Arden Homes Now Offering Solar Packs As Standard On All New Homes
Here’s an amazing fact: now you can run your home from solar power even after the sun has gone down! That’s if you have a Tesla Powerwall installed, which is now a standard inclusion if your chose to build your house with Arden Homes.
Installing solar power panels on a house roof can significantly reduce your overall electricity costs…but normally only during the daytime. Arden Homes is now committing to including a Bradford Solar ChargePack with Tesla Powerwall as a standard inclusion in all their new homes. This means that not only do you get the solar panels, you also have a way to actually save up that energy to use later when you are actually ready.
What the Tesla Powerwall does is to store the solar energy from the Bradford panels in its rechargeable lithium-ion battery. So rather than sending your excess solar energy back to the grid, you can now store it to use after the sun sets – the Tesla Powerwall claims to store enough to run an average household through an entire night.
A 5kW Bradford Solar ChargePack that includes solar panels and a Tesla Powerwall 2 would mean that the average Australian household of 4 people could be 90% self sufficient. A 6kW Bradford Solar ChargePack with a Tesla Powerwall 2 would mean that the average Australian family would be almost totally independent of the electricity grid. That means a saving of up to $2,500 on average every year.
And if you’re worried that 13.5kWh Tesla Powerwall isn’t enough storage capacity, you can always opt to install an additional Powerwall to increase your options. Plus you can also upgrade your Powerwall to have it act as a backup to protect your electrical devices during unexpected power outages.
Because the Tesla Powerwall talks to a cloud, you can use any smart device to check in and see just how much energy and money you are saving at any time, day or night.
