    Our solar project with Swell was well designed and installed without problems. The communication with the team was regular and helpful from the beginning and throughout the project. I would highly recommend them for your project.

  • "Tying it all together"

    Reviewed Oct 01, 2021

    I've had solar on my roof for 15 years and my wife and I have owned Teslas, starting 9 years ago with the model S. X, 3, and Y followed. I carefully tracked solar production and measured it against house use for years, but in May 2021 I finally tied it altogether with 2 Powerwalls, the process closely administered by Swell Energy. They essentially did all the paper work and the subs they sent to my home were just perfect. Knowledgeable, transparent and helpful to to a T.

    The fundamental purpose to the battery install was to assure house power during a blackout--which it does, but what I was not prepared for was the beautiful integration of the Tesla car app with the Powerwalls. The graphics are filled with beautiful and technically helpful data, and the playoff of cars to solar was a terrific hint of things to come.

    Generally in the morning the solar first goes for house usage, and then all the excess goes to refill the batteries (they had been used during the night to power the home). Once the batteries are full, the excess goes to the grid.

    I can avoid those grid flow times to soak up the solar by plugging in an EV and setting the charging amps to just offset what had been going to the grid--this means less car charging at night, and avoids sending power to the grid exactly when they don't need it--mid day when California solar power swamps the grid.

    Of course this process is but a game--what's really to come will be to control car and house batteries in the same system, IN BOTH DIRECTIONS. My garage contains 178 kWh of battery storage--27 in the Powerwalls and 150 in the cars.

    The opportunity to use the car batteries in two directions (cars and house) is yet to come. Tesla, where are you?
