Tesla will soon train a number of South Africans to install the Powerwall, after which deliveries of its home battery system will begin locally.

SolarEdge, which provides an inverter system made specifically for the Powerwall, will train installers at the same time.

That’s the word from Rubicon, an authorised Tesla Energy distributor in South Africa.

The first training session will be held in Cape Town during the last week of February, with Johannesburg-based installers receiving training in the first week of March.

Four Tesla/SolarEdge solutions have been approved for sale in South Africa. All prices exclude VAT and installation:

  1. Tesla Powerwall and 5kW SolarEdge inverter (part no. RUB-TES) — R116,000.
  2. Tesla Powerwall, 5kW SolarEdge inverter, and 3kWp solar panels (part no. RUB-TES3) — R169,000.
  3. Tesla Powerwall, 5kW SolarEdge inverter, and 5kWp solar panels (part no. RUB-TES5) —  R210,000.
  4. Two Tesla Powerwalls, 5kW SolarEdge inverter, and 5kWp solar panels (part no. RUB-TES5.2) — R272,000.
