    2 Months Since Net Metering was Rejected

    Anyone else having issues with the Permit Department with Tesla? I paid my first downpayment back in September and they finally submitted my net metering in early October. The Net Metering was rejected due to no electrical permit was attached. They said my county (Brevard) that the building...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I decided to give up on negotiating. When I signed the price increase "new contract" total price was I think $56k and $48k after rebate. Overall price when down due to oversizing and more of a rebate. $51.8k using old pricing = 11.69kw Roof (2850 sq ft total roof) + Powerwall 2/7.6 inverter...

    FPL PTO "System Size Must Be Reduced"

    I have not yet paid a down payment due to the damage that was caused to my house during the install. I am not going to pay the down payment until someone Tesla responds to what is happening. I was under the impression that I was able to get net metering, they should have made sure my...

    FPL PTO "System Size Must Be Reduced"

    The house we installed the solar roof we bought earlier this year, we do not have 1 year of tracking. The bill I uploaded was for a summer month. Gas Dryer + Gas Heater, so I was banking on the cooler months to rack up credits and leave my HVAC on 24/7 during the summer.

    FPL PTO "System Size Must Be Reduced"

    Had the Solar Roof Installed which ended up oversized 50%. PTO Net Metering draft says: "The system production is larger than your annual energy usage. The system size must be reduced prior to FPL approval." Took a look at the checklist on Tesla website and "approval to install" was never...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    Sent this to them. Rejected again. So new contract is $800 less but also $100 less in tax incentive so meh. Finally cost ~51k for 11.69kw Array and 1x Powerwall+. This also included free fascia, soffit, and landscaping damage lol. Still refusing to pay them a nickel until they "clean up" and...

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Took the battery down to 10% ish from 100%. Using actual miles driven, my 2018 M3 LR AWD gets around 345miles full charge per my driving habits. This involved going on the highway as well as local. Scared the crap outa me the other day when I switched to miles then charged to 100% (haven't...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I complained for the old pricing and my overall cost just went down 1k because my array was oversized from 7.25 --> 11.7 kW and I was given a free powerwall+. Not much a difference. So yes you can get the old pricing but they will charge you for any "freebies" they gave you. I'm going to try...

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Okay I totally freaked out because the M3 doesn't show the miles like my MS does. Switched back to %. Looks like I haven't really lost much range because I was still hitting "310" in January before I switched to %. M3: 100% --> 88% 46 miles driven. That gives me an effective range of 383 miles...

    Haven't charged this car to 100% in 4 months. Was going to see what the difference is between chill and sport mode, but the estimator is all funky which doesn't help.

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    2018 M3 LR AWD. Did I recalibrate wrong? Usually 90% is around 270 using %. Switched to miles and charged to full 100% today and its 280???? Full range I believe is 310.

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    10-30% less efficient is true. Comparing to Solar Panels at a nearby site with the same array size but are panels instead, I generally lag 20% less efficient comparing non peak times. That array gets max of around 10kw/h so the 7.6 I have currently now is pretty close. I'm probably only clipping...

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    @OY1836 yeah I agree you are at 1.25 dc/ac ratio so you're fine. If you add another inverter you will likely lose production from times outside of peak.

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    Eric = Powerwall Manager. Sean = Roofing Manager. I'm guessing you have one 7.6 too? I just cap at 7.7 and plateau for 3 hours. Inverter also has to restart for about 10 min always a little past 1pm.

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    Lack of PTO means my production just stops as a certain point. So my data is not great. I am at peace of mind knowing my setup will generate the same as year 1 as year 10 and year 20 with the oversize even if there is clipping. Also I have yet to have a smooth curve because its never not cloudy...

    Back to square 1.

    I did countless hours of research on this (see my annoying threads). So I'm assuming this is for solar panels and not roof. For the roof, I think one 7.6 inverter is enough. For panels you might want to consider Tesla 7.6 + 3.6. However just keep in mind this combo is at 1.13 DC/AC ratio so...

    Time Until Inspection?

    My install was finished for Solar Roof 11 days ago and all communications with Tesla has gone to crickets. The roof installer project manager hasn't answered my email in a week. I asked the electrical engineers when they were on site and they said usually around 2-3 days to inspection. I...

    Bought my first Tesla, but not new to Teslas, looking for some advice on floormats

    Go on Amazon and you can get a whole set for front back and the trunks for like $150. They are "branded" and fit to exact. Just read the reviews; I believe the brand I have is called "Superliner" after checking my purchase history.

    Need help deciding: 2016 MS 70 or 2020 M3 SR+?

