Tesla Powerwall in Missouri and Illinois

The growing number of homeowners seeking a Tesla Powerwall in Missouri and Illinois is due to the rising cost of energy. Pairing a battery with solar allows you to self-consume more of the solar energy your array produces. Additionally, it can protect against power outages and help save you money on your utility bills by stabilizing energy costs.

StraightUp Solar is a Tesla Powerwall certified installer. Popular for its backup capabilities and minimalist design, the Tesla Powerwall is one of two solar + storage options we offer. We provide a custom assessment of your home and energy needs to find the right solar battery storage solution for your family.

What is a
Solar Battery?

A solar battery stores the excess electricity generated by the solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, which narnesses the power of the sun. Solar batteries utilize PV panels – also called solar panels –  to capture sunlight and convert it into DC (direct current) electricity. 

The stored energy is then used to power your home or business. A solar battery is an alternative that can help reduce your electricity bills by supplementing or replacing a portion of the electrical energy you normally purchase from the utility company.

Why Choose a
Tesla Powerwall?

The Tesla brand is known for innovation. What makes the Powerwall stand out is its proven track record and outstanding technology. Tesla energy storage allows you to maximize your array to its fullest potential, making it ideal for those looking to reduce their reliance on grid energy and gain more control over their electricity bills.

How Does it Work?

Your solar array absorbs the sun’s natural energy and converts it into usable energy for your home. Without a battery, the excess energy passes through to the grid. When a battery like the Tesla Powerwall pairs with your solar array, the excess energy from the sun fills your battery during the day so your family can put it to use after the sun goes down.

As a result, you use the sun’s energy for most of the day, reducing the total energy pulled from the grid and charged by your utility. The Powerwall connects to your system via a Tesla Gateway. This device monitors power in and out of the batteries.

Storm Mode

When a Powerwall receives notifications from the National Weather Service, the battery automatically enters Storm Mode to ensure it’s fully charged before severe weather arrives. The Tesla battery backup provides a seamless transition during an outage.

It also allows you to set “time-of-use” settings and prioritize when the stored electricity is used. As a result, you can always access the energy you need, even when the grid is offline.
