How does the Tesla Backup Gateway 2 work?

The new Tesla Backup Gateway 2 supports the Tesla Powerwall 2, acting as a form of communication between the Powerwall and solar panel PV systems. It controls factors such as solar power consumption, time management, and can detect power outages and provide an endless supply of power directly from the grid.

Having just a solar PV system installed in your home or business isn’t going to give you clean and green energy 24/7. Solely relying on solar panels, especially when living in a country where sunny weather isn’t present all year, may not provide you with the complete solution you are looking for.

That’s where the Tesla Powerwall Backup Gateway 2 benefits can come into play. The Tesla Powerwall 2 stores the suns energy from your solar PV system, ready for it to be used at times of low sun and high cloud cover, giving you power whatever the weather!
