Severe Weather Events
Storm Watch is triggered during severe storms that are more likely to knock down power lines and cause outages, such as high winds, hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, red flag warnings and tornados. Storm Watch activates when the weather event has advanced in severity, and a warning has been issued in your area. If Storm Watch hasn’t activated based on your local weather conditions, and you prefer additional energy security, set a higher Backup Reserve in advance of an anticipated grid outage.
Note: To better prepare yourself for everyday weather events or other grid instability, visit your utility provider’s website for updates.
Supported Regions: North America, Australia and New Zealand
How to Set Up Storm Watch
Step 1: From the home screen, open the ‘Settings’ menu.
Step 2: Scroll down, and then enable ‘Storm Watch.’
Your system is now in standby and will operate as normal, and your Powerwall will automatically react to severe weather events that may cause a grid outage. When active, Powerwall charges to full, protecting against outages.
