Tesla’s planning to upgrade Powerwall with Powerwall 3 with an upgraded 9.6 kW peak output (from 7 kW) and the same 13.5 kWh battery capacity. This new upgrade also comes with a new inverter that sits above the Powerwall 3 to provide a new look compared to the original Powerwall.

This integrated solar battery system stores and captures solar energy. Created with a new integrated design and streamlined installation, Tesla’s Powerwall 3 can power an entire home from a small, compact unit. It even includes smart features to tailor its functioning to suit your renewable energy needs. The primary difference between Powerwall and Powerwall 3 is that the updated version can be wall- or floor-mounted. It’s also more flexible and easier to install in your home.
