    Supercharger - Red Bluff, CA - South Main Street (LIVE 2 Jul 2022. 12 V3 stalls)

    @Big Earl @Chuq @corywright ^^^ Awesome! What did you see for the official name of this location in the app? Bruce.

    Supercharger - Vallejo, CA (LIVE 22 Jun 2019, 18 V2 stalls)

    There's a post this morning on the Tesla Owners East Bay Facebook group that "almost all" of the supercharger cables were cut here. :mad: Bruce.

    Anyone regret switching to electric heating?

    Not exactly addressing your point, but I remember thinking during the lovely PG&E PSPS events of 2019 and 2020 that it sure was great that we had natural gas for heating, water heater, and cooktop, because those could work more or less normally without using up our limited solar production and...

    Tesla Virtual Power Plant in CA

    Mine was approved sometime today, at least it's no longer pending. Looks like the post above. Bruce.

    My super charger rate reduced from 130kW to 58kW

    A few years ago the Supercharger behavior on paired V2 stalls changed, so that the "first car gets priority" rule no longer applies. Power is offered equally to both sides of a stall now. Whether you have free Supercharging or not is irrelevant. I'm sure many forum posts could be made about...

    Supercharger - Vallejo, CA - Solano Avenue (under construction Apr 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    Nice pictures! Looks like there are charger cabinets and pedestals for 20 v3 stalls. There's a lot of space between the two rows of stalls. I'll defer to others on the question of the Megapack. Bruce.

    Does Virtual Power Plant option require Gateway 2 ?

    Hmmm...I think for the VPP trial it was a fixed amount but it might not have been $2/kWh. Sorry, my memory on that is a bit hazy for various stupid reasons, but the rate is probably discussed in the "original" VPP thread. The check stub just shows a dollar amount, but not how it was derived...

    Does Virtual Power Plant option require Gateway 2 ?

    Yep. I got a paper check from Tesla in the amount of $57.72, mailed from "Tesla Energy Operations". I'm not sure why it works that way. Bruce.

    Supercharger - Jonesboro, AR

    Sorry for the delay, moved this thread per request. There isn't any moderator specifically tasked to handle Midwest or Southeast, so it falls to one of a few "Global Moderators" who have moderator privileges in all forums. Bruce.

    Does Virtual Power Plant option require Gateway 2 ?

    Yep, I have GW1 and PW2s. I participated in the VPP trial and even got a check from Tesla for it. I got the notification for the "real" VPP program (yesterday, iOS mobile app). I opted in out of curiosity, same as for the VPP trial. Assuming that it works as documented, it's basically zero risk...

    It doesn't seem that long ago that we were actually HAPPY about Gustine coming on-line. :) There's still significant work that needs to happen before Santa Nella goes live...paving and striping (although there are some Supercharger sites on unpaved lots), installation of the all-important...

    Supercharger - San Leandro, CA (under construction Apr 2022, 12 V3 stalls)

    I was driving past on 880 northbound yesterday...the pedestals are now clearly visible from the freeway. Also a green object that could have been a utility transformer. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures, and wasn't really in a position to investigate more closely. Bruce.

    Supercharger - Hayward, CA (LIVE 22 Jun 2019, 14 Urban stalls)

    There is a history of miscreants cutting the cables on Superchargers. It's not obvious whether this is to steal the copper in the cables, or just simple vandalism. In California, this has happened at Oakhurst and at Oakland (2nd St.), maybe other locations that I can't remember. Tesla servicing...

    Subsequent discussion has revealed that the vandalized stalls were at the Hayward Target store, which puts it squarely at the Hayward Supercharger site. Bruce.

    There's a post on a local Facebook group about a Supercharger supposedly in San Leandro, CA that had its cables cut last night ("at least two chargers"). But the photos show slight-worn Urban pedestals with boostback transformers on a concrete slab behind them, which doesn't match what I've read...

    If you really don’t like your Model S, and replacing it is feasible for you, you’d probably be happier selling it than keeping it. IMHO that’s independent of you posting criticism here, which you are of course free to also do. Everyone should respect other posters’ opinions. Posting feedback...

    New Powerwall Advanced Options [Toggles for charging from and discharging to grid from powerwalls]

    22.9.1 Note that some features aren't necessarily tied to a particular app or firmware version. In some cases there are minimum versions, but they might also depend on some backend configuration. Grid charging and export are two examples of this. Bruce.

    The PG&E VPP pilot program last year definitely paid out. I got a check from Tesla few months ago for my participation.