    The lack of an instrument cluster on the model 3 is why I prefer my older model s as my primary vehicle. Just feels weird to see a dash. Model S drives like a luxury sedan; the handling is much different. However, you should just go with the Model 3 because its your first Tesla. A low...

    What could be causing this energy usage?

    I had some electrical work done today. A few of my breakers were turned off and turned on. This completely threw off the gateway/app somehow. Said I was drawing 7kw/h when really I was drawing less than 1kw/h. At 11AM I am usually generating over 6kw/h on a sunny day and the panels were only...

    Issue with Go Off Grid Function

    You can go off grid by switching the gateway off and leaving the powerwall+ on.

    New solar and Powerwall install, low production?

    -Edit misread, thought you had two powerwall+. Yeah that's fishy, something is something wrong. In LA you should be hitting 7.6 top. I'm get mid 20s on a cloudy day here in Florida (granted my array is larger).

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    well I spent over $500 a year on an un-used gym membership so $4k over 10 years is not much lol. Also if you sign a contract today they make you get the max size. I have gas heating/dryer so I have no need for such a huge installation to hit 100% offset. In the other thread I mentioned how they...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    Ended up being only $4k more after rebate. Added 4.2kw to my array / free Powerwall+ and 0.99% APR. Small change. I have no idea what they did but the rebate increased almost 9k.

    Advice on buying a used high mileage P90D

    Just make sure you check eve You're thinking too hard, just get the car. No one can hack the car so it displays something else lol. But since its a 3rd party just make sure they know how to look over EV cars because they are very different than ICE. For example as I said earlier that 125k...

    Advice on buying a used high mileage P90D

    Yeah you need to get the car transferred. If seems like the dealership doesn't deal with EV cars and has no clue what they are doing. I am 50/50 after recommending it now because what they should have done is transferred the EV to the dealer and then the dealer transfers it to you. I was under...

    Advice on buying a used high mileage P90D

    I am on MCU1 and have had thoughts to upgrade to MCU2. I have a Model 3 with MCU2 and honestly, MCU 1 is just slightly slower. The instrument cluster is peeling a little from the heat but other than that I don't have the issues that many here complain about. It's not that much slower than MCU2.

    Advice on buying a used high mileage P90D

    Couple of things to do. 1. Battery Degradation is at what %; also look under the car for the battery pack # and check online if its a reliable batch. Like everyone said here the 90 battery backs are one of the worst ones. 2. If Park Assist doesn't work I doubt AP1 is working; this could be a...

    How do I communicate with Tesla about my project?

    I would like to advise all of those that haven't gotten their contract signed to do it immediately because I just re-entered my address in the estimate tool and now they are forcing you to buy the maximum configuration; my install now is projected from 83k-110k for a 14kw-20kw roof with 2...

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    As of now you are generating close to 3kw/hr but I am at 2.3kw/hr at 8:50 so I think maybe the direction of my panels + location is giving me less overall. Its pretty cloudy here today. That site you shared actually is a great resource, once I hit PTO I am going to look at the data more closely.

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    30/23 = ~1.3 DC/AC ratio. I would loved to get mine to around there but unfortunately Tesla does not make an inverter that size.

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    So I decided to just stop asking Tesla for the extra 3.8. I figure a 1:1 dc/ac ratio is going to decrease due to inefficiencies because the smallest one is 3.8. It just makes me crazy when I see a 8kw array with 7kw inverter in the same area as me generating more kw.

    New Solar Panel Project

    I tested backup mode today and I am able to run/start my HVAC off the single powerwall+. However during a real blackout I will probably turn the HVAC off at night since it runs at 4kw/hr.

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    Are you on the power wall+ ? The project manager for power wall said for the power wall , clipping is when it keeps spiking down and not a flat line. I specifically asked about this. I don’t know if the power wall can continuously handle 7.6kw? I previously was under the assumption it plateaus...

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    i wanted another inverter and 2kw of array but they didn’t approve it. “FSD in 2 weeks” lol. it def looks like the inverter is maxing out and clipping, doesn’t look like it can even consistently push out 7.6. Granted it’s a slightly cloudy day. Just kinda pissed I'm better of an engineer than...

    11.6kw Solar Roof, but only one Inverter?

    Testing out my system, I hit 7.7kw by 11:30 AM. After hitting the 7.7 it goes down to 3 then 5 then back to 7.7 consistently. I’m just watching the screen to see if it ever can go to 8. What they promised me as overdrive sounds like pure BS at this point.
