    National and State Renewable Energy stats

    what I meant was…the index shows for all other states that there is never a moment that renewables arent working in some form, however tasmania underperform here because their greatest renewable isnt considered in the index. Yes the water never stops flowing, which means tas have 0 minutes of no...

    National and State Renewable Energy stats

    I think the SNSWNB index needs a WNF, or water not flowing, in fairness to tasmania. Interesting seeing the day and night data. Seems SA has that balance near perfect, just needs more solar and more wind infrastructure to increase the total output.

    Safe Powerboard or Double Adapter for Universal Mobile Connector

    OP: I have an M3 and a garage with only one power point. Right now that power point charges the electric garage door. I’d like also to be able to use that PowerPoint to charge my M3 using the Universal Mobile Connector.

    installing EV charger apartment complex

    Just a thought, but do the management committee of the strata have the right to decide on significant new policy on behalf of owners? Shouldn’t EV policy be something that goes to a special meeting of owners who recieve facts about safety as well as likely future sales / rent gains mentioned by...

    installing EV charger apartment complex

    Good luck with your Court appeal. The response by the body corporate on what they will accept needs some work but isnt completely unreasonable. The excuses by them are silly but the outcome is surely palitable?. Unless you plan on emptying your battery every day you simply will not need 3 phase...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Decent release notes is not a tesla strength. You could see the release note repeated for multiple updates. Presume tesla think that is better to the previous approach, which was blank release notes.

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    I noticed a new error message today, presumbly part of one of the many recent bug fixes. Essentially the camera system was not operational due to glare or dirt on the left side. It was sun glare, low winter midday sun knocked out the autopilot camera system. Seems like a significant problem to...

    Does anyone have a solution for activating seat heaters (model s) without turning on the aircon to get to them? Not sure why tesla think this is a good idea. Also does it in the app. If I turn on seat heater it also activates a nicely chilled blast of air.

    Ev charging in the next 1-2 years

    in SA we often have too much solar during the day, so EV charging by any method actually helps the grid. The world just needs to increase renewables and encourage daytime charging.

    Ev charging in the next 1-2 years

    Unlike petrol cars, you can fill an ev at home or at work with nothing more than a powerpoint. You cannot therefore use petrol car thinking in imagining the numbers of chargers required. Many EV’s will simply never use a public station.

    Best Way to Get Rid of the Old Non Tesla Car

    I’ve always done well selling on carsales. I tend to list the car a week before the new one arrives, figuring if it goes early I’d just hire a car for a week. Given the current demand its likley to sell quickly If you price it correctly.

    LFP. Weekly Charging vs Daily Charging

    Once you know your car battery type, read the tesla manual issued for it, and follow tesla’s charging guidance

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    No such source as such an event has never occured. Latest release means the pinch to zoom on the map now works and stays large….sometimes. Other times the map stays locked and the car moves off. at least it was good for 3 updates before tesla broke it again.

    Tesla Energy Plan / Virtual Power Plant (South Australia)

    Involve the retailer now if you want a faster response from Tesla. Tesla care about the retailers as they are the buyers. The VPP works as you are expecting, and I know someone with it. Its worth noting though, I did my numbers with Energy Locals and the non VPP plan was vastly superior to the...

    Tesla Energy Plan / Virtual Power Plant (South Australia)

    I’ve had several dealings with the tesla powerwall call centre, which is usa based not australia based, and my only conclusion is that they all outright lie to avoid work. I have emails from the same person the same day giving two completely different excuses on why my clearly malfunctioning...

    Labor Electric Car FBT discount

    Suggest you read the fine print: As part of the Discount, Labor will exempt many electric cars from: note the word ‘many’. So probably just the cheapest two. Its clearly for them to say later “but we didn’t say all” Election promises from any pollie tend to not happen often.

    National and State Renewable Energy stats

    I like the SNSWNB index. It shows that other than in hydro tasmania, the other states were always able to generate renewables, although maybe not to the level desired.

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    I have two model S, same age, delivered together, same options other than wheel size. One has advanced on and the other off. this year updates have arrived to both at the same time. Last year it was mostly ’standard’ that recieved them first, by a day or so….but not always. That button doesn’t...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    I’d prefer the dock at the top. When driving looking down to find a button whilst maintaining no road vision doesn’t seem well thought out, whilst across the top where you can still see the road are functions that you probably wont use whilst driving.

    Tesla no longer including mobile charger bundle?

    Just buy whichever connector and/or cable works for your needs after you order the car. I‘ve never even opened the still sealed bag to 4 UMC’s in 8 years. I’m sure I paid for them indirectly.

    Bug report is a marker in the very significant amount of data produced and stored every minute. If you have an issue do a ‘bug report’ (saying anything is pointless), note the time, and then do a service report and tell the engineers the problem, the time, and that you left a marker with a ‘bug...

    Cracking / tapping type noise around doors - Model 3 2022 RWD

    I had a noise I was convinced was the seatbelt or glovebox. It never repeated with the tech in the car. I suggested he went alone, he came back and thought it was more likely the suspension. Turned out enough weight in the car and the problem wasnt there. It was the front suspension, which is...

    Turning on heated seats without turning on A/C

    you can go to the app and with the aircon off select a seat to heat. It then instantly turns the aircon on at what it is set at. Its just tesla engineers deciding they know whats best for us. I use my seat heater to keep takeaways warm on the way home, even in summer.

    Fuel excise reduction / ZLEV road-user charge

    The best way to deal with fit 0.06 is to not export. Get another ev and some batteries.

    Fuel excise reduction / ZLEV road-user charge

    Fuel excise is a federal tax. EV taxes are a state tax. This situation shows why EV road user charges need to be a federal tax not a state tax. Regardless with current petrol prices your EV is way out in front On an operational cost per km basis

    Auto High Beam ceased working

    My high beam works great. When I want it my hand pushes the stalk forward, and does the opposite when not required. I can’t be bothered with some programmer in another country deciding I cannot use high beam at low speeds or under certain conditions.
