Rubicon, an authorised Tesla Energy reseller, has revealed the four Tesla Powerwall kits that will go on sale in South Africa.

The systems will be on sale through Tesla-approved installers, the first of which will receive training in the coming weeks.

While Rubicon could not reveal pricing for the kits, it did say it will be similar to the Australian market.

The Powerwall home battery systems are expected to launch at around $3,600 – $4,000, depending on external factors.

Their local rand price will be influenced by the currency’s performance against the US dollar.

The kits going on sale in South Africa include a Tesla Powerwall battery and a StorEdge inverter system from SolarEdge.


Kit 1: Part Number RUB-TES

This is a basic system for an existing solar installation, or as a backup or peak power system.

It can be installed with or without solar panels and can charge the battery from the grid when electricity is cheaper.
