Tesla launches Powerwall 3 sales in the US

Tesla launched its most powerful Powerwall yet, the Powerwall 3, in the United States this week.

The newly redesigned Powerwall 3 features:

  • 13.5 kWh capacity
  • 11.5 kW of continuous on-grid power
  • A fully-integrated solar-to-grid converter with an efficiency of 97.5%
  • DC-coupled battery expansion units for low-cost installs
  • Durable exterior with Storm Watch and Heat Mode for extreme weather protection
  • Virtual Power Plant participation
  • Stackability with up to four units

This new design will allow users to add new solar options, connect to existing solar panels or simply install it on its own. Most importantly, the Powerwall 3 can power an entire home in most circumstances. Per Elon Musk, the Powerwall 3 will be able to handle peak power, which means the Powerwall could even power dryers and air conditioners with ease.

Compared to the Powerwall + and Powerwall 2, the Powerwall 3 is certainly an improvement, especially in the on-grid power department.  The Powerwall 3 is a 130% increase in on-grid power capacity compared to the previous generation Powerwall 2.

The new Powerwall 3, with installation by Tesla, will cost around US$10,300 after federal tax incentives or around US$14,700 without those federal incentives, per the Tesla site.

There is no word on when the Powerwall 3 will appear in other markets, such as Canada. as of yet.
