CAN I USE A TESLA POWERWALL WITHOUT ANY SOLAR PANELS?

Certainly! Here’s how it works: when you have Tesla Powerwall backup battery installed in your home WITH solar panels, your solar array will power your home during the day and direct surplus energy to Tesla Powerwall. Tesla Powerwall will discharge when it determines energy is needed most, such as when the sun goes down at night, or during severe weather.

Without solar panels, Tesla Powerwall will charge during times of the day when energy rates are low. This provides you with a surplus of the most affordable energy provided by your power company. Then, the unit will discharge during peak rate hours — so you’re not paying peak energy rates, but instead are using the low-cost energy your Tesla Powerwall stored hours earlier.

WHAT IS NET METERING?

Net Metering is a method of billing for solar energy system owners that often results in substantially lower energy bills and credits with your energy company. Your solar energy system will typically generate more energy during the day than your home will use. Net Metering allows you to sell energy that you don’t use back to the grid, giving you a credit for the extra energy you’re producing. This results in lower future electric bills.

NOTICE: As of 2018 WAPA has discontinued the Net Metering Program.

I HAVE A HUGE COMMERCIAL BUILDING/ HAVE A VERY SMALL HOME. CAN PROSOLAR STILL HELP ME SWITCH TO SOLAR?

Definitely! For ProSolar Florida, no project is too small or too large!

Whether you have a huge warehouse you want to power with solar energy, or you’re looking to make your small 2 bedroom home energy independent — or anything in between! — we can help make that happen.

Some of our previous clients include residential homes of all sizes, hotels, athletic complexes, churches, and more. Check out some of our past projects to see what we could do for your property.

DO YOU INSTALL SYSTEMS IN RESIDENTIAL OR COMMERCIAL STRUCTURES?

Yes! We install solar energy arrays to both residential AND commercial structures. The benefits of solar energy aren’t limited to strictly homeowners or business owners — both can benefit from increased property value, lower monthly energy bills, and energy security from clean, affordable, renewable energy.

In addition, both homeowners and business owners will appreciate the reliability that comes with solar energy when coupled with a backup battery like Tesla Powerwall. This setup helps homeowners seamlessly transition from solar panels to backup battery on cloudy days, at night, and during or after bad storms.

Structures that don’t have solar panels but employ Tesla Powerwall can also count on low-cost energy during grid outages. This is especially meaningful for businesses that demand constant electricity, such as those in the healthcare or food service industries, where power outages can put lives in danger or cost thousands of dollars in inventory loss.

WHAT KIND OF MAINTENCE IS REQUIRED ON PROSOLAR SOLAR ENERGY ARRAYS?

The great news about solar energy is that a system requires little to no maintenance once it’s installed. Our solar arrays come with a 25 year warranty and are constructed of the highest quality aluminum, stainless steel, UV resistant plastic, and glass to ensure durability for years to come.

Most solar arrays will be just fine with an occasional rain shower or gentle hose rinse to keep them clean and free of debris. If any problems arise, ProSolar Florida will be there to assist. But our warranty and craftsmanship will give you peace of mind in knowing that once your array is installed, it’s there to stay and operate smoothly for the long haul.
