Electric Dream in Cheam

Living the Electric Dream

We have recently completed the installation of two new Tesla Powerwalls with a backup Gateway to a customer living in an impressively designed house in Cheam, Surrey. Previously we had installed 38 JA Solar panel system to the roof generating a powerful 11.97 kWp. Meaning they can live the the electric dream and during the six months of summer the property is almost entirely independent of the grid.


This means as well having the ability to store his generated power and use it when the sun isn’t shining to reduce his electricity bills, he now also has back up power in the event of a grid power supply failure.

The Tesla Powerwall is able to store a market leading 13.5 kWh, so with two working in unison creates a total storage capacity of 27 kWh, allowing the customer the opportunity to be completely independent of the grid for 6 months of the year.

The system also incorporates a SolarEdge inverter and monitor so that all the information as to how much power is being generated and whether its allocated to the car, battery, hot water system or exported to the grid is available in real time to the customer via the apps supplied by SolarEdge and Tesla.


The system comprises:

  • 38 panels from JA Solar with integrated Solaredge optimiser
  • SolarEdge SE8000 inverter, with a market leading 12-year warranty
  • 2 Tesla Powerwalls giving  27 kWh of backup battery storage system
  • Myenergi ‘zappi’ EV charging point for charging the new Tesla car
  • My Energi ‘eddi’ to divert excess energy to the hot water tank

The owner commented , ‘Ben was knowledgeable, friendly and quoted a fair and competitive price that was the best of several quotes I received. The installation was done professionally and to a high standard. Subsequent manufacturer warranty issues (not the fault of SogoSolar) were dealt with efficiently and without fuss. Genuine company and highly recommended’

Zappi EV Smart Charger

SogoSolar designed and installed this project during 2019-20 for Cheam solar panels and Tesla Powerwall  in what is a very high tech house with 3-phase power system. We also worked in close consultation with the clients own power consultant and Tesla’s technical team.
