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.

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.
After installing a solar system and coupling it with a Tesla Powerwall (installed by Natural Solar) and swapping from Energy Australia to Diamond Energy (a company that promotes renewables).
These costs are based on the SA Power network in Adelaide but prices may vary depending on your circumstances. This comparison assumes a general energy usage of 4000kWh/year for a residential customer on Energy Locals Time of Use Tariff – (TOU – Peak, Off-Peak & Solar Sponge).
The reference price is set by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) for a financial year in relation to electricity supply to residential customers in the distribution region and is based on an assumed annual usage amount. Any difference between the reference price and the unconditional price of a plan is expressed as a percentage more or less than the reference price. The terms of any conditional discounts are shown, along with any further difference between the reference price and the discount applied if a condition is met, expressed as a percentage more or less than the reference price.
