Does the Tesla Powerwall work with solar panels?

Does the Tesla Powerwall work with solar?

Last week, Tesla Motors announced their new Powerwall home battery pack. There’s a 7 kWh hour model for daily use (such as with a solar system or time-of-use metering) and a 10 kWh model for occasional backup use.

In brief, we expect it to work with or without with solar, and we know that Tesla has partnered with SolarEdge for the necessary AC/DC inverters. As one of SolarEdge’s first US distributors, we already carry their inverters and will carry Powerwalls once released.

There’s a lot more detail on our Tesla Powerwall & Solar page, or see our back-up power kits and complete solar systems if you want comparable solutions that are immediately available.
