    Hi All,

    I've got some Powerwall 2's due to be installed in a few weeks. I'd like to ensure that cosmetically they fit in well and I'm planning on getting my builder to prepare the conduit cabling into my cement wall to ensure it's all pretty. To help with this prep though I'd like to know what the minimum separation b/w 2 powerwall 2's when wall mounted is and also what the top / bottom clearance looks like for these.

    I'm guessing that most of this is answered in the Powerwall 2 installation manual (as opposed to the user manual). I can find copies of the v1 Powerwall install manual on the internet but not the Powerwall 2 install manual.

    Does anyone have a copy they'd be able to share or failing that provide some guidance on what the spacing b/w the 2 powerwalls when wall mounted is?

    The manual they left behind for me is not very useful.

    Didn't see any installation manual.

    I'd love to see the PW2 Install Manual too. I have a callback from Tesla I need to return and will request it. The best I can tell so far is from internet photos of real installs. Regarding those, if you stack them together front-to-back, the clearance required is quite small and they seem to supply stock spacers for this. But unlike PW1, I have not seen photos of side-to-side stock spacers or minimal distances between PW2. (Anyway I don't think they would make side spacers for PW2 since power switch, lighting, and exhaust is on the side). The PW1 side clearance spec was 4 in.

    Minimum clearance from right side (air exhaust):

    150 mm (6 in)

    Minimum clearance above single Powerwall:

    50 mm (2 in)

    Minimum clearance above side-by-side Powerwalls:

    300 mm (12 in)

    Minimum clearance between side-by-side Powerwalls:

    250 mm (10 in)

    Thanks @Musterion when they come to do the install I'll see if I can get a copy / photos of the install guide.

    How far can they be from tie-in (junction box)? Could gulf-coasters protect these electronics from flood by installing high on the wall or even on 2nd floor?
