Having a home equipped with a solar power system means you avoid having to buy all your power from the utility. The more energy your home makes, the less energy you need to buy from the utility. Typically you buy energy from your utility at lower rates during low-peak times and higher rates during high-peak times. By producing your own energy, you offset the energy you need and this will help avoid going into the higher tier rates
The energy your home makes throughout the day will be used first. Any additional power you need will come from the utility. But when your home produces more power than you are using, it gets sent back onto the utility grid and you earn credit for that power.
Most Ready Home Energy solar homes come equipped with a level-2 car charging station. Depending on your vehicle, you will need either a cable or an adapter.
With a Tesla charging unit, you can charge at home, anytime. Tesla Wall Connectors provide a full charge overnight for every homeowner. With customized power settings, the lightweight design allows for versatile indoor/outdoor use, including a range of electrical systems and mounting options. Monitor your charge with the Tesla app and receive notifications when complete. Wi-Fi connectivity enables over-the-air firmware updates and remote service if necessary. Tesla Wall Connector offers the best home charging experience for any Tesla owner.

Battery storage and product offerings continue to grow.
A self-powered home combines solar energy and Powerwall to independently power your home day and night. During the day, solar panels may produce more energy than your home uses. Powerwall stores that excess solar energy and makes it available on demand, even after the sun has set.
The main advantage of having battery storage is that a Powerwall can detect an outage, disconnect from the grid, and automatically restore power to your home in a fraction of a second. You will not even notice that the power went out. Your lights and appliances will continue to run without interruption. If you have solar and a Powerwall, then solar energy will continue to power your home and recharge Powerwall. Without a Powerwall, solar will shut down during an outage.
