    Solar Glass Snow Avalanches

    SOLAR ROOF AVALANCH PROBLEM: For those of you mourning the loss of your now horribly overpriced Solar Roof (like me), this tidbit may console you. I live in Pennsylvania. A neighbor of mine had solar roof v3 installed over the winter. I won't get into the details of the install but suffice...

    I notice in your profile that you have 5 Powerwalls and a Honeywell Generator. Can you explain your rationale for that? Did you have the generator before you installed solar and PW?

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I have been considering a purchase Tesla Solar Roof since February of 2018 when I put in an order for Solar Roof V1. The eventual price estimate (which I did not receive until April of 2019) was laughable-$184,041 for a 23 kW system with 1 Powerwall. I cancelled my reservation and waited. Fast...
