Pretty much everyone under the sun has heard of Tesla and its famous (or perhaps even infamous) CEO, Elon Musk.
Known for its vehicles, Tesla also produces solar roofs, solar panels, and its very own Powerwall backup energy storage system.
Taking the high road, we would never trash talk another brand, but we will weigh out the pros and cons that come along with investing in backup power solutions. In this article, Generark goes over Tesla’s Powerwall and investigates how our products stack up againstThe Big T.
What is a Powerwall Again?
Tesla’s Powerwall is basically an integrated battery system that works by storing solar energy that can be utilized for backup protection. Ideally, when the grid goes down, your power will stay on.
Generally easy to operate, the Powerwall can detect outages and will automatically recharge via sunlight and can keep your appliances running – for days if needed. Although Tesla has created a reliable backup energy system no doubt, the fact remains that the Powerwall is fairly large and monolithic. It will take up a huge section of a wall, which might be how it got its name.
Tesla’s Powerwall 2.0 has not been for individual purchases since April of 2021. Customers now have to install a brand new Tesla solar roof system or solar panel in order to take advantage of the Powerwall. Essentially, Tesla will not do any new retrofits for existing solar panels. This might equal a bit of a bummer for many people.
Tesla’s popular CEO Elon Musk recently announced (via tweet) that Tesla solar roof systems and solar panels are now bundled with the Powerwall. This means that customers have to purchase a Powerwall whenever they acquire a solar power system through Tesla.
So, how much does a Tesla Powerwall cost? Generally, customers interested in purchasing the Powerwall can plan to spend anywhere between $12,000 and $15,600. Although there may be incentives depending on your area of residence, this is still a pretty big chunk of change for most people. The total cost includes the Powerwall battery, inverter, other components, as well as estimated installation costs.
Buying solar panels and the installation of the product (which includes the Tesla unit) won’t be your only expenses, either. Customers also have to obtain all necessary permits required by your state, county, or city of residence. In short, going with the Powerwall is a large investment and will create more than a few logistical headaches.
What About Generark?
Tesla makes great products and there’s no denying it. But some of the major drawbacks include lack of portability, overall cost, and the level of commitment customers agree to when making their purchase.
OurHomePower 2 can deliver Tesla-like power without the hassle and costs a fraction of what a Tesla Powerwall does. Financing options are available for customers for a monthly expense that is probably lower than many people’s designer coffee expenses per month.
The Generark Solar Generator is the first emergency power supply that is custom-tailored for the modern home and beyond. Customers will receive the HomePower 2 backup battery power station as well as SolarPower 2 all-weather portable solar panels. All you have to do is turn it on, plug it in, and rock and roll.
