    A Positive Service Experience

    I wanted to contribute some positivity since so many service posts are negative, although I too have had a few bad ones in the past. But with that said... I recently had to take my 2016 S in because the screen kept randomly rebooting. I first tried a Mobile appt and the gent worked on it for...

    This is an awesome set-up. Congrats!

    2016 Headlight Removal Tip

    Friendly heads-up to anyone replacing their headlight and watching/reading the various threads/videos on the topic. There is a step missing in all the ones I could find here and on YouTube and that is that there is a bracket (see picture) that further braces the headlight to the car (and also...

    Regenerative braking vs brake pedal

    Yea, you hit it. I'm in the Bay Area and regularly commute to SF, which is the primary reason I keep creepin'. I am a HUGE fan of hold though. Probably use it on 95% of my stops. But I may try free wheelin' for a day or so just to see the range difference.

    Regenerative braking vs brake pedal

    Yup. I'm creepy.

    Wow!

    Regenerative braking vs brake pedal

    Agreed on all of the above. I find it amusing that occasionally people will complain about the feel of the regen. I actually get slightly annoyed when I have to push the brake. It's become a challenge to see if I can make one set of pads last forever. I find myself often debating if I should...

    Regenerative braking vs brake pedal

    Out of curiosity, has anyone replaced their brake pads yet? I'm on 70K miles and nowhere near ready. Gives my tire/brake guy a chuckle when I ask how the pads look.

    NEM 2.0 vs NEMMT

    Fun update: Tesla is now stating that they don’t support a split system due to the costs and significant delays associated with the study (3 months). This is interesting because we still don’t have a straight answer on the costs. I’ve asked if they can run a simulated cost of our system on NEM...

    NEM 2.0 vs NEMMT

    Thanks Wayne. We're still doing the back and forth with Tesla/PG&E, but thus far no one's said that the original system can't stay on NEM 1.0. The debate has been around the costs of that option, which we're trying to get details on now. I'll continue to report back as we go. In other good...

    NEM 2.0 vs NEMMT

    Yes, I should have clarified. We're getting a second solar system and 2 Powerwalls. So, in theory, we'd have 25 panels on NEM 1.0 and 8 on NEM 2.0, should we go the split route. Tesla are actually the ones who told us about the decision. That doesn't mean they've done that many, of course. On...

    NEM 2.0 vs NEMMT

    Ah, I didn't realize PG&E was forcing the 'battery only' folks as well. That's interesting and makes no sense. In any event, we've called PG&E and they've given us a rough number of $800-$1000 per NGOM which leans me towards the split route. To give a final estimate, they need a study from...

    NEM 2.0 vs NEMMT

    I would love to see the results of this. As an update, I'm leaning towards NEMMT and have a call in to PG&E to get the cost. -miimura: did you have to install an NGOM?

    NEM 2.0 vs NEMMT

    Thanks GenSao and wwhitney for the info. This is very helpful. We certainly sympathize with trying to get a clear answer out of anyone at PG&E, or Tesla for that matter. And yes, we also recognize the EV plan and when we use power is probably the biggest variable here that will ultimately...

    NEM 2.0 vs NEMMT

    NEM 1.0 is no longer in use, as of July 2017. So your only options are those above, unless your system is over 1 MW, then there are some additional rules.
