The aptly named town of Sonnen and neighboring Markt Schwaben in Germanys south are the locations for some of the countrys first Tesla Powerwall systems.
Despite the striking appearance of the storage system, the Powerwall was installed in a garage, given to the light noise caused by the batterys cooling system.
The installations have garnered attention as they mark the arrival of Teslas stationary storage products in Germanys fast-growing battery market.
Installer Praml reported the successful installations, noting that the 95kg Powerwall system required that its transport was well planned transport and that a two-person installation team completed the job.
The garage of a residence in the holiday town of Sonnen was chosen as the Powerwall installation site because of the noise produced by the battery system and specifications that it should not be exposed to temperatures below -20C.
The Powerwall was installed alongside a single-phase SolarEdge inverter.
Martin Praml, the installation companys Managing Director, reports that his company had previously sold more than 300 competitor storage systems.
