Tesla brings its household storage battery to Japan

By Ramla Soni

Tesla’s home power storage battery, Powerwall, is set to make its debut in Asia

Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) is to start the installation of its household storage battery, Powerwall, in Japan next spring, the company has stated.

With solar power systems and Powerwall, users will be able to supply their homes and electric vehicles with renewable energy generated at home in a bid to reduce “dependence on power companies”, the American electric car maker said.

With a storage capacity of 13.5kWh, Powerwall can store about a day’s worth of electricity consumed by a four-person household, Powerwall will continue to send electricity in the event of a power failure (for example in the event of a typhoon or earthquake).

In addition, Powerwall can back up the entire distribution panel, so the outlets can be used in the home as usual during power outages.

The Tesla app will enable users to monitor the operating status of the Powerwall, how much electricity is being used in the home, and allow them to change the operation mode settings from anywhere.

Powerwall, which was launched by Tesla in 2015, operates in seven countries and is currently accepting reservations.
