    Tesla Energy App inaccuracy

    It is probably a configuration error with the current transformers

    Solar production getting worse in Bay Area, California

    I was told by a former CDWR water controller that he believes the flow is about 1.5 mph on the aqueduct. I would think that would be calm enough unless it has to be almost still water.

    Solar production getting worse in Bay Area, California

    They should call it how to make a lake totally suck! I could see something like that on the California Aqueduct.

    Using powerwalls for load shifting only

    Based on what you want to do I would say you probably will want to wait and see what happens with Tesla and the VPP in California. It looks like there is at least somewhat of a push to change the tax credit to allow Powerwall's with solar to grid charge but still get the tax credit. I do not...

    Using powerwalls for load shifting only

    You can still sign up for EV2-A. You cannot sign up for EV-A it was discontinued for new customers. EV-A had a longer peak time during the week 2pm-9pm, partial peak 7am-2pm and 9pm to 11pm, and a short off peak time 11pm-7am. It had a super cheap (for PG&E) $0.14384/kWH during off peak hours...

    Powerwall only no solar, Tesla app fails to charge batteries during off peak

    You might want to read your comments again. If you don't see that you were trolling me well I don't know what to tell you. Most likely you are just a Tesla Fanboy, who is in denial that this entire issue was Tesla's fault, not the CPUC or PG&E whom you really really wanted to blame!

    Random question for you all with 60A SquareD Disconnects (eg DU222RB)

    Disconnect freak :D you should look at some 500kV motor operated disconnects on the YouTube, you can watch sparky sparky's fly!

    Powerwall only no solar, Tesla app fails to charge batteries during off peak

    The system works exactly as I described, now that it actually works. It starts to charge to full as soon as off-peak period is hit, it discharges all the way down to reserve during peak period. I have only been using 5 kW per day due to being evacuated and it still charges to full each night...

    Powerwall only no solar, Tesla app fails to charge batteries during off peak

    After 68 days nearly 10 weeks, talking with Tesla support multiple times, having the issue escalated to Tier 2 support, having the issue escalated to Engineering support for almost 7 weeks I contacted Tesla support one last time on September the 2nd. I told the Tesla support individual my...

    V4 of app drops Balanced/Cost Saving (Advanced Time-Based Control) options. Replaced with Time-Based Control

    Any ideas if this might fix my powerwalls not charging from grid during off peak times? Again I do not have solar so obviously the powerwalls have to charge from the grid.

    Three weeks post Install Questions

    What is your reserve set at? NVM you said they are drained. Two PW's have 27 kWH of power. Your home is using 30/kW while your solar is generating or about 3 kW/hour. If your AC and pool pump are not running much at night you should not be draining your PW's. Check your utility hourly meter...

    Multiple EV charging setup in Northern Calif? Can someone recommend an installer?

    I thought you were banking the excess solar for your winter heating bill?

    Multiple EV charging setup in Northern Calif? Can someone recommend an installer?

    If I had your setup and money to burn I would get the Ford F-150 Lightning with a bi-directional 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro. Getting it to work nicely with Tesla, goodluck haha.

    5 battery install Lake of the Pines

    It must be available with any solar + powerwall installation. That is cool for those that want to try it.

    5 battery install Lake of the Pines

    I am not sure with SGIP on the powerwall's that you can sign up for VPP. I know that I cannot, but I am a powerwall only install, which apparently is kind of like being a unicorn.
