Home battery energy storage
Pair a home battery with your solar panels for complete control over your energy
With home batteries, Energy Independence is a reality
When you add a home battery to your solar system, you extend your solar capability in ways that give you more control over your energy, and can reduce your energy costs even more. The benefits of a home battery are:
- It gives you backup power in case of grid outages or planned blackouts.
- It extends the energy capability of your solar panels by charging with free solar energy during the daytime, which you can then use at night, when electricity rates are highest and your solar panels can’t generate power.
- It enables you to avoid the unfair time-of-use billing rates now used by utility companies.
- It helps you further reduce your dependence on the grid, and even go fully off-grid, if that’s your ultimate goal.

Our home battery product: Tesla Powerwall
We supply and fit the class-leading Tesla Powerwall home battery. Powerwall has built in intelligence that can be tailored to fit your lifestyle plus anticipate and react to certain situations. With its built-in battery inverter, Powerwall is compact and easy to install.
Powerwall installation can be designed for partial backup (to cover essential electricity needs in a power outage) or full backup. When you work with us, our professionals will help you decide on the setup that best suits your needs and goals.
Intelligent power cycling
Powerwall charges from your solar panels during the daytime. You then use the stored battery power in the evening when your solar panels can’t generate power. This means you can avoid high time-of-use electricity rates.
If there’s a power outage, your solar panels can continue to power your home and charge your Powerwall. With the Storm Watch feature, Powerwall can communicate with the National Weather Service and prioritize charging in anticipation of severe weather.
Powerwall comes with full monitoring, metering and management for the system that shows current status and past use. And it’s all accessible on your phone from a dedicated app.
What you get
A Powerwall installation includes at least one Powerwall, a Tesla Gateway and electrical hardware. Baker Home Energy will recommend the number of Powerwalls you need based on your historical energy consumption, anticipated future usage and energy goals.
Where it’s installed
Powerwall is a compact size (26 in x 16 in x 6 in) and is typically located in a garage or on the side of the house that’s tucked away.
It needs to be out of direct sunlight and located somewhere not exposed to temperature extremes (its operating range is -4°F to 122°F).
Baker Home Energy is a certified Tesla Powerwall Installer, which means our technicians are trained to find the most suitable installation locations on your property and follow the strictest quality standards for the best experience from your home battery.
