Three Batteries That Are BETTER Than The Tesla Powerwall

Welcome to the Solar Energy Channel, where you’ll get an honest inside look at all things solar. In this video, we’re gonna talk about three great alternatives to the Tesla Powerwall. I’m Warren and I’m Larry.

It’s a popular product, people associated with Tesla and the company and the brand, but there are great alternatives to the Powerwall that are out there.

Yes, and there’s three in particular that we offer. One is the SolarEdge Energy Hub with an LG Chem battery. Another one is, is the SMA battery inverter with an LG Chem battery. And then a third option is the Enphase Encharge system.

Great, let’s dive into that first option, the LG Chem battery with the SolarEdge storage option. How is that better than a Powerwall? – Yeah so one of the really neat things about the SolarEdge Energy Hub system with the LG Chem battery is that you can add up to three inverters to one backup system, and each inverter can have up to two batteries.

So you can end up with a lot of storage, not only that, but you can also integrate an EV charger as well, which is another neat feature with the energy hub. So now let’s talk about Larry, SMA with the same LG Chem battery and how that compares to a Tesla Powerwall.

Yeah, so SMA is a AC coupled system, which means that you can add it onto an existing system. That’s the great part about the SMA inverter setup. It’s a great add on solution, which is really their strength.

They don’t have the option to integrate with the EV charger, but it’s a great add on solution. – Great, so you could decide to do that at any time. You can put in solar now and add on an SMA battery with the LG Chem a year from now or six months from now.

Correct, yup. – And then finally, let’s talk about the Enphase system. – Enphase also has a great system and it’s similar and set up to the SolarEdge Energy Hub, in that you can add multiple batteries.

You can set it up to backup your whole house. If you’d like to do that. Enphase can be a little bit more expensive, than SolarEdge Energy Hub, but another great technology. Great, and overall, the SolarEdge with the SMA with the LG Chem batteries or the Enphase, how do they compare price-wise to the Powerwall? Yeah, great questions.

So they’re all gonna be a little bit more expensive than the Powerwall overall, but they’re also more robust and have additional features that you can build out to your system. Great. – So in summary, the Tesla Powerwall is a great brand.

It’s a great product, but there’s three alternatives that we think are just as good or better to the Tesla Powerwall. That’s the SolarEdge Energy Hub Inverter with an LG Chem battery, an SMA battery inverter with that same LG Chem battery, or the Enphase Encharge system.

And the nice thing about the SMA battery inverter is that you can install it either during your solar installation or at any time after. So if you have an existing system, and you’re thinking about adding on batteries, that may be a great solution for you.
