    off grid test, app keeps alternating between off grid and grid outage?

    I believe that is normal with this software version. I see the same thing also. Makes no difference. I have been off grid since October without interruptions.

    Do you have enough solar to go off grid in winter?

    I live in CA and have been off grid now since October without interruptions. Winter is no problem. I have 14 kw solar and 4 powerwalls. House is 4200 feet, 3 ac units, 2 EV's electric dryer, electric oven and stove. rest is propane. I'm waiting for Tesla to improve the powerwall software before...

    From the Rivian Blog:.... Did you read the paper linked in the article? The whole point of the attack is that it is based exactly on how BLE works. The NFC cards are something different, and the fob may also be some other sort of radio, too. Phone-as-key could be vulnerable to this sort of...

    Time to start using your PIN to drive...

    I used to install car alarms when I was in college. This guy with a turbo porsche had me install the best I could find. Three months later his car got stolen. The thieves drilled into the battery and drained it so it wouldnt sound or report lojack. Then they put the car on a flatbed and towed it...

    14-50 on 100 amp breaker? Ok to use?

    The motors need to be on a different circuit from the plug. If not rewire as appropriate. Change the breaker and verify that the wire size is #6 copper or better. Sounds like you need a consultation with an electrician and this blog is not going to be sufficient to get your answers.

    Add more solar if you need a bigger car! If you make more electrons than you use, what does it matter anymore??

    Tesla has officially removed the mobile connector as a standard accessory with every new car purchase; now a $400 separate purchase

    The thing is even though I don't use the mobile connector much, the times I have used it, it was REALLY needed. The alternative would have been a tow to a charging facility. I hope Elon plans for the tow bills and upset customers in the coming years with these cars to increase.

    Having a mobile connector to be able to plug in anywhere is the answer to range anxiety. Whether it is used or not, every car should have one IMO.

    Did you request utility permission before installing L2 charger?

    What you do on your side of the meter is your business and NOT PGE! They permitted you for the amount on your meter 100 or 200A and you pay for that capacity. Use it as you see fit. Let PGE catch up. They oversubscribed the capacity in your neighborhood.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Russia will not run out of money until the US gets serious about limiting Russian oil. All of the sanctions we have imposed including SWIFT exempt Russin oil! If our government really had any backbone Russian oil sales would be banned.

    Elon Musk Says Tesla Cybertruck Could Cost a Million Dollars

    From Electrek: Just two days ago, Rivian announced it would be either increasing the price of reservation holder vehicles $12,000+ or making reservation holders wait until 2024 at the earliest and giving them a smaller battery with a slower drivetrain and only two motors. Not the type of note...

    CHAdeMO suddenly not communicating with public EV chargers -- HUH?!!

    There are firmware update to keep up with when using a Chademo adapter. They won't work right unless they are kept updated. Suggest you escalate to see if they will support the product that you paid for.

    I bought a 2022 Model S, does anyone know when i can expect title?

    In CA the title is sent to you directly. It usually takes 3-4 weeks, but covid has reduced their workforce. It may take longer. Once the paperwork is submitted to DMV, there is nothing Tesla can do to expedite.

    Model Y now unaffordable for most of us

    When you consider 6% inflation and the cost of the improvements that have become standard equipment, I think the price increase is fair. Some may want to wait for the 'EV for the masses' that Elon has been talking about.

    Found out Powerwall only install done by Tesla 4 years ago never received PTO from SCE [tesla produces pdf of prior authorization document]

    They changed the software recently after I told them I was adding a generator as a backup to go "off grid" and cut the cord. Other battery companies will allow charging from the generator. Generac for example.

    Found out Powerwall only install done by Tesla 4 years ago never received PTO from SCE [tesla produces pdf of prior authorization document]

    Except now California will not allow the generator, and even if they did, Tesla PW software will not allow your powerwalls to charge from the generator. https://rvmiles.com/california-generator-ban/ Reading: Propane and Diesel engines are exempted.

    Some 2022 Model Ys shipping with MCU3 (AMD Ryzen)

    I got the new lights, AMD and MCU3. I believe the dual window in the rear also scratch in paint that pissed me off…… set up with mobile repair, then they cancelled and they want me to bring it back to the service center! 8 hours of driving! I would have left it there and saved 4 hours!

    Maximum height for Powerwall? Tesla wants to cancel!

    Hold them to the Performance clause of their contract. Unless they have specific verbiage, you can threaten them with Non-Performance of their contract.
