Tesla Powerwall - South African prices revealed

The wait is over! Rubicon, the authorised Tesla Energy reseller, has revealed the the final recommended retail prices of the Tesla Powerwall kits.

The kits are only allowed to be sold and fitted by Tesla-approved installers, the first authorised group in South Africa are set to receive training in the coming weeks. 

Based on the Tesla Powerwall home battery and StorEdge inverter system from SolarEdge, these kits will allow for back-up energy in your home. 

It should also be noted that prices do remain subject to the Rand/Dollar exchange rate and excludes installation. 

Installation costs will vary from home to home, and Rubicon said an energy meter may also be required for installations which do not allow feedback into the grid.

The warranty length of the major components of the kits are as follows:

Tesla Powerwall: 10 years
SolarEdge inverter: 12 years
Solar Panels: 25 years

The various kits and their prices are as follows:

Kit 1 (RUB-TES) - A basic system for a home with existing solar installation, or as a back-up/ peak power system
Price: R116,000 excl. VAT
