    V11 2022.4.5 doesn't remember USB source

    Hey M3BlueGeorgia, I have similar setup as yours. Is your USB stick formated in Fat32 or ExFat? I tired both and having issue seeing my USB drive. So in my 258 GB usb stick, its formated with Fat32. Inside the stick it contains 3 folders. TeslaCam, MP3, lightshow. Sentry works great...

    $75.00 for a tire rotation!

    I buy all my tires from American Tires. Regardless if you purchase the tires from them, they will rotate the tires for free. If you ask nicely, they might even balance the tires. My model 3 just went over 7 k miles. I took it to American Tire and they rotated my tires for FREE. Yes the wait...

    Flat Tire & Roadside Experience and Tesla Service.

    I agree but don't understand why I see 4 others disagree. There's so many option than sitting around for 2 or 4 hours. Call AAA. Call any flat bed tow truck and tow it to a service center or even your home. Your insurance will cover the tow.

    Not bad on 8 years ROI. Thanks for the information.
  22. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    Good to know about degradation is about 1% per year. I think I was quoted something like .00 something per year for degradation but guaranteed no lost more than 2% per year. Holy smoke. Your average panel (130+144+200/3=158) 158 watt hr panel x 75 to 80 panels = ~12 kW system. That's a lot...
  23. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    According to Woferry, sounds like the sale pitch are the same 15 years ago is no different to what I am quoted on today. ie.... 12 years on invertor and 30 years on panels. Panels degradation is something like under 2% for the life of the panels on power generation. I am curious what Woferry...
  24. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    Curious... How's the panels power generation holding up? How much lost on power generation after 15 years? What was the watt hr per panel 15 years ago? 200 watt/hours?

    Is there a DIY for aligning headlights?

    only on driver side a lot more obvious then the passenger side. Was hoping if anyone try to fix it them-self.

    From my solar guy... 10 years ago they are very inefficient.

    Is there a DIY for aligning headlights?

    The headlight housing not seated/flush with the body

    Is there a DIY for aligning headlights?

    Anyone know who to fix that? My driver side headlight is off alignment more than my passenger side.
  29. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    I think it's silly to turn off the feed to the grid. That's credits being generated and Tesla can use the credits to offset supercharger cost when pulling from the grid.
  30. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    Invertor is warranty for 12 years. Panels are warranty for 30 years with a guarantee of no lost of power generation something like no more than 2% per year. That's all part of the package not a separate payment. But who's to say the company will be around for that long to honor that warranty...

    About $912 a month for the next two years. I decided to buy the system as oppose to lease.

    Well folks, I ended up going with Solarmax. Signed last week for a 6.9 kilowatt systems. Did not pull the trigger with Tesla Solar.
  33. Q

    What is your primary reason for wanting to own a Model 3?

    The phrase "Blood for Oil"
  34. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    Hey BM3B, I know they automatic switch you to TOU rate once you go solar. I am with SCE also, are you saying you are currently on TOU Prime .13 off peak and .38 peak. That's better than my current TOU-SDP (TOU with summer discount progarm), at .13, .24. .48 cents rate. I can see some saving...
  35. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    I hear you. I've been slicing and dissecting the benefit to go solar. I've come to a conclusion that it will take 10 years for ROI. The sneaky aspect is no one can tell me how much TOI rates are when draw from grid during the night time. Let's not forget about connection fee and administrative...
  36. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    So owning is an additional 3k for the breaker upgrade. $10,0000/3.8 = $2.62 per wh $10,000 = $3K (breaker upgrade) = $13,000 13000/3.8= $3.42 cents. That's higher then other solar quote I had.
  37. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    It's strange that if your rent they don't upgrade but purchase they force you to upgrade. In theory, if you currently have a 100 amps breaker panel and you have a extra slot for a 50 amps breaker that should do it. But keep in mind that most tesla owner already use up a 50 amps for the mema...
  38. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    Can anyone let me know either rent or owner, does Tesla upgrade your breaker panel to 200 amps included or is that extra cost.
  39. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    Yes there is a rent to buy options but that can get complicated. If you rent, off the bat you are out 3k and I am not sure if you qualified for your state 1k incentive. Tesla web site say if you rent follow by buy, there some pro-rating for you to claim that 30% tax stakes. I also heard...
  40. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    ouch - so many road block. Glad you already have a 200 amps panel. Most CA home are on 100 amp breaker. I think to rent or own in CA they will need to upgrade your breaker panel to 200 amps. That's an extra 2k for Breaker Panel upgrade. I think.
  41. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    @vickh - you are in AZ. I read somewhere that your state have a 1K incentive also. Why rent when you can outright buy it for 10k-3k (30% tax saving) and 1K off from AZ state. That put your 3.6 KW system for 6K. Don't have to pay for the $50 a month.
  42. Q

    Tesla now RENTS solar panels

    I am evaluating this. What is your normal utility bill per month and your average kilowatt consumption by day or month? is there extra charge if they need to upgrade your breaker panel to a 200 amps panel or that your current breaker panel is already 200 amp? Not sure if referral code work for...
  43. Q

    Can you buy too much Solar?

    If you under size it like 80%. I was thinking about that. I just don't know what my bills will look like. You have the connection fees plus all the other SCE fees. The connection fees could be as much as $300 a year ($25 per month) that's not including all the other SCE fees, taxes, and the...
  44. Q

    Can you buy too much Solar?

    So you still pay the minimum of $20 to $25 per month probably connection fees . Let's say $25x12 months =$300. They should of take the $900 credits and off set the $300 hence you should get a check for $600? Or at least roll the credits to next year. I say undersized the system a tad is the...
  45. Q

    Can you buy too much Solar?

    Let's not get too hung up on this. Tesla offer small/medium/large system rent or own. Small is 3.8 kW system basically it's a 12 panels at 300 ish watt panel and within an hour it can generate 300 watt hr per panel. If you really want to be technical it's 315 watt hr panel. Take 12 panels...

    Can you buy too much Solar?

    Thank you. Your feedback is very informative.
  47. Q

    Can you buy too much Solar?

    I don't fulling understand the wholesell of 3 cents buy back from SCE. How does this work? Currently I am on TOU without solar yet. Summer rate per kilowatt is: peak 2 pm to 8 pm = .48 cents off peak 8 am to 2 pm = .24 cents super off peak 8 pm to 8 am =.13 cents Let say the 3.8 (small...
  48. Q

    Can you buy too much Solar?

    Yes - Tesla is marketing the three solar size system. I am referring to the smaller 3.8 kilowatt hr system. Most appliance don't draw 6 KW. If you are thinking about charging your car sucking in 7 kilowatt/hr that's a different story. I'll pull that from the grind at night time on super off...
