    Tesla Solar in Houston & Surrounding Area’s

    Nah, where we are we pay 9 cents, and they buyback for 5 cents. If you can find a 1 for 1, thats great still. Texas is a net metering voluntary state so companies don't have to do it at all, may go away someday but likely 50% or so seems to be what most are going to. Can't help on the...

    Tesla Solar in Houston & Surrounding Area’s

    Yeah, they should charge fine on a sunny day, depending on how much energy your house is using. Our usually fully charge up by around noon even or 1PM at the latest on each side. 1 side is like 11kW of panels and 2 PWs, and the other is like 10kW of panels and 2 PWs, both charge by then and...

    Tesla Solar in Houston & Surrounding Area’s

    I’d say some basic advice from me is: 1) use the cheapest electric provider pricing, or plan that discounts nights if your going to use backup each night. Daytime you’ll use solar or have excess. 2) get at least 2 PWs, if ya have one AC and other electric stuff ya need two for them to turn on...

    Bad off-grid data?

    Having a hard time figuring out these bad estimates and data that show up in an outage or when off grid. 1. When off grid I show solar production which is bad since it’s 10:20pm hehe. 2. On the usage estimate, does that change real time or is it using historical data? E.g. in this pic if I...

    Austin Energy and Powerwalls

    Just Austin, not statewide. 45 minutes west of Austin here in Marble Falls with PEC - and its normal net metering. Austin is a special city in Texas, very Democrat led/liberal in nature, lots more regulations, permits, costs, restrictions, etc. It's a reason that we want that "Texafornia"...

    Does Tesla not sell Gateways with less than 2 powerwalls

    We have a similar system going in next week, 19.2kW and 4 Powerwalls, and seems 2 gateways so whole home is backed up. Question though - It seems that will require sort of a 2 homes view in the app? They said that it will basically be 2 separate systems, each with 2 powerwalls that they try...

    Wait times for Solar?

    Can't wait still, install is on 5/16 Powerwalls (1 day) and 5/17-5/20 Solar (4 days) soon. Been waiting since about October 2021 here.

    2 Powerwall+ vs 1 Powerwall+ and one regular Powerwall

    PW+ also has a limit of 4 powerwalls totally right now. Could get updated in future.

    Using 100% of the solar your panels produce [DC / AC ratio]

    I’d also say in Winter you will produce less and as panels degrade over the years so your ratio of use will improve over time.

    400A service - Tesla Roof - 4 Powerwalls - Whole home backup

    Tesla just canceled my order [on solar panels for a new house being built]

    Ah just wait until u can provide all pics of panel, roofline, AC units, etc. if doing panels. They will do a site visit assessment (or two) as well. We started ours as soon as I could get all those pics done. The electric bill can be an old one or just estimate if ya need.

    2nd Tesla Site Assessment Visit?

    Thanks, yeah it’s def the PWs some. Man I wished the bidirectional stuff was standard already - we are about to take deliver soon if a Hummer, has a good 200kWh pack in it.

    2nd Tesla Site Assessment Visit?

    Quick question, did any of you guys get notices from Tesla after their initial site assessment. We did all the online stuff, had a long initial site assesment where a guy came out, then got design, got install planned for May, but we have a 2nd site assessment tomorrow. I'm assuming this is...

    Value of a new 2022 Tesla Model S LR? Have to sell in month(s) ahead

    Thanks all, when sell in a bit appreciate the inputs. For now, going to drive it probably 500-1000 more miles it seems until Hummer comes.

    Value of a new 2022 Tesla Model S LR? Have to sell in month(s) ahead

    Hi, curious to what fair value is for a 2022 (Jan build) white Tesla Model S Long Range, upgraded 21" wheels, white interior, reg autopilot. Basically babied the car but there is likely a single paint chip on bumper or so from driving normal use. Car has 2000 miles now. Only upgrades are...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Our Jan build 2022 has been great so far white/white/21s, no issues. Actually going to be selling it around August/September I think as going to go ahead and take our 2022/23 Hummer EV1 that is due to be delivered then - confirmed the order recently with GMC and dealer. They are going retain...

    Rear Screen Stays on

    My rear screen is on all the time too when car is on. If you have the rear AC off, then it has a little power icon in back (unless have it locked) for passengers to turn on if want. Doesn't seem to be a bad thing that it is on all the time, but would be cool I guess too if only on when someone...

    Solar developments in short & long term

    I’d say: 1) panel efficiency will go up a bit, but 2) mainly larger cheaper storage in the form of your vehicle providing the equivalent of 8-10+ current powerwalls will be a great next step.

    Wait times for Solar?

    I’m assuming if we signed all the contracts and installment plan (we only put down 50% for now), that they are going to honor that pricing? We have just been waiting on an install day in May 2022 that was schedule 1-2 months ago.

    Wait times for Solar?

    Ours was started/ordered last Aug/Sep and is set for May install so about 8+ months - been a long wait.

    2022/2023 model s refreshed refresh changes?

