    Setec CCS to Tesla Adapter

    Just received a Setec adapter. Ordered 4/26 and arrived 4/30 (Denver). Shipped from Brea, Ca. UPS Ground. A tracking number would have been nice. There were no follow up messages post order. Doing Denver to Santa Fe next month and would like a backup charging source.

    Xcel Time of Use Rates in Colorado

    Holy crap, you system is huge. Thanks for all the Wow, thanks for all the detail. Holy crap, your system is huge. I'm so small (7 kw solar) it's amazing you can even see me down here. You must be quite a power user. Interesting your Xcel problems. Amazing they upgraded the transformer...

    Xcel Time of Use Rates in Colorado

    Yea, the high peak rate is great for Power Wall people. It's still a big expense with a long (if ever) payback period. Can help Xcel a lot too. They should throw in a 1-2k rebate on a power wall install. That would be interesting. So are you happy with your powerwall. How's it work during...

    Xcel Time of Use Rates in Colorado

    Thanks, So no more mid-rate, and only peak only during the summer months. I'll have to think about it. I think I can live with that. I was mostly not liking the fact that I'd have to buy back power at a higher rate then what I'm producing it at. A few months only will lessen the effect.

    Xcel Time of Use Rates in Colorado

    So can you read the total power on that thing? I was thinking it was just showing power snippets over small time intervals. My friend could not figure out how to read the meter (to compare solar production numbers). Did you find instructions on how to read the meter ?

    Xcel Time of Use Rates in Colorado

    hmmm, thanks. Peak, Off-Peak. Is there a shoulder rate still in there? Or just two rates now?

    Xcel Time of Use Rates in Colorado

    :) Thanks. I have a friend who did solar about a year after me. He already has these weird meters where the number are constantly jumping around and seem impossible to read directly. I guessing these are the TOU meters ? He wasn't initially on TOU. I suppose they can switch him over anytime.

    Xcel Time of Use Rates in Colorado

    Just popped in here so see if there's any updates. As someone pointed out earlier, TOU is going to extend the solar payback period. 60% to 70% of my power is going to be at the lowest tier (my panels get more sun in the morning). Makes me want a power wall (though the economics still probably...

    SolarEdge Monitoring w/Tesla Solar Panels (Using GWY10 Zigbee Gateway)

    Yes, both my Tesla and SolarEdge monitors are simultaneously functional again. The story goes all they back to Solar City. I griped when they turned off the Solar City monitoring portal and asked customer service to authorize SolarEdge monitoring. I didn't expect anything, but about a month...

    SolarEdge Monitoring w/Tesla Solar Panels (Using GWY10 Zigbee Gateway)

    I think they changed that in the last year. I do have a production grantee (from an early 2019 install). I have a friend who installed at the end of 2019 (after the price drop w/ the fixed sized systems) and he does not have a production grantee. Irregardless, the system would still have a...

    SolarEdge Monitoring w/Tesla Solar Panels (Using GWY10 Zigbee Gateway)

    I'm a bit afraid to mess with those. "PAN ID" may be specific to my unit, and might "Scan Channel" trigger an attempt to re-pair the Zigbee. Can you even manually set the PAN ID and Channel ? If you lost the Zigbee connection I think you need to do some kind of "Device Discovery" as described...

    SolarEdge Monitoring w/Tesla Solar Panels (Using GWY10 Zigbee Gateway)

    Maybe this will help. I bet solar7 from this post can help you. He knows how to pair a Gateway. There might also be instructions in the Inverter manual. SolarEdge Monitoring w/Tesla Solar Panels (Using GWY10 Zigbee Gateway)

    SolarEdge Monitoring w/Tesla Solar Panels (Using GWY10 Zigbee Gateway)

    I finally got around to trying the Ethernet connection. I had to go to the communication service menu and change the server to "LAN". Then "S_OK" appeared and solaredge portal data slowly filled in back to 2/16. Tesla monitoring was cut off until I switched it back to "Zigbee". So, I guess...

    Xcel Time of Use Rates in Colorado

    Doesn't look great for me. I'm net positive during the workday as I've got my house idle power down to 300 watts. They shifted the start of the shoulder two hours later. I produce pretty good power between 9 and 11, so that would be credited at the off-peak rate. And, the later start of the...
