    PG&E changes 110% of usage rule to 100%

    At what point will PG&E approve or deny the system size? I am in the process and waiting for install date. We oversized in anticipation for an EV, and also so we can run the AC more. Hoping to not have an issue but we are sized almost double last year's bills. We have also been in discussion...

    Tesla Energy [install unable to proceed due to lack of site survey]

    I had the site survey, been over 1.5 months, still have not received the details. Sent emails, no replies. I was assigned a new project adviser, I thought this would help, but this one is actually worse then the last. I called in to see the status, all they could say is it was in review, I guess...

    Elon tweets: Solar Roof and solar panels will only be sold integrated with Powerwall

    Is the 36 inch rule for any solar install, or only if you need panel upgrade. I have an order in, nothing has been said about the panel at this point. I have already had the site survey done and still waiting for the results. Guy who came out said everything was in order, but later found out...

    Is 1 PowerWall better than No PowerWall?

    I am in a similar situation, would like PW, but just too hard to justify the costs. I thought about doing just a single, like you suggested, but decided at this point it was much easier to adjust my usage during peak hours. We have had maybe 6-8 power outages in over 10 years, most of those were...

    Getting a more than "properly sized" system under SMUD

    This was my thinking on my first system, I almost immediately regretted it. I thought I could just add a few more panels later, then comes to find out no one wants to do that. Only option was to install a completely separate system, which is what I am in the process of doing now. If I could go...

    Could this be what is coming for everyone one net metering?

    This is what I am hoping for. I am worried about the monthly fees that are being suggested. We are adding additional panels to charge the car, and supply 100% of our energy during the daylight hours. We plan to eliminate heavy usage at night or low producing times. I am currently in NEM 1, but...

    Adding 2nd solar array, does Tesla install additional meter (NGOM)

    I am in the beginning process of installing a second solar array to our existing system. First system is under NEM 1, installed in 2011. According to PG&E I have 2 options, move both systems to NEM 2.0 and keep my original grandfather date. This is not ideal, since I only have 10 years left...
