RFI is excited to announce that through collaboration with Tesla Energy they have become an Authorised Reseller of the Tesla Powerwall.
“A battery storage revolution is coming and it will transform the energy landscape forever”, stated Scott Magee, CEO of RFI. “The most exciting thing about the Tesla Powerwall is that it is making the entire energy sector rethink the way electricity is generated and consumed”.
This collaboration with Tesla Energy means the Tesla Powerwall will be available from RFI: Australia’s leading distributor of renewable energy solutions. With rising electricity bills a continued driver, high solar adoption around the nation and Australians seeking a more sustainable future, energy storage has truly arrived. “Energy Storage isn’t a future prospect, it is here, it is now and the push is on.”
This is backed by the initial demand experienced by RFI’s nationwide installer network. “We’re seeing demand in the community well beyond our initial expectations, with installers swamped with phone calls about the Powerwall every day,” stated Scott Magee.
When Tesla Energy created the product, they worked on a simple design ethos: to be ‘beautifully functional’. This product epitomises that ethos: 6.4KWh to suit the storage needs of an average Australian household at night, yet aesthetically designed to be an attractive addition to the home.
The Tesla Powerwall benefits for consumers are threefold. Home owners can harness the benefits of rooftop solar by using the storage generated at night; they can use as a backup during power outages and also store electricity from the grid when electricity rates are low.
“The electricity environment will completely change in Australia with control finally coming back to the consumer. Coupled with solar feed-in tariffs being slashed around the country the momentum for storage will only grow,” stated Scott Magee.
RFI has a national presence across Australia with an extremely experienced solar installer network in every state and region of the country. The strategic distribution that RFI is able to achieve allows Tesla Energy to reach a diverse installer base covering not only metro areas, but regional Australia. RFI also offers a fully integrated solution by packaging the Tesla Powerwall solution with world-leading solar panel, inverter and monitoring products.

What is the Powerwall?
Tesla Powerwall is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery designed to store energy at a residential level for load shifting, backup power and self-consumption of solar power generation. Powerwall consists of Tesla’s lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system and software that receives dispatch commands from a solar inverter. The unit mounts seamlessly on a wall and is integrated with the local grid to harness excess power and give customers the flexibility to draw energy from their own reserve.
