    Considering going with backup only vs self powered

    I had my PTO 20 days ago and have been on self powered. I will probably switch to backup based on the information this thread provided since I am with FPL based on net metering 1:1 Sounds like powerwalls are money wasted for someone residing out of hurricane territory but the ability to operate...

    Considering going with backup only vs self powered

    Superb post. I have the exact system size system, powerwalls and same power consumption as well as being in Florida. I have been having this debate regarding backup only Vs self powered. Are you still doing this? Do you discharge the powerwalls here and there?

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    Again I want to thank everyone for the great input! Exactly what I expected. As noted earlier I have a model 3. I live in Florida and I want a backup energy source as well as solar production What is curious is I had a 25KW generac generator that died which powered both panels without...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    I am already paying a small fortune. At least if it has a cost I could make a decision. I still think they didn’t properly check what was on each panel and this decision should have been made ahead of time ( like I didn’t have months and months) and the powerwall being outdoors installed not...

    I couldn’t open the attachment and thread doesn’t mention island mode or surge shield.

    I just saw the installation plans and they do have 3 powerwalls and 1 powerwall separately. Mongo as you said they can’t change it.

    No he is not, all this time he has been installing solaredge things. spoke to Remote manager. After lengthy discussion ( I don’t want a pool pump with a powerwall and 5kw of solar ) we may do what you suggested keeping 4 powerwalls together. But He says we need to submit again permit to have 4...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    I am thinking of maybe installing/placing an object such as a tree bush, scarecrow in front of the power walls to block some of the sun, it gets very hot here in Florida.

    There’s only one gentleman working on electrical side (not solar installation)he is not an engineer, I told him exactly what you advised me Mongo. He wants to install surge shield even with 4 powerwalls. Thanks a lot for the help in such a short notice.

    Thank you very much for the very informative posts. I will make sure to check shield works based on above post. At this point in time they are probably going to have to sit in the sun. I don’t see the crew restarting in the garage. But at least I learned they were installed there because...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    I found out Main A runs only the pool and nothing else until AFTER they installed the powerwalls. I really didn’t know how my house was wired. I was shown 2 gateways on Tesla app : one with 3 and another with 1 powerwall I inquired how come I had such a setup. Aren’t 4 together easier ? 30%...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    Could the longevity Be better being inside vs outside in direct sunlight 6 hours a day? I have plenty of space in the garage. This is expensive gear and the whole systems is not cheap. Do they really need to be next to The main panel? My garage is 60 feet away. If it was possible to run a cable...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    Thanks for the prompt replies. I really appreciate it. I will discuss with them since they will be coming. I am not interested in backup power for the pool. Like MP3Mike said I would rather have 4 parallel for the house. So 15 kw together for one panel maybe not possible but 4 powerwalls...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    Tomorrow is day 3 of my install Florida I signed up for solar 15 kw and 4 Powerwalls. My meter happens to be opposite to my garage divides into Panel A and Panel B. Panel A only runs the pool Panel B which goes all the way to the garage runs everything else including 2 air conditioners well...
