Tesla has unveiled its Powerwall 3, a significant upgrade to its home battery system, capable of delivering peak power of approximately 30kW.

This enhancement allows Powerwall 3 to support high-energy appliances such as dryers and air-conditioners, making it sufficient for the energy needs of most homes with just a single unit. According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the ability to handle such peak power levels is what sets the Powerwall 3 apart in the market.

On Friday, Tesla said Powerwall 3 is now available for purchase in the United States, marking a new era in home energy solutions. The device offers 11.5 kW of power, capable of backing up most homes independently. It features a fully integrated solar inverter and DC-coupled battery expansion units, facilitating simple and cost-effective installations.

Designed to endure extreme weather conditions, the Powerwall 3 comes with a durable exterior, equipped with Storm Watch and Heat Mode for enhanced protection.

One of the standout features of the Powerwall 3 is its integrated solar inverter, which supports larger system sizes and offers installation flexibility. It can be seamlessly integrated with new solar systems, added to existing ones, or installed independently, mirroring the versatility of its predecessor, the Powerwall 2. The product is designed for easy expansion, catering to both current and future energy needs of households.

Tesla emphasizes the Powerwall 3’s role in Virtual Power Plant participation, maximizing the value of stored energy for homeowners. The system’s design prioritizes ease of installation and scalability, with a stackable configuration that minimizes the visibility of wires and vents, ensuring compatibility with various home aesthetics and solar setups. The all-in-one construction is not only flood and weather-resistant but also offers flexible mounting options for both indoor and outdoor setups.

Currently available in the continental U.S., Tesla plans to extend the availability of the Powerwall 3 to Hawaii and Puerto Rico later in the year.
