Tesla Powerwalls Run Our Neighborhood


We recently signed up for our local utilities smart battery program. It allows the utility to charge and discharge our battery when they need it. In return for making it available to them and when the grid needs a boost, we're credited $20 per month on our electricity bill.

Our battery system (3 Tesla Powerwall 2s) can discharge at up 15 kW sustained. This level of power would be able to remove the load of 6 to 10 homes (depending on their energy use) from the grid. 

Well, as you can see from the email above, the first event is starting today. They could be feeding the grid with our stored solar rays.
