Tesla Powerwall 3

The Tesla Powerwall 3 is the latest iteration of the Texas-based tech giant’s fully integrated home battery storage solution. It builds on the strengths of the Powerwall 2 and Powerwall Plus that came before it, offering better peak power output and a built-in solar inverter to capture and store solar energy efficiently. Capable of an 11.5 kW continuous power supply, more than twice that of the Powerwall 2, maxing out at 5kW, a single Tesla Powerwall 3 can power an entire home, including large appliances like refrigerators and air conditioners during an outage. 

Key Tesla Powerwall 3 - Features and Benefits

The new Tesla Powerwall 3 offers homeowners a great deal of energy independence and enables smart energy management.

11.5 kW Continuous Power

One of the most talked-about features of the Tesla Powerwall 3 is its 11.5 kW continuous power supply, considerably up from the 5 kW available with the Powerwall 2. The higher output enables the Powerwall 3 to run a greater number of appliances continuously during an outage while still staying within the battery’s prescribed power limit. Everything from lights and fans to larger home appliances like TVs and air conditioners can be run on a single Powerwall 3 unit. 

Boosted Load Start Capability

While the Powerwall 2 and Powerwall Plus feature a load start capacity of 106 LRA and 118 LRA, respectively, the Tesla Powerwall 3 gets a massive boost with its 185 LRA load start capability. This means that the Powerwall 3 can better manage the sudden burst of power that larger appliances demand when turned on, so refrigerators or air conditioners can be fired up without issue, even during a power outage. 

Efficient Solar Integration 

Capable of a 20 kW DC maximum solar STC (Standard Test Conditions) input, the Tesla Powerwall 3 is extremely efficient at storing and managing solar energy and making it available to the household even when the sun isn’t out. The enhanced solar energy storage capabilities of the Tesla Powerwall 3 offer homeowners a great deal of energy independence

Six Maximum Power Point Trackers (MPPT)

With the Powerwall 3, Tesla reintroduces an integrated solar inverter, a feature previously included in the Powerwall Plus but omitted in the Powerwall 2, which required an external inverter. The built-in solar inverter in the Tesla Powerwall 3 features six Maximum Power Point Trackers (MPPTs), up from four in the Powerwall Plus. With these MPPTs, the Tesla Powerwall 3 can dynamically adjust the solar panels to optimize their performance, ensuring efficient storage and use of solar energy. Also, the new system can expand with up to three optional 13.5 kWh battery units, allowing for a total capacity of 54 kWh. However, these expansion units are still being developed and are yet to be available for purchase.

AC Coupling 

With the AC coupling feature, the Tesla Powerwall 3 can easily be connected to homes with existing solar power systems and paired with the current inverter setup via a Tesla Gateway. 

Integration With EV Charging Systems

The Tesla Powerwall 3 offers the added benefit of EV charger integration, making it ideal for households that use one or more electric vehicles. This feature reduces the need for extra breaker slots, potentially avoiding the need for an expensive service upgrade.

Tesla Powerwall 3 Pricing Information

While we expected the new Tesla Powerwall 3 to be priced higher than the existing Powerwall 2, it is listed at $8,400, matching the Powerwall 2’s discounted price. This also includes the $1,100 backup gateway and doesn’t take into account state-specific incentives and rebates, making the Powerwall 3 an extremely attractive purchase. 

The Tesla Powerwall 3 qualifies for a 30% federal income tax credit up to $1,000 in Arizona. In Nevada, NV Energy is offering $1,500 for the installation of a qualified energy storage system, while most utility service providers across Texas offer a $500 discount on the installation of a Tesla Powerwall.

Exploring the Evolution: Tesla Powerwall 2 vs. Powerwall 3

When comparing the new Tesla Powerwall 3 with the existing Powerwall 2, the most obvious difference between the two is that the newer unit is a fully incorporated or hybrid system that comes with its own solar inverter. Conversely, the Powerwall 2 requires to be paired with an external solar inverter during installation. The Powerwall 3 can thus be incorporated into most existing solar power setups, including those with microinverters. Other advantages of the Tesla Powerwall 3 over the Powerwall 2 include a higher continuous power rating, higher peak power output, and improved max surge LRA.
