Tesla Wall

Recommended Posts

Visited the small Home Show in Tallahassee today and saw an example of what the Tesla Wall looks like. Much smaller than I expected. Asked the people there about alternative mounting and was told it could only be mounted vertical as far as they know. Showed me some photos of an instillation in the Bahama's . The example they had didn't have batteries inside and it was the first version. They are anxiously waiting for the second version with double the capacity, but of course double the cost too. Their quote was at the recently forecasted $100 per KW. It just won't work for me.

45.3" long x 29.7" wide x 6.1" thick

 

I'm thinking lay down on roof horizontal or hang vertical on back cap. Prices will come down over time. 14kw at $5,500.

I wouldn't want to hang 264# off my back cap. Most RV roofs are rated for a maximum weight rating of 300# static load, 264# bouncing up/down while driving multiplies the inertial load on the roof.

I have a Teton 5ver. There is a picture in one of the brochures that shows about 65 employees standing on the roof. They advertised that their roof was plenty strong and not like other roofs. 264 lbs spread out over the surface area shouldn't be a problem, for me at least.

 

If I were to do the back cap, I would build a frame and tie it down to the frame.

 

This is all theoretical though, whether or not the powerwall is road bounce rated is TBD.