    Curioius for thoes then with new S, without radar - does your display typically show cars in front of the car in front of you? I.e. big truck in front of you but it shows the car in front of that one? Mine does that with Radar right now - i.e. Elon says it bounces under/back or something in past.

    2022 MS Long Range - What you seeing?

    Oh yeah totally, I know I need to compare with the 21” states range. Nice getting an estimated 377 still I guess over that. With 19s wandering then of over the 405.

    2022 MS Long Range - What you seeing?

    Curious, after a couple thousand miles here on my 2022 long range, I’m still getting 265 at 70% and 377 at 100%. Not that you get that in reality but it’s what the car shows… no degradation yet. What y’all seeing?

    MODEL S REAR REFRESH FEB 2022

    Yeah lets see, haven't seen capacitive vegan leather yet ;-) but perhaps there just could be some pressure sensor in the assembly - will need to be sensitive as the logo area feels awkward to push for sure.

    MODEL S REAR REFRESH FEB 2022

    I call bs on the middle horn since Nov. If you push, there is no give/anything that seems would trigger a horn. Elon is likely talking out his [email protected]@.

    Value thoughts / Interest?

    Hey all, need to sell a 2018 Tesla Model 3 that bought back in December as a temporary car to use until our Long Range S came in. The S came in early so going to move forward selling the 3. Thoughts on value or asking price? Its a 2018 Long Range RWD, has 33765 miles on it, warranty until...

    MODEL S REAR REFRESH FEB 2022

    I have to say, while the lights probably look cooler being more blended/less LED like, I think I like the old design better. The black Tesla bar looks sharp on the new 2021/2022s really. I like it a lot on the white 2022 MS we have, better than this more body colored version coming out...

    Discussion: "Powerwall +"

    Tesla is moving super slow now, no communication, etc. Our project had system design approved last year, and our utility approved the project to install last Nov/Dec (and they charged us their fees). Now here we are with Tesla like 60 days later without a peep of communction, no responses to...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    I picked up my long range today, an NF467 VIN in Austin. The pickup did not go totally smooth as after accepting delivery on my app the car did not add to account. So here I am standing in a cold church parking lot alone on hold with Tesla vehicle services since SC doesn’t answer for like 30...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Killing me. Picking up tomorrow. Paid. Knowing car is here waiting ha. Wished I lived closer to the SC and I'd try to scope it out in advance but its a good hour+ away. Ug.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Well, I guess I can get excited now as the delivery center said we are still on for picking up our MSLR day after tomorrow on Thursday. I'll try to also report back with some findings/learnings as I know I enjoyed reading those in the past - good and bad.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Still on track to pick up my NF467 VIN this Thursday. RN1150 end of April 2021 order. Anyone else on here by chance picking up at similar time?

    Change it to cash for now. They can change it back to financing in about 10 seconds once you get a VIN.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Super nice, enjoy! Love the blue too - it was blue or white for me. I'm still surprised that its the back truck floors and parcel cover that are still missing always - those are pieces of the car that should be easy to produce but they must have a messed up supplier right now for sure.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    This thread can be both. There are a lot of us Long Range customers waiting though so may be the most right now, definitely if you see an older RN like RN1149/RN1150 at this point getting and EDD, its from an old April-May 2021 order that is likely a long range.

    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    Nice, that's a ways out for sure - maybe it'll bump forward a bit even. We got ours 2 weeks out and they stated could come in early and deliver early if we are open to it... will see.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Nah, it does horrible in rural areas too. Have it on the Model 3 we have right now - horrible, would have killed me every day at this point more than once on a simple rural drive into town and back. Anything beyond basic autopilot lane steering is worthless right now on a Tesla - if standard...

    Early '22 Exterior Refresh Tracking (Lights, Charging Door, Appliqué delete)

    Agree, I like the back as is with the black bar, but the more modern blurred tail lights would be cool. For headlights, I'd really like those though - I live where it is pitch black, rural Texas, and lights definitely help every single night (avoiding the tons of deer we see each night, etc.)...

    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    Well that would be cool. That gives me SLIGHT hope that a recent S VIN that I got, a 467 perhaps could have updated lights still but I'm not expecting it. ;-) Man, I wish they would just do a stupid flyover with better quality and zoom in on an S!!! That or you would think it would have...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    For scheduling my EDD it seemed different. I had an update to EDD of Jan 20-27 one AM, then a few hours later Tesla sent a text saying congrats your EDD has been scheduled. They auto scheduled me for a 1/27 date at 3PM, didn't get any say in it. I mean I probably could have got a different...

    Sweet, in TX here too - have a delivery appointment set for January 27th here. EDD was 1/20 - 1/27 - so I'd love if they said hey, come and get it earlier if possible and works out. Enjoy up there in Dallas. We do some weekends up there in the "big city" at times as live down in the hill...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Your a RN1152 and not in CA, so I'd expect you will be around Feb/Mar... RN1150 here and we are getting end of January with others also Jan/Feb. You could fall into Mar for sure, hopefully not April if they keep pumping them out in volume now.
