Meet the Pfitzners.
They’re the first Australian family to have a Tesla Powerwall unit installed on their house.
It’s the first Australian residential install of the home battery technology from Elon Musk’s company, which allows users to store solar power and drastically reduce their energy bills.
The Powerwall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (the same type of battery used in Tesla’s Model S electric car) that is designed to store energy — whether that be from solar power, or load shifting to reduce your electricity bill if you’re still connected to the traditional grid.
The installation at the Pfitzner house in Kellyville Ridge was carried out by Natural Solar.
