    2 Months Since Net Metering was Rejected

    Anyone else having issues with the Permit Department with Tesla? I paid my first downpayment back in September and they finally submitted my net metering in early October. The Net Metering was rejected due to no electrical permit was attached. They said my county (Brevard) that the building...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I decided to give up on negotiating. When I signed the price increase "new contract" total price was I think $56k and $48k after rebate. Overall price when down due to oversizing and more of a rebate. $51.8k using old pricing = 11.69kw Roof (2850 sq ft total roof) + Powerwall 2/7.6 inverter...

    FPL PTO "System Size Must Be Reduced"

    I have not yet paid a down payment due to the damage that was caused to my house during the install. I am not going to pay the down payment until someone Tesla responds to what is happening. I was under the impression that I was able to get net metering, they should have made sure my...

    FPL PTO "System Size Must Be Reduced"

    The house we installed the solar roof we bought earlier this year, we do not have 1 year of tracking. The bill I uploaded was for a summer month. Gas Dryer + Gas Heater, so I was banking on the cooler months to rack up credits and leave my HVAC on 24/7 during the summer.

    FPL PTO "System Size Must Be Reduced"

    Had the Solar Roof Installed which ended up oversized 50%. PTO Net Metering draft says: "The system production is larger than your annual energy usage. The system size must be reduced prior to FPL approval." Took a look at the checklist on Tesla website and "approval to install" was never...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    Sent this to them. Rejected again. So new contract is $800 less but also $100 less in tax incentive so meh. Finally cost ~51k for 11.69kw Array and 1x Powerwall+. This also included free fascia, soffit, and landscaping damage lol. Still refusing to pay them a nickel until they "clean up" and...

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Took the battery down to 10% ish from 100%. Using actual miles driven, my 2018 M3 LR AWD gets around 345miles full charge per my driving habits. This involved going on the highway as well as local. Scared the crap outa me the other day when I switched to miles then charged to 100% (haven't...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I complained for the old pricing and my overall cost just went down 1k because my array was oversized from 7.25 --> 11.7 kW and I was given a free powerwall+. Not much a difference. So yes you can get the old pricing but they will charge you for any "freebies" they gave you. I'm going to try...

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Okay I totally freaked out because the M3 doesn't show the miles like my MS does. Switched back to %. Looks like I haven't really lost much range because I was still hitting "310" in January before I switched to %. M3: 100% --> 88% 46 miles driven. That gives me an effective range of 383 miles...

    M3 has lost % more in 3 years than my MS in 7 years lol.

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Haven't charged this car to 100% in 4 months. Was going to see what the difference is between chill and sport mode, but the estimator is all funky which doesn't help.

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    2018 M3 LR AWD. Did I recalibrate wrong? Usually 90% is around 270 using %. Switched to miles and charged to full 100% today and its 280???? Full range I believe is 310.

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    so many clouds here in Florida - tried to find the worst "plateau" days.

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    10-30% less efficient is true. Comparing to Solar Panels at a nearby site with the same array size but are panels instead, I generally lag 20% less efficient comparing non peak times. That array gets max of around 10kw/h so the 7.6 I have currently now is pretty close. I'm probably only clipping...
