electricity
  • DC Electricity cannot be used in your home, so an inverter converts the energy to Alternating Current (AC) electricity which can be used for your appliances
  • At the heart of your Bradford Solar ChargePack is Tesla Powerwall, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that charges using electricity from your solar panels.
  • The electricity is then monitored and managed by you via a cloud based app on any smart device
  • The power is literally in your hands, day and night, to run your home with low cost solar energy, stored until you’re ready to use it.

The benefits of a Tesla Powerwall

  1. Prior to this type of storage system being available, any excess solar energy generated by a home was either wasted or sent back to the grid. With Tesla Powerwall, you retain and store the energy you convert from your solar panels, ready for when you need to use it.
  2. The power to see, track and control your solar consumption, energy production and energy use is at your fingertips. By using smart technology, accessible via smartphone, tablet or computer, you can control your energy efficiency more readily than ever before.
  3. Generating your own solar energy is simple, efficient and environmentally friendly. Reduce your reliance on the grid and lower your electricity bill.
  4. Tesla Powerwall 2 provides a great backup for you home in the instance of a power outage; your your lights, Wi-Fi and refrigerator will be kept running. This feature is available as an upgrade to the standard pack – but a very worthwhile one!
