Melbourne Resident Believes Power wall 2 Will Result To Zero Power Bills

Tesla Power wall in Brisbane is currently a controversial topic because of its promised benefits and one man from Melbourne claimed that the Powerwall 2 by Tesla will result to a zero in your electric bill.

The first every Powerwall 2 was installed in Melbourne in a one-storey house with three bedrooms located in Coburg. The house is owned by Brendan Fahey along with Josephine, his wife. Aside from their existing solar panel systems, they decided to add the shiny new battery manufactured by Tesla. This decision was made after a calculation made by Brendan that shows that their energy bill will go down to about zero with the help of the Powerwall 2.

It was October of last year when Powerwall 2 was announced by Tesla. This is a new version after the original Powerwall which was released in 2015. The new version was an improved model of the original and different from the original in many ways. One of the major differences between the two is the existence of a built-in inverter while the original can use one through external mediums. The Powerwall 2 also has double the capacity compared to the original because it now has 14kWh from the previous 7kWh.

The average household in Australia is said to use about 16kWh of electricity everyday or a minimum of 13.5 kWh for those in Victoria. With the help of the Powerwall 2, Australians will be able to store enough energy that could power almost the entire day and will eventually lead to their electrical bill being zero. There is also a big chance for them to move into off grid.

This is the result of the calculations made by Brendan when he tried combining the Powerwall 2 to his current solar energy system. He said that he kept a record of their electrical usage from the first day of December last year and used the electricity generated by the solar energy to create a simple formula. He took into consideration the gains and losses and it turns out that the 14kWh will be enough to power his entire home and they won’t have to worry about paying their bills. With this news, it is expected that more consumers will be interested in Tesla Powerwall in Brisbane.
