Post     Subject: Set up a power wall - electricity.straw.powerwall PEP BB

This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Electricity.

In this Badge Bit, you will install a powerwall for your house.  Whether to store grid power during off-peak rates or for a renewable energy system, they're nifty.  Let's install one!

You can use an official Tesla powerwall or build your own

Here's an installation on a grid tied system:

There are two point options for this BB:
  - properly (to code) install in a grid tied house - 20 points
  - properly (to code) install in an off-grid house - 10 points

The minimum requirements are:
  - install one or more powerwalls (or rough equivalent)
  - follow local codes
  - you are doing 90+% of the work

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the parts of your system as purchased
  - the system at two points during the installation
  - clear description of the components of your system and how they work together
  - the finished installation
