A growing powerwall in Germany
#1
Hello,
For about a year I collect used 18650 cells to build a powerwall for our house.
We have a 6kW photovoltaic system and a lot of electricity, for which we only get 12 cents per kWh. When the sun is gone, we buy expensive electricity for 25 cents / kWh.

Now I had enough cells together and our battery is at the start, together with a 3000W inverter, he supplies almost our entire house with electricity, as long as the solar system supplies none.
I started with two rows.

Now I have four rows together and Batrium running.

There is room on the wall for a total of 16 rows, one row has about 1.1 kilowatt hours

I took the concept from Oliver and his ThreadI thank him for that!

Greetings from Jens

I also wanted to build the powerwall next to the fireplace in the living room but my wife was against it.

I also think in case of fire, the basement is the better place. Everything around it is made of stone or concrete.

congrats, love your design Big Grin Big Grin . Looks very nice and clean, hopefully the wall is not wet, look like you screwed your busbars directly into it.... I remember I had a problem with humidity on my connection board where all battery banks come together. The screws where rotten after 4 months while the wall was almost completely dried out because of the current Smile . After theat, I screwed the vusbars to a thick piece of wood. Fortunately, I'm using plastic holders for the busbars of my powerwall.

Cells tested: 6.566 (overall cap.: 13.209 Ah, average cap.: 2.012 mAh)
Cells in production: 3.500 (overall cap.: 7.350 Ah, average cap.: 2.100 mAh)
Powerwall setup: 7s500p, 1.050 Ah, 27 kWh

Hello Oliver,
for the parall busbars I took cable pipe holders from the hardware store.
I think you have the same. Rolleyes

All other cables and connection points are also separated from the wall.

But good to know how to drain a wall with a powerwall. Big Grin
