    NorCal Powerwall owners. What is your reserve percentage right now? (Late October 2021)

    I am up to a big 5.72kwh at 3:15. Clearly going to be the worst day of year so far. Big change from the 180kwh in the summer

    I guess when I am in storm watch, which all my gateways are in now, reserve level means nothing.

    NorCal Powerwall owners. What is your reserve percentage right now? (Late October 2021)

    I just raised mine to 100%. I got my latest bill and have a 3200 buck credit, so why be stupid. Use PGE and be ready if a power outage happens from the killer winds coming today

    Based on inputs, I turned on SW for my 3 batteries not at 100%, and it is working, 9.8 kw going to 3 batteries. Will turn off after full. Thanks

    NorCal Powerwall owners. What is your reserve percentage right now? (Late October 2021)

    So far had gotten to 100 by 3.. today with rain, only 90 by 3 for my heaters. Next two days could be much worse, Might have to adjust or just let batteries go way down. Risky with the wind coming

    Reconciliation Bill and Estimated Delivery timing

    I get 500 miles in my mini van, so its like 450's to Disneyland. So yep, I could do just 1 fill up when there if I wanted. We generally make a stop a little sooner for cheap gas, then eat at the same time. I hit a few rest stops for a break. Bottom line I never have to worry about finding a...

    NorCal Powerwall owners. What is your reserve percentage right now? (Late October 2021)

    Still have mine at 15%. So far, enough sun has come out to let me fill at 5 to 100%. But, Sunday will be the real test with all day killer rain clouds. I only got 33KWH yesterday, better today, but sunday will be test for least I expect.

    Reconciliation Bill and Estimated Delivery timing

    I could make it town on one tank, and back on another. 5 minute process. How many hours to recharge the batteries to get home. I have 7 and luggage, do you buy and drive 2 cars? Time wasted pumping gas? I could turn around and drive right back home, could you? Its great it works for you, I...

    Understanding PGE/SVCE electricity bills/TrueUP

    Nah, if you have the money, I would do the 17K system and 3 PW's. Adding the stuff after is basically impossible. And as codes change, you may not be even able to do it at all. And once folks have solar, batteries, it is amazing how we end up finding ways to use more electricity.

    Reconciliation Bill and Estimated Delivery timing

    Family trip car? This is why I would never get one. Drove to Disneyland and back with 7 folks and luggage in a minivan. 3 gas stops, total like 5 minutes each. NO way we could do that with ANY EV on the market...

    NorCal Powerwall owners. What is your reserve percentage right now? (Late October 2021)

    I still am at 15%, but with the rain and poor solar, the batteries will not recharge. Thinking up raising since going to pull from the grid one way or another, and why have dead batteries.

    Generac "solution" generator, panels, batteries

    I am going to start a tread about max/min I hit like 180kwh in June. Yesterday is was only 34kwh and today with more rain will be worse. I expect it might go down to 10kwh. Since when it gets cold my house with heat pumps might pull 60kwh per day, no way I have any batteries with such low...

    Latest PG&E Bill

    Am still waiting to get my billing updated for my 3rd true up with everything I have now. The first thing I look at is the allowed generation amount. So far it is not close to double what I had with first set of panels. But yep, it is taking 3 to 4 months to fully update. What is the current...

    Wow, those are wholesale rates, which seem to basically kill NEM. And since our solar does not do much in the winter, ....Hope PG&E does not do this

    Solar production getting worse in Bay Area, California

    Am at 21.4kwh so far. Shall be interesting starting friday with heavy rain how bad it gets. I had 5kwh one day last year with heavy rain. Going to have to adjust my battery reserve level soon I expect

    California bans small gas engines including gas generators

    So for all you folks that think this is great, question. What are all the fire fighters in california that use gas powered chain saws going to do when fighter fires. Yea, they are going to haul around tons of extra batteries. Yes, they can find power out in the middle of no where to recharge...

    Solar Panels Design

    Not suggesting, but, I have never heard a person saying they put on too many. BUT, I hear ALL the time, folks saying they wish they would have put on more. You do get 26% back

    Latest PG&E Bill

    No. But, each time something changes, one gets a new true up. So, I got my first true up for solar earlier in the year. I then put in the batteries, and started a new true up process. It took months and was not completed when I put in more solar panels which has started ANOTHER true up...

    Powerwall needed [Medical condition]

    For the medical need I have at my house, IMO, my generator provides me much better long term options than batteries. If we get into a long rainy spell, at least with my generator I know I can run it whenever I need it. We solar and batteries, I am not in the same level of control

    Solar production getting worse in Bay Area, California

    I would say California is the issue for we cannot keep power on, but lets force more things electric

    Solar production getting worse in Bay Area, California

    I have had my reserve at 15%. But, yep, with the rain coming, do not expect I can fully recharge the PW's, so the first time this happens, guess I will increase the reserve

    Solar Panels only generating about 60% [of peak production number]

    And for what is cost me to put all this solar on, so I could be a good green person and try to help the power not going out for those "poor" folks, ..... On one hand they put a bunch of rules in place to force people to go green, like all new houses have added cost for solar panels, but when...

    Tesla Solar and Powerwall Install Complete - SoCal Oct 2021

    My only point over time reading these ROI stuff is one can play with number to get any answer one wants. If one has the money, and taxes, why not go for it, 26% off. But, just put on as many panels as one can fit, and get approved.

    Solar Panels only generating about 60% [of peak production number]

    Actually, my current use for the last year, with PW's, is even smaller than my first 15kw of panels. I gave them my usage from over 2 years ago, before batteries or solar, which was off the scale because I was using 10 wall heaters.

    Tesla Solar and Powerwall Install Complete - SoCal Oct 2021

    So if your bill was 300 a month, and you saved 200 a month, so you still pay 100 per month? And then you paid the cost of the system? If this is correct, how is there any breakeven point? Or are you saying your produced enough solar to cover you 300 per month, plus send back enough to get...
