How it works
The Tesla Powerwall is a home battery that offers greater energy independence, and offers you an opportunity to save money by storing energy when it costs less off-peak. You can then use that energy when it’s dark out or as an emergency back up if there’s a power outage.
Energy independence and savings
The Tesla home battery can be paired with small-scale solar such as rooftop panels to store locally generated energy, or it can be used without solar as a battery to store power from the grid. During a storm or emergency, the battery is able to power essential parts of the home like lights, a refrigerator, well pump, furnace and security systems. GMP will partner with customers to utilize the batteries during peak energy times to directly lower costs for customers by reducing transmission and capacity costs.
