Bringing reliable energy to your neighbourhood: Tesla Powerwall Pilot Rental Program

This Powerwall Pilot is now complete. Please stay tuned for future opportunities to get a Tesla Powerwall in your home.

NRStor, Enbridge, Toronto Hydro, and MPOWER Energy Solutions completed an exciting resiliency pilot program, featuring Tesla Powerwall.

Eligible homeowners in Toronto located near Spadina and College (the shaded green areas on the map below) had the opportunity to access reliable backup power during grid outages, better manage peak electricity usage and monitor real time energy consumption for $29.99/month on a 10-year rental, plus a one-time connection charge of $1,500.1

MPOWER Energy Solutions managed the installation and operations of the batteries. The batteries charge with lower cost off-peak electricity and use that stored energy during peak times to directly benefit you and the local electricity grid.

  • You will receive alerts in the event of a power outage
  • The battery will provide seamless backup power supply for your essential appliances and devices in your home.
  • You will be able to monitor home energy use in real time on your phone from anywhere.
  • You could benefit from a reduction in your peak electricity bill.

Powerwall improves reliability for customers and reduces costs for everyone on peak energy days.

  • Customer’s Home must be located in the Spadina and College area, generally understood to be the area between Bloor Street West, Roxton Road, Dundas Street West, and University Avenue in Toronto, Ontario;
