The ever impressive Tesla. It has an outstanding performance rating and can run for 20 years on its original battery. Although maintenance expenses are comparable with BMW, the car runs on electricity, at a cost of less than $700 per year. The residential power source for Tesla is the challenge. How do you power your electric vehicle and your home with consistent, clean, efficient energy?
The Power Wall, manufactured by Tesla, is hard to get. Tesla hasn’t been able to meet the supply versus demand issue surrounding their brand power source. Currently, the waitlist is 2 or more years for the Power Wall in certain areas.
“When compared to other solutions available on the market Tesla is one of the weak offerings. Small battery small output.” -Aaron Flint, Acoustic Architects.
The Tesla Power Wall battery is also a very limited solution for a larger home, especially an automated home. When the power goes out as frequently as it does in Florida, the Power Wall won’t be able to keep the home network and all of the technology within running. The homeowner would have to choose a few areas of the home to power, and let the rest go off-line.
A generator is supposed to take over as the energy supply to a structure during an electrical grid outage. Several things can go wrong here. Firstly, the generator may not be strong enough to supply enough power. And secondly, the generator could fail due to improper testing throughout the year. Why not power your home and your beloved electrical car in a more reliable way?
Power without downtime not only provides optimal energy for your Tesla and other smart home products, but it also ensures constant security for your residence and everything in it. The proper function of security cameras, gates, and doors is key to a flawless smart home experience.
The Smart Solution
The ultimate triad of solar, battery, generator power is now available for your smart home. Not only is it a clean solution, but it is also more energy efficient and reliable. A solar source of power gathers energy from sunlight to be stored in the battery. When the power goes out due to a storm or other event, the generator kicks on using battery power. These systems not only provide seamlessly consistent energy for your home, but they are also a perfect source for your Tesla. Because your smart home is connected to a constant source of energy, so is your electric car. In most cases, the resident is completely unaware that they’ve lost power from the grid at all.
