Solar Power For Gen Z: Top TikToks Of 2023

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Finn, you’re a bit old for TikTok, aren’t you?” And you’re not wrong. I’m more of a long-form kinda guy, myself. But, like a dad tryna learn the latest dance moves to impress his kids, I’m not afraid to venture into new territory.

Why? Because the solar revolution needs all the voices it can get, even if those voices are sometimes lip-syncing to Cardi B. So, let’s jump into the top 5 SolarQuotes TikToks of 2023, and see what’s capturing the hearts and minds of the Gen Z solar enthusiasts:

#5 Non-Teslas charging at Tesla superchargers – rolling out now!

26.6k views

In February, Tesla announced that some of it’s Australian Superchargers would now charge non-Teslas. I took my Electric Mini to the Adelaide Supercharger to announce the news. To see also : array. Unfortunately, I managed to get the charging plug stuck in the Mini’s socket. I was about to make an embarrassing phonecall to Tesla when it magically released.

#4 It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Aussie solar installers rate Fronius as the greatest!

29.7k views

Announcing that our annual survey of Aussie installers once again voted Fronius as the best solar inverter money can buy. See the article : Silfab Solar secures strategic development funding. Plenty of commenters accused us of taking money from Fronius, blissfully unaware that we have a policy of refusing to take money from hardware manufacturers.

#3 Building a House? Go for 3-phase power.

121.7k views

If you’re building a house in Australia, get a 3-phase connection. On the same subject : Can You Install A Smart Solar Meter On A Strata Townhouse? YES!. It’s surprisingly cheap if done from the outset (assuming your builder’s not a crook). It means you can install more solar, and will have a higher current rating when you need to charge your car, cook your dinner, and relax in the sauna at the same time.

#2 Tesla Powerwalls are really expensive. What other batteries should you consider?

177.4k views

Posted in January, before any of 2023’s price drops, an installed Powerwall would not get much change from $20,000. Here, I suggest looking at Sungrow, BYD, Redback and SolarEdge as alternatives. Twelve months later, an installed Powerwall is closer to $15,000, making a much more compelling option as a retrofit. And with the Powerwall 3 with integrated solar inverter promised in Australia for 2024, Tesla will be looking to dominate the market for solar and batteries installed together.

#1 Electric Car batteries have some exciting developments

195.4k views

The winning post announced CATL’s high ‘specific energy’ battery using next-level science stuff, like biomimetic tech and superconductive materials. If CATL’s claims stack up this could lead to EVs with 1,000km of range. If your attention can hold for more than 32 seconds, Ronald wrote a long-form blog post about these wonder batteries here.

As you can see from the views, I struggle with short-form videos. But if you’re into clean energy and TikTok comes naturally, start creating! We must inspire a whole new generation to embrace clean energy and bust all the anti-progress tropes in those TikTok comments.

That’s something worth dancing for.

Just don’t ask me to join in on the dance challenges. I’ll stick mostly to my blog posts, thanks very much.
