Tesla will soon unveil Powerwall 3: a sleeker and more efficient home – Tesla Maison

Electrek has learned that Tesla is gearing up to launch their third-generation Powerwall 3 battery pack home battery pack. Since introducing their residential energy storage systems in 2015, each generation has seen incremental upgrades and advancements made.

Tesla Powerwall 3 Certification Process

Tesla recently filed certification applications with various electric utilities for Powerwall 3, signaling its imminent launch. While details regarding specifications and features for the product have yet to be made public, last year at a Tesla internal meeting three key upgrades were highlighted: easier installation and improved aesthetics.

Powerwall 3 should maintain the same 13.5kWh energy storage capacity that its predecessor does, Drive Tesla Canada reported that the new unit features a higher peak power backup of 15.4kW than 10kW for its predecessor. One significant change to Powerwall 3 battery pack includes switching from lithium NMC (Nickel-Manganese-Cobalt) cells to Prismatic LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) cells which should make its production cheaper overall.

What to Expect: Upgrades in Performance, Design and Installation

Powerwall 3 features the same design as Powerwall 2, yet in a smaller form factor. It should be about five inches shorter and 25% narrower. Constructed of die-cast aluminum for durability and employing weld sealing instead of adhesive sealant sealing, its exact dimensions and visuals have yet to be announced, but these changes suggest it will feature sleeker aesthetics than its predecessor.

Tesla has yet to disclose pricing of their upcoming Powerwall 3 product, although it is expected that it will soon become available. Some electric utilities have already certified it; others should follow shortly. Powerwall 2 can currently be purchased for $9,200 individually or three for $25.200 total; Tesla also recently resumed accepting orders without mandating solar panel purchases as prerequisites for ordering Powerwall 2.

Powerwall 3's anticipated upgrades in performance, design and installation should enable Tesla to reassert their dominance of the residential energy-storage market. Tesla plans on continuing to enhance their products to offer users user-friendly and efficient energy solutions.
