How to Install Powerwall+

Powerwall+ is a rechargeable home battery which includes an integrated Tesla Solar Inverter. Tesla Solar Inverter converts energy produced from the customer's solar panels to be used by the home or stored in Powerwall+ for later use. Powerwall+ can be paired with Backup Switch or Backup Gateway 2. Depending on local codes, Powerwall+ can be installed indoors or outdoors, wall-mounted or floor-mounted. Powerwall+ is divided into solar and battery assemblies which are connected through a factory-installed wiring harness. All additional wiring enters the solar assembly through one of the three cable access holes on the side of the enclosure.
