    Even taking into account the state of the Canadian dollar, the price difference between Canada and the US is ridiculous! I’m so tired of feeling ripped off up here.

      That s what it is ripped off , there is no reason for such a price different , people forget that ‘s already retail price in the USA so profit is all ready in it

    I am developing new mining exploration equipment that will use a battery system. Tesla Power walls and other Tesla power systems could meet our specifications. Your business plan for selling Tesla power products is a form of outdated thinking that will not last. I suggest your investors walk ASAP.

    Facebook, Facebook, Facebook.

    A local electrical contractor orders a powerwall for you and makes 5 to 10 percent on the $3000 US price plus the exchange rate. Other attachments are charged in a similar way. He is certified and install it for you at competitive electrician prices.

    This is what social media will be informing all Canadians. The high markup will never work.

    I so strongly agree with the discus about the Canadian mark up .I was so happy to see the start up of the tesla company and its efforts in green renewable. energy .Now all that excitement has been damaged knowing tesla would team up with a company that would rip off its own country men like that . I sure hope tesla comes up with an alternative or knocks some sense into MPOWER ENERGY SOLUTIONS.

    Just makes it a non starter doesn’t it!

    Elon Musk will drop these guys as distributors. Solar PV + battery (or battery only) works when the cost per KWh leaves a reasonable payback period. What these guys have done is roll the clock back 10-years when it cost $1,000 per KWh. If you are investigating this technology you know it’s $200/KWh now. Product will never come off the shelf at these rip-off prices. I can’t wait for the next home show in my area and I see this kind of crap. $5,000 for installation…really!

      You are Sooooo correct. It does not coincide with the Tesla philosophy. Panasonic also has a storage unit available now but no idea if it is available in Canada or its costs. Same tech just not packaged as fancy.

    Two electriciansWorking on a system exactly like tesla Mercedes even better for a Canadian market and price will be a lot cheaper

    These Batteries are a Total Rip Off for sure! The price has to come a way down to even discuss such a venture!

    I realize this article is a couple of years old, but it seems to get some traction still. So maybe you should update your numbers. The Powerwall isn’t $3000USD, it’s $6600 USD ($8450CAD), which means we pay $500 CAD more at $9060 CAD. Doesn’t mean it’s affordable or practical as I’ve read using it in Ontario just to offset peak energy prices would take 11 years to break even. But we aren’t being ripped off as Canadians, well, we’re paying $500 more, but that could just be a buffer for the exchange rate.

    There are a series of YouTube videos showing how to make your own for a fraction of the Mpower price.

    How about driving to Buffalo and buying the batteries there. Even paying duty will still make the product much more economical.

    Go to the Tesla Web site and you will see real U.S. cost….the 6,000.00$ is not realistic….Do some research and you will find that the Canadian prices line up pretty well with the U.S. costs. Still an expensive option for power. Also it is not known when Tesla’s roofing tiles will be available in Canada and I have no idea what they will be worth. Tesla Canada says within the year….2019…..now. But?

    • This article was written a long time ago. Let us know what are the new prices for both Powerwall and its installation.

    • Doug says:

      Hi Ron. I am trying to talk to someone that is at Tesla, or an installer of the Powerwall. Do you know anyone, or a company that can install the Powerwall in BC, or something similar for a better price? All I need is answers. I have to have a backup system installed ( orders by the City for my Basement suit… long story short)
      I will follow up with the Tesla peeps again. They have been no help at all for the last several times I have tried contacting them.

  13. Doug says:

    I put a deposit down for the Tesla Powerwall over one and a half years ago. I was Impressed with the price figuring the Canadian dollar being about .65 -.75 to the American dollar.
    So 3000 x 35% = 4050
    I understand Installation and other equipment costs… plus taxes. I guessed about 10,000- 12,000 all in.

    Now I am looking at these prices and I AM NOT HAPPY!!! Another thing is I have tried to reach somebody to help me and tell me what’s going on….. I have not heard from anyone. This is not being handled well. I may just want my deposit back!!!

    I have a feeling one of the ways Tesla was allowed to sell in Canada is buy charging almost twice that they are in the US. This is not Tesla’s fault. Its the fault of Canadian corporations and Corrupt politicans across the aisles in Canada. The hydro cos along with the politicians are bleeding us dry. OH CANADA INDEED!

    • Randy WEster says:

      Tesla’s pricing is on the website $9,250 CAD each Powerwall, plus $1550 for supporting hardware, plus installation. $20,050 plus installation for 2, so maybe $25,000 all in?

      We can’t possibly justify one based on payback vs. just buying grid electricity at night (17 years or so?). The value would have to come from having electricity in a grid outage to run a sump pump, furnace, freezer/fridge.

      Price in California is $6,500 each + $1100 for supporting hardware. Less a $1,000 rebate if you have been affected by wildfires (CNBC, October 28, 2019). The $3,000 figure might have been for the original, smaller battery, and after some combination of U.S. federal and state rebates or tax breaks, or Elon’s smoking something and tweeting a number..

    Do Canadians get rebates from our governments?
    Ontario or Canada.
