Solar Energy

As part of our commitment to our local environment every* Hamlan home will now come complete with the Bradford Solar ChargePack including Tesla Powerwall, a customized solar-plus-battery solution. We are very proud to be the first builder in Geelong to offer the Tesla Powerwall with backup as part of our standard inclusions.

With Powerwall you can store solar energy generated during the day for use any time. During the day, the sun shines on your solar panels, charging your battery. At night, your home draws electricity from your battery, powering your home with day and night sustainable energy.

Tesla Powerwall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that charges using electricity from your Bradford solar panels. With cloud-based monitoring from any smart device, you will be able to monitor and manage your energy, including charging from the grid during off-peak. Now you have the power to run your home with a mix of free and low-cost energy, stored until you’re ready to use it.

The sleek looking unit mounts seamlessly on a wall in your garage and is connected to the grid to export excess energy, maximizing your opportunity for economic benefit.

Powerwall can also protect your home in a power outage keeping your lights, WI-FI, air conditioning, heating and refrigerator running.

Powerwall can provide a number of benefits:

  • Increasing self-consumption of solar power generation –Powerwall can store surplus solar energy during daylight hours and use that energy later when the sun is not shining.
  • Load shifting – Powerwall can charge during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharge during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher.
  • Back-up power – Assures power in the event of a grid outage.
