    Storm Watch not charging!

    This is correct for me.

    Storm Watch not charging!

    @getakey, technically -- maybe. The PW charge graph profile is identical to the grid charge profile for that period of only 2%. However, I was generating more than that amount of solar at the time, so it is probably a moot point.

    Storm Watch not charging!

    With Storm Watch (SW) active, my PW charged to 99% which then dipped to 98% by morning. There was no grid power loss so I assume this was the energy PW needed to run itself. I turned off SW and the PW pulled from the grid in my normal Advanced mode, getting it to a full 100%. I visually...

    Storm Watch not charging!

    Storm Watch activated again this evening for forecasted high winds. Working well now: charges from the grid and overrides Advanced mode (as it should). Turning SW off in the app still results in an error but when I quit/restart the app, it does quickly (~5 minutes) show the change (SW on or...

    Storm Watch not charging!

    Thanks @CMD1997! I called Tesla again today to check on the status of the Tier 2 support ticket; no update. She recommended keeping Storm Watch turned on and using backup-only as an imperfect workaround. I'm expecting High Wind Warnings to take effect tomorrow so I'll have a chance to...

    Storm Watch not charging!

    Storm Watch stayed on for another ~36 hours after the wind warnings expired, and toggling the switch would not turn it off. Yet the whole time, it did not operate as if it was in Storm Watch (no charging from the grid, normal discharging when on Advanced mode). It finally exited Storm Watch...

    Storm Watch not charging!

    Thanks for the help so far! Storm Watch still active now at night, and still no charging. Powerwall at 66% (from solar production in Back-only mode) with the home pulling only 0.4 kW from the grid. SW error happens even if I've waited hours from last toggling it. Same error on both the iOS...

    Storm Watch not charging!

    To my surprise, I was able to talk to a very nice human at Tesla within one minute of calling. He first claimed Storm Watch mode will not charge from the grid when there is any solar production (which I don't think is true, and doesn't explain why it wouldn't charge overnight). Then he...

    Storm Watch not charging!

    My Powerwall 2 entered Storm Watch mode last night due to a High Wind Warning in SoCal (interestingly, the prior Fire Weather Watch did not trigger it). The app displays "Storm Watch" in yellow under "Powerwall" and "Active" in the customize settings. However, it is not charging from the...

    sce baseline credit

    I am eligible to sign up for SCE's medical baseline, but would it actually cost me MORE if I am a net generator (solar+powerwall) for the year? I've been unable to wrap my brain around this. Thanks for anyone that can enlighten me. Sorry to resurrect this thread, but it's the most relevant I...
