In mid-January this year, Tesla introduced a new product that has become a logical and irreplaceable addition to the product line from its Tesla Energy division: Tesla Solar Inverter. The first installations using the new equipment have already begun.
An inverter is a power electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). Previously, Tesla used equipment from other manufacturers, but now the situation has changed, and the company can provide a full range of products that will help make a customer's home independent from the grid and more sustainable.
Tesla Solar Inverter complements Tesla's home solar system, converting DC power from solar to AC power for home consumption. In this way, you can use the energy of the sun to meet your needs. It is compatible with the company's products, such as Solar Roof and traditional solar panels.
Clients use the Tesla App to easily manage their home solar system, and monitor energy consumption. The Tesla Solar Inverter is designed with Tesla's home solar system features in mind, making it the perfect addition to it.
Tesla has already started installing solar systems using Tesla Inverter. One such unit was installed in San Diego, California. The client ordered a system consisting of 30 solar panels with a size of 10.20 kW. The estimated year 1 production is 14680 kWh, while the estimated year 1 Offset is 194%. The system is complemented by Tesla Inverter for smoother use.
