HAVE you ever sat at home in the cool of your air-conditioner, drinking a nice cold drink you just grabbed from the fridge and wondered what you would do if there was suddenly a blackout? Well, this is a problem of the past withTesla’s new 14kw/h Powerwall 2 home battery, which is available to pre-order now at Future NRG.

Among many other benefits, this incredibly useful piece of smart technology can provide enough storage to effectively get you off the grid and provide blackout protection through storage of enough back up energy to power the whole house until the grid comes back on.

Directors, Shaun Gash and Graeme Lamb said, “Tesla Powerwall 2 has a compact and safe design and it does what no other battery can do.

“It connects to your solar panels and stores energy for when it is needed.

“There will be two versions available. One that will work with a hybrid solar inverter and one that will work with an AC solar system, meaning there is a solution for everyone.

“People are under the impression that if they have solar panels, they are protected from the grid when there is a blackout, but that is not the case. By law, the solar grid connection will need to be shut off while the cause of the blackout is determined and repaired.

“But with Tesla Powerwall 2, you won’t need to worry about blackouts ever again.

“This is a game changer.”
