How did this Aussie family reduce their electricty bill by 90%?
The Pfitzner family reduced their electricity bill by over 90%, from $660 down to just $50 for the entire quarter! How did they do it? They installed a Natural Solar Home Energy Storage Solution (ESS) which includes a Tesla Powerwall home battery and a 5kW solar system.
With the solar system covering the family’s daytime power consumption and the Tesla Powerwall covering their nighttime power consumption, the Pfitzner family is paying almost nothing for their electricity – in fact, only 59c PER DAY! This means their entire household runs almost completely off renewable energy, day in, day out, all day and all night.

So how does the Tesla Powerwall work?
On a typical sunny day, the Pfitzner family’s Tesla Powerwall is charged by about 11am, only after the household power usage is completely covered, the excess solar power will then feed into the Tesla Powerwall battery.
If there is an oversupply of solar power even after the Tesla Powerwall battery is completely full, any excess will be fed back into the grid at the usual Feed In Tariff rates.
Once the battery is fully drained and the current solar power being produced (if any, eg, at night) is insufficient to power the household completely, the home will draw power from the grid seamlessly without interruption.
The Proof – $0.59 per day!
