Alternate Energy Named a Tesla Energy Authorized Reseller

Posted on June 22, 2016

Alternate Energy is proud to announce that it is one of the first Tesla Energy Authorized Resellers in Hawaii. AEI will offer Tesla Powerwall to new and current PV system owners on Oahu and Maui. 

Tesla Powerwall, a rechargeable battery meant for residential use, stores energy captured through solar panels, offering the following benefits:

  • Stores surplus energy to be used when the sun isn’t shining, resulting in additional cost savings
  • Powers your home independent of the utility grid
  • Provides emergency backup power during outages
  • The Tesla Powerwall is charged with electricity generated from solar panels. This energy is then sent to an inverter that converts the energy into the current used by lights, appliances, and devices. From the inverter, the current is sent to the home’s electrical panel for use.

Tesla Powerwall includes a state of the art lithium-ion battery, liquid thermal control system, and software that receives commands from a solar inverter, as well as a 10-year warranty. The sleek, streamlined unit can be mounted indoors or outdoors.

“Battery storage is the future of energy efficient homes and Tesla Energy is an industry leader. We’re proud to offer this state of the art product to our customers on Oahu and Maui,” said Mike Ito, Director of Marketing, AEI.

New PV customers can utilize Tesla Powerwall technology as part of AEI’s Home Energy Storage System (HESS), a combination of home battery technology and Mitsubishi Electric solar panels.
