    SCE TOU Prime - Does it require panel upgrade?

    i have switched to prime from an older non tou and then to 4-9 with sce no mention of any panel specs .. prime does require you have a battery or a plug in car or one of many other qualifying items ... oops as i just noticed @jjrandorin listed in more detail .. .....although sce never asked me...

    Wall connector [Can a wall connector be disconnected and taken with you when you move?]

    Agree …I’m chuckling right now thinking of all the petty things I have seen buyers and occasionally sellers dig their heels in over on relatively pricey home sales in CA 🤣 i think some ppl get into that “I have to win” mentality and lose all grasp of common sense

    Lets see pictures of who has the most crazy blade disconnects

    supposedly some areas do allow copper gas pipe but has to be marked as compatible for gas ( ive never actually seen such pipe) .. some of these state no solder joints or some i have been told allow pure silver solder only ... was told the odorizer added to ng corrodes soldered unions and...

    Lets see pictures of who has the most crazy blade disconnects

    agree some of the worries new codes w/ ess seem .. arbitrary or knee jerk .. thats why i thought inspector may freak out about a gas line running near the battery(s) .. no rational reason I could think of to be worried / heat required to damage black pipe ... you would have much bigger problems...

    Lets see pictures of who has the most crazy blade disconnects

    pic even makes gas pipe appear copper and possibly soldered at some joints .. if so this is a no and a further no no in most of CA unless things have changed recently in code .. but maybe pic is deceiving

    Lets see pictures of who has the most crazy blade disconnects

    I can’t tell 100% from pics but that looks to be ng tankless water heater and that pipe running underneath power walls I first assumed cold water supply to such … but from trying to zoom in appears to be the gas line into the tankless ?? Am I seeing this correctly?

    Tesla energy portion gone from Tesla app

    During about half the call with rep he was clicking away at keyboard and at times talking me through / talking to himself about what he was seeing / doing ( other half he had me on hold once he figured out the issue of a typo on my account email) anyway he gave me impression that the account...

    Tesla energy portion gone from Tesla app

    so this was solved .. how solved not that interesting called energy support (duh) pressed final option for powerwall support (not app support) reason the support tech gave was that my account email was entered incorrectly in one of their systems .. he stated recent updates ... they had added...

    As title states about 12 hours ago energy section from app disappeared, car still shows but cannot swipe to see energy section app. I waited overnight too see if it was just a Tesla thing and would work itself out .. found short thread where someone advised to sign out app/ remove app sign back...

    Model 3 normally charges at 237-239v but at 231v now?

    this worried me as well when i first had my model 3 and home connector .. when maxed out at 48amp the pattern i see is winter spring months low as 240v high as 246v .. summer time high as 241v low as 236v ..(we have gas heating in this area in winter and hot summers for AC use) lowest voltages...

    PW owners, summer is coming/here. What is your reserve percentage?

    yes mine is enabled as well .. i did not see anything in my paperwork from SCE (utility) stating I could not ... though I did just quickly read through it when the app enabled this feature
  22. Electrph

    PW owners, summer is coming/here. What is your reserve percentage?

    i dont personally have option to export from batt only new option to charge from grid outside of storm watch i believe system would export to grid until peak time is over or you hit reserve whichever happens 1st .. others may be able to give real world use answers
  23. Electrph

    PW owners, summer is coming/here. What is your reserve percentage?

    timely question .. now that I can charge from the grid and i switched to time based controls from self powered my reserve seems less important .. lowest it hits is ~ 72% from running exclusively on batt 4-9 .. then at 8am powerwall charges up to 100%

    New Construction - Conduit prep for future panels and PW setup

    this is probably the conensus you'll read on these boards .. crews are often amazing usually at least very good .. Tesla itself is usually a S show 😝

    Did you request utility permission before installing L2 charger?

    i installed level 2 tesla charger myself w/ supervision from electrician relative .. had local county inspect / approve (this was mostly my peace of mind / homeowners insurance) .. only way i can see utiltiy caring is if your L2 (as stated above) puts you over total panel capacity .. even then...

    bollards on garage side wall in Riverside county, ca?

    your pw placement is almost identical to mine ..(if i squint my eyes and pretend you have an unfinished garage and standard concrete floors 😤) .... point is wall of powerwalls are at least 2 feet back from car door garage . even with 6" thickness of pw you would have to veer to left coming in to...

    bollards on garage side wall in Riverside county, ca?

    I think what chaps my and maybe other’s hides, these are not installed in public areas .. these are people’s private garages. If you cannot manage to not ram into essentially what is your own wall at speed … I think you need more than a bollard in your life ..I and many I know have somehow for...

    Powerwalls in standby mode since app update

    If its a gateway 2 has recessed “Click” type button in a hole can’t miss it … I find plastic or wooden chopstick works great the full restart process should be on tesla website that’s where I found it basically you are shutting off solar at inverter / shutting off inverter breaker shutting off...

    Powerwalls in standby mode since app update

    As above try doing a “full reboot” of system this happened to my system after a powerwall ? update .. stuck in a loop that resulted in batts standby Rebooting just the gateway did not fix problem .. had to shut down everything (main breaker and all) then after restart working normally

    SolarEdge Inverter Replacement

    Tesla solar installed today. Can I turn on

    with just solar unless there is a setting in the tesla to prevent export to grid (i'm not familiar with non pW tesla systems) it would be difficult to not export .. you would have to run the pv (panels) only when your household consumption is higher than you pv production (not very practical)...

    Tesla solar installed today. Can I turn on

    do you have power wall(s) ? if so as stated above you can turn off main service breaker (to grid) and "island" you system . zero chance of exporting if you are a zero risk person like me if you like to live dangerous . . you can just switch it all on and export / claim ignorance if anyone calls...
  39. Electrph

    Tesla solar installed today. Can I turn on

    i don't think the home gateway or any system I know of would know not to export to grid due to work being done upstream ... if grid is available and there is excess pv it will export

    Tesla App connection down (California)

    yes in hindsight 3 pw would have fit perfect on wall and a loaded roof of pv panels would have been awesome ... but could be worse we could be saying "i wish i would have bought that tesla system last year before prices went up / nem maybe changed / e rates up"
