Using reliable, renewable energy to power your home can be easier than you think with the state-of-the-art Bradford Solar ChargePack, which includes Tesla Powerwall with backup.

The Bradford Solar ChargePack, including Tesla Powerwall allows you to store your solar energy away until you’re ready to use it — meaning you’ll always have electricity in your home and you’ll have the reassurance that your home will have power during unreliable times such as power outages.

As the first builder in Geelong to offer Tesla Powerwall as part of our standard inclusions, every Hamlan^ home now has this feature. And it not only saves homeowners thousands of dollars each year but provides more efficient sustainable energy that’s ultimately better for the environment.

How does it work?

The sun’s energy is captured by state-of-the-art Bradford solar panels on your roof. An intelligent inverter then converts the energy into electricity to power the home.

The solar system that comes standard with a Hamlan home is a 5.18kW system, which includes 14 solar panels, solar edge inverter and the Tesla Powerwall with backup.

“The energy you generate but don’t use during the day is now efficiently stored in your Tesla Powerwall, which holds enough power to run an average house in the evening,” Bradford Energy says.

“In the past, the solar energy you didn’t use would go back into the grid, only to be sold back to you at night at a much higher price.”

What is Tesla Powerwall?

Tesla Powerwall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery system that is charged by the electricity generated from your Bradford solar panels.

It can be monitored from any smart device with the Tesla app, allowing you to manage your energy, including utilising time based monitoring which allows you to charge Powerwall during non-peak times, therefore the battery can use the cheapest electricity to charge itself. The sleek unit mounts on a wall in the garage and is connected to the grid to export excess energy. During a power outage, you can then use the energy stored in your battery to keep running your lights and some appliances.

It’s one of the most affordable home batteries in terms of cost per kWh. According to Bradford Energy. If your electricity costs vary during the day, Powerwall can perform load shifting to maximise your savings. When electricity is expensive, Powerwall uses stored low cost energy to power your home.

Powerwall is also touch-safe; has a water-resistant and dustproof enclosure has a 13.5kWh capacity that covers an average families’ power requirements during the evening, and it has a liquid thermal control system that regulates its internal temperature to maximise battery performance in any climate. Powerwall also comes with a 10-year warranty.

Going beyond solar energy

In addition to having the Bradford Solar ChargePack with Tesla Powerwall, Hamlan offers other options to help you create an energy efficient home that reduces your carbon footprint.

When building a home, you have the chance to go completely electric and avoid gas, which is a fossil fuel. Options include, installing induction cooktops, and opting for reverse cycle air conditioners over gas ducted heating. Generally when building a new home, you will also buy new white goods — so making sure you select energy efficient electric appliances will also make a big difference in your home’s overall energy performance.

Double-glazed windows also come standard with a Hamlan home. Double-glazed windows can keep energy consumption down by helping your home retain any heating or cooling you might be using.

And finally, design plays a big part in your home’s energy efficiency. Hamlan’s home designs are architecturally designed, flexible floorplans that can be orientated to take advantage of the northern sun. The benefit of this is a home built to maximise solar heat gain in certain areas of the home — this means you can create a home that, depending on where the sun hits it, is naturally warmed in winter, and is shaded in summer.

In summary

Hamlan is known for building functional, beautifully finished homes. With a Bradford Solar ChargePack, including Tesla Powerwall, you can also create a greener home for you and your family.

The solar system that comes standard with a Hamlan home is a 5.18kW system, which includes 14 solar panels, solar edge inverter and the Tesla Powerwall with backup.

“The energy you generate but don’t use during the day is now efficiently stored in your Tesla Powerwall, which holds enough power to run an average house in the evening,” Bradford Energy says.
