Tim is in da house with a powerwall
#1
Hello

I aim collecting and testing cells for 2 years now. And it is time to finally build my powerwall.

The idea is that my plug in hybrid car can charge fully from the sun.

Here in my country grid tied solar panels are taxed idiotically so your pay back time is 20 years.

Hence the idea for a powerwall!

Same here Tongue  !!!!

Still in the 'testing phase' of my cells. Due date for my project is next spring. By then I should have about 10kWh which makes it interesting to start of with. That means I would be able to run nearly everything of the powerwall during 'sunny months'.
Only thing I still need to buy are the solar panels. I think that 3000Wp should be sufficient to charge a battery of 10kWh and maybe use some power during the day as well.

Happy building !!
