Want to know about the cheaper Tesla powerwall alternatives for your home? Here we have listed all of the alternatives which you can use for your energy needs.
New Innovations in Solar Power, Tesla Powerwall
Let’s see some of the new innovations in the solar power production first before seeing the alternatives.
- Now we are relying mostly on the nuclear energy and new researches are being made only on the nuclear energy. But we have excess amount of Sunlight which is more than enough for the world’s energy use. Since solar panels are costly and due to power is not constant, solar energy is not used widely.
- But now every year the cost of solar panels becoming cheaper, thanks to the Chinese manufacturers. This is a good news for American states like California and Hawaii since the cost of power is high in those states. Solar power is environmental friendly and doesn’t cost any pollution. This is the future energy source of the world.
- The new solar panels are also more efficient now, it can generate power even during the cloudy climate and from rain. The 3D solar panel can absorb light from all directions and can produce stable output. There are also solar panels which are thin as paper and can also work in the artificial light. This can be a game changer and a good start to the next level.
- Tesla powerwall can store the solar power in the battery and helps using it also during the night. It looks like an piece of art rather than an electronic device. But the Tesla also has some drawbacks, it has only the output capacity of 10 kilowatts hour in which only 2 kilowatts of continuous power output. So you will need more Tesla Powerwall to produce enough power for running the household devices like 950 watt toaster, 1500 watt electric kettle. The battery of Tesla can last long up to 10 years and then it has to be replaced.
|Tesla Powerwall||6.4kWh||3.3kW steady, 5kW peak||3,000 cycles at 80% DoD||10 years||No||$8,000|
|Tesla Powerwall 2||14kWh||5kW steady, 7kW peak||–||10 years||Included||$5,500|
|LG Chem RESU||6.4kWh||3.2kW steady, 5kW peak||6,000 cycles at 80% DoD||15-20 years||No||$7,500|
|Samsung ESS AIO||7.2kWh||4kW steady||6,000 cycles at 90% DoD||15-20 years||–||$15,000|
|Sunverge SIS||11.6 kWh||5kW steady, 8.5kW peak||8,000 cycles at 85% DoD||20 years||–||$14,990|
|Powerstation||17.28 kWh||5 kW, 10 kW, or 15 kW||–||10 years||Included||–|
|Dutch Hybrid||230kW||1 kW to 30 kW||at least 3,300 cycles||10 years||–||–|
From the above table, you can see that LG Chem RESU has the same specifications and features as that of Tesla Powerwall but the LG Chem RESU is $500 dollars cheaper in price. So if you buy it then you can save some money. Also, the Powerwall doesn’t comes with all equipments and you have to buy some additional items separately. But in case of Powerstation, it has everything you needed to generate power to your home in the package itself. Which one would you pick for your home? Tell us below.
Update: Powerwall 2 seems to be the cheapest and best as per now. Now Tesla has also introduced Roof Solar Tiles which you can install at your home. Unlike the old ugly Solar Shingles, these Solar Tiles looks like a normal roof.
