    Utility Rate Plans Where are they?

    I just set mine up. I was getting tired of setting my alarm to change my peak hours….

    Arizona Powerwall Installs

    Hi Jay did you end up switching to the E-15 plan? I can’t seem to wrap my head around why it would be better. I have very small demand hits every so often, but nothing more than 1kw a month. I guess I would need to see some higher demand charges for that plan to make an impact? I will say...

    Arizona Powerwall Installs

    Yeah I think the Tesla app has some gaps...perhaps someone else might know why it is different because I hardly look at usage as it doesn’t match. I really only care about how much battery I have left and what my currently kWh discharge rate is.

    Let me try this again from the Tesla App. It seems different than what I see on SRP.... The July data might be more confusing than its worth since its only 16 days of service. Jun 2020 All Usage Home Usage 2347 kWh Solar Energy 1466 kWh Powerwall 440 kWh From Grid 1175 kWh To Grid 251 kWh...

    Arizona Powerwall Installs

    I have an 8kw system with 2 batteries 3000sqft home with 2,14 seer ac units. I will say it does get tight some days especially on days it gets over 110 degrees. I wish I would of gotten the 3rd powerwall, but do I really need it? Not really and it would be more so I don't have to check the app...

    Grid Charge Powerwall with Solar

    Just an FYI to all the folks curious about charging from the grid. I did manage to get Tesla to admit if I sent a letter saying I wasn’t going to claim my tax credit that they would forward it to the appropriate folks to see about allowing me to charge from the grid. I got the impression she...

    Grid Charge Powerwall with Solar

    Thanks Fonzi. I agree I did not have the most confident person on the line as it bugs me when people are afraid to say I don't know. They instead make things up on the fly or repeat the same message without backing it up with facts. I will give the Tesla rep a thumbs up for at least trying as...

    Grid Charge Powerwall with Solar

    Well after 45mins and 3 transfers I got no where with Tesla turning on my powerwalls to grid charge let alone telling me the exact rule/regulation. They would not even say it’s an internal policy, Tesla just keep quoting the ITC regulation lol. Which I promptly relied yup I won’t file then do...

    Grid Charge Powerwall with Solar

    Interesting thread, I might forgo the tax credit of $6300 in lieu of being able to charge from the grid in the evening. All I need to do is call Tesla and tell them I want grid charging turned on since Tesla did my install? Do I need to provide documentation that I did/will not request the tax...

    Thanks. I was assuming since all the hard work was done it would be a simple cheaper job in the $1000-$1500 range.

    Arizona Powerwall Installs

    Out of curiosity has anyone added an additional battery to their current system after they have already had powerwalls installed? I’m curious of what Tesla charges for installation. I see its $7600 on the website, but it doesn’t include everything. Thanks

    Powerwall Time-Based with 2 peak periods

    Ok, I set up my smart hub using and tested it last night. Worked wonderfully, I had 82% left when I woke up this morning at 4:45am to check on the program. I did notice my projected SRP bill went up $5, but it might have been a coincidence...I really like my $65 electric bills. I only set up...

    Powerwall Time-Based with 2 peak periods

    I originally had a demand controller on my house prior getting batteries. Once I got my batteries Tesla removed it and it has been sitting on my desk since I didn’t think it would work with the batteries. Out of the blue I emailed the company to see if it work with the batteries. Meaning turn...

    Powerwall Time-Based with 2 peak periods

    I just ordered my smart hub and will be testing out your program Darwin. I’m a bit excited because I have had to turn on the heat in the house and I'm scrapping by to get to 8am when the solar kicks on due to the powerwall powering the house during the off peak hours :-( If it wouldn’t run all...
