Tesla could build Powerwall battery storage systems in India
Tesla’s Powerwall is primarily aimed at domestic and light commercial use.
According to media reports, Tesla has plans to manufacture and sell the Powerwall battery storage system in India.
Tesla executives recently held a meeting with government officials in New Delhi. Reports suggest that Tesla is seeking incentives to set up a factory to build its Powerwall energy storage system that can store power from solar panels or the grid for use at night or during power outages.
Powerwall is a rechargeable home battery system that can be installed with solar. It comes in two variants: Powerwall offering a backup of 5.8 kW and Powerwall+ with a backup of 7 kW for the 5.8 kVA version and 9.6 kW for the 7.6 kVA version. Both systems have a storage capacity of 13.5 kWh.
Tesla’s Powerwall is primarily aimed at domestic and light commercial use. However, it has been reported that Tesla might consider developing higher-capacity systems for industrial purposes if India approves its proposal.
India has reportedly declined Tesla’s request for incentives. Another alternative would be to offer subsidies to customers. However, this proposal too is under review.
