    How to tell after power outage if you are using PW Batteries or if the grid is back on?

    So the power came back on almost immediately. About five minutes or so after the power came back on, I did get a notification saying the house was being powered from the power walls, it was not. I never have received any of those screen shots when running from power walls during a power...

    How to tell after power outage if you are using PW Batteries or if the grid is back on?

    Our power went out and the Power Walls started up providing service. However, now it seems the power grid is back on. How do you tell if you are using the Power Walls or the Grid. This is important because if you have an extended power failure, you need to turn off house A/C, large power...

    No Solar Production with Power Outage

    Thanks for the info. I was not at home. Checking the app remotely I noticed no solar production looking at the app graph. There was a big gap in the solar production app graph. The PW's were fully charged when the outage happened. The outage was 1.5 hours so I do not know how low the...

    Playing golf today in CA and noticed my solar production was dead, no production. My house was being powered by my 2 power wall batteries. After about 1 1/2 hours solar started working again, charging the batteries, and powering the house. When I got home I discovered we had a power outage of...

    My $250 deposit [why can I not get my deposit back?]

    Thanks for all the responses. As expected I did not get my $250 back. From my perspective when I ordered the car in Dec, Tesla quoted me a Mar delivery. That is why I placed the order, and that date held until Feb when the order slipped to May. The order was placed on their delivery date...

    I know that the site says non-refundable, but according to the web some folks are getting the deposit back I am a very loyal Tesla customer installing last year 48 panels, and 2 PW's. It costs a lot of money. It has been a very good customer experience. Anyway, my wife's car, the lease...

    Using the SolarEdge App, how to tell if you have as bad optimizer, Panels?

    Looking at the daily production I show some production on Inverter 1, however, when I run playback the panels always are shaded, and I do not see what panels on that inverter are producing energy. How can that be. Tesla tells me all is right with the panels. Are those panels on inverter 1...

    squirrel guard and tesla install

    Putting a screen around the Tesla panels should not void any warranty. Contact Tesla and ask for their Pest Abatement Quote. They will quote a price and send a crew to install the screen, or they will refer you to someone in your area that can do that work.

    squirrel guard and tesla install

    There are people that install the mesh screen on solar. I live in Northern California and had my 48 panels screened. It cost approximately $1,500 to do all the panels. It is my understanding that Tesla will do the screening. They are more expensive. Good Luck, these varmints eat the...
