    Powerwall Backorders

    Since you are not in Norcal, I don't think it would help. You should ask your solar installer if you could talk with the appropriate rep for your area.

    Powerwall Backorders

    Yes, I wanted to work with a local Santa Cruz, CA company that was certified for the Self-Generation Incentive Program.

    Powerwall Backorders

    Well things certainly can change. I spoke to the Tesla Energy rep. on June 22, 2021. He said it would likely be late September or the end of the year at worst for delivery. Not a week later, my solar contractor said they had received some Powerwalls, and I would be having my 3 installed this...

    Powerwall Backorders

    Well a sales rep actually did contact me today. There is a chip shortage with the inverter chips that go into the powerwalls. So powerwalls each have an inverter chip. Meaning the Tesla gateway does not act as an inverter. Interesting. They have two sources for these chips and BOTH are...

    Powerwall Backorders

    My solar contractor said Tesla "Senior Management" will be contacting me directly in the next couple of weeks to explain their delays. I will report back here what I learn.

    Powerwall Backorders

    I have a SGIP contract with a 3rd party. No powerwalls for the last 9 months. I was told yesterday that there is now a chip shortage. My concerns are that I have until October to complete the SGIP process to get the rebate. I have asked the installer if that date can be extended due to...

    How to get a hold of service, not using the app

    Update: I drove to the Service Center, explained my dilemma, and they made an appointment for me tomorrow. So it seems that going in person is the best way!

    How to get a hold of service, not using the app

    It is not making an appointment, it is returning the wheel within 3 business days, unless mutually agreed upon. If I could actually talk to someone at tesla, or if they would even respond to my texts or emails, then we could be assured I would not be charged for the wheel

    How to get a hold of service, not using the app

    So, I had a flat tire after my 800 mile journey from Santa Cruz, CA to Kirkland, WA. They have quickly given my a loaner tire. I then dutifully made an appointment for a tire swap. Earliest appointment was 3 weeks out. Now Tesla says in the tire loan agreement that I need to make an...

    What is the current lead time for Power Wall installation?

    I just received a similar notice from my installer yesterday. Started a thread specific to this.

    Powerwall shipping delays?

    I am very early in a project to provide powerwalls for the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) here in Northern CA. My installer called me last night and said Tesla had called to inform them that there would be a significant delay in ordering powerwalls. Has anyone else received similar...

    California SGIP Equity Resiliency

    I have also just entered into a contract for 3 powerwalls. I am a High Resiliency candidate. I chose a local installer as they manage the entire project and are most familiar with local code requirements. They are also a certified installer. Interestingly, they are using a subcontractor...

    Air suspension kit Recommendations?

    My only real complaint about drivability is due to living on rural roads and the harsh suspension on said roads. I came upon a kit that looks good. Has anybody tried it or have other recommendations? Tesla Model Y Luxury Coilover Suspension Kit by Unplugged Performance

    Mirror auto-fold changes after update

    Thanks X-P, I might delete the profile and create one with a different name to be sure it doesn't "hold on to" old data.

    Mirror auto-fold changes after update

    My user profile seems to change after a software update. Specifically, my mirrors, which auto fold at home, do not unfold. I have to stop a short ways from my house, unfold the mirrors, turn off auto fold for the location. Then when I get back home, the mirrors do not auto fold. I have to...
