    "No Products Found" [in tesla account, question about solar gateway]

    Hi all - just received PTO a few days ago (16KW, no powerwalls). When I launch the Tesla app, I get the error message "No Products Found" , so it seems the Tesla gateway is not communicating? The inverters both show production, and the Neo gateway has a single solid light with no error messages...

    16.32KW System Requires 2 Inverters?

    Thanks Wayne. That's really very helpful... I'll play around in PVWatts, but that's exactly what I anticipated. One last question for everyone - is there a panel separation limit by which they would have to recommend a second inverter? As you can see in the proposed layout, I have 3 banks of...

    16.32KW System Requires 2 Inverters?

    Thanks - I appreciate the offer to do the analysis as I'm not yet familiar enough with PVWatts to navigate this. Here's the layout: Zip code: 01951 Group 1: 27 Panels = 9.18KW Tilt: 20 degrees Azimuth: 80 degrees Shading: 93% unshaded yearly average Group 2: 16 Panels = 5.44KW Tilt: 20...

    16.32KW System Requires 2 Inverters?

    That's really helpful, thanks. I don't really have any shading issues, but the bulk of the panels will be east-facing, with the balance north-facing, so it's definitely not ideal. I suppose I will experience some clipping in the summer-time, but is that offset enough for you by the added...

    16.32KW System Requires 2 Inverters?

    It is based on net monthly consumption: (Total electricity consumed in a month - total electricity generated in a month)

    16.32KW System Requires 2 Inverters?

    Thanks. You are right that I am still eligible for net metering, but in MA, if you go over 10KWAC with your system, the rate at which they credit any over-production drops from the retail rate ($.19-$.25) to just $.04 per KWH. It's a big drop, and only worth it I'm consuming most of what I would...

    16.32KW System Requires 2 Inverters?

    Thanks for the reply. I was told the net metering cap is based strictly on the system you install, not on actual production. Exceed 10KWAC with your system and you only get the wholesale rate for your net metering. That's not to say you get nothing back in credits... in MA. the wholesale rate is...

    16.32KW System Requires 2 Inverters?

    Thanks for the reply. You're absolutely right... The representative I was speaking to didn't seem to know anything about flexibility in the system specified. You would think they would recommend 44 or 45 panels to keep me under the 15.5K input and allow me to use the SolarEdge10000 to stay under...

    16.32KW System Requires 2 Inverters?

    Thanks for the reply. The 11.4 still has me running into the 10KW net metering cap in Massachusetts, so it doesn't really solve the problem. The 10K unit would probably be ideal, but I'd have to back off to 15.5KWDC (45 panels), otherwise I'd be maxing it out.

    16.32KW System Requires 2 Inverters?

    Hi all - First time stumbling upon this forum. I'm in the middle of the process, having just received permits and now awaiting installation timing. In the final design recommendation, I was surprised to see that the team recommended 2 SolarEdge7600 inverters for this install, for a total AC...
