    Tesla Solar in Houston & Surrounding Area’s

    They did when I ordered mine so something must have changed. I haven't been on the site in a while so I need to take a look at that.

    My system is clipping on 12.6kw system with 7.6 inverter

    Yeah, that looks pretty bad, but I know there are a few threads discussing this type of issue here. Check them out, you might find some direction or approach to resolve. My system is smaller, but I have two inverters.

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure how things are configured with a Powerwall or if a Neurio device is even utilize in the fuse box. What's the configuration like? with this thread all things lead to the CT's needing to be moved and or reconfigured.

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    You might need to get creative reversing more than one CT. Wish Incould help more but mine is very simple in comparison.

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    Swapping them is a part of it but one CT needed to be reversed as well. Sounds like you have a more complex setup than I do with only two CTs. These devices from Tesla are messed up. They had no idea why my configuration was working and they were on-site looking at it. Try reversing one of the...

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    Well the expected behavior part was the absolutely ridiculous energy reporting at 12:01am everyday. It’s not accurate it I live with it and use other tools.

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    Yes that’s the CT issues I had to work through that corrected the problem, #15. The other issue that occurs just after midnight is expected behavior per Tesla and not an issue. I now also run the Sense monitoring tool side by side with Tessa’s solution.

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    When the Neurio was rebooted it really didn't help at all. I did bounce both inverters and now it does seem better but I had lost the sun so will validate tomorrow. Yes, the Sense has been pretty reliable and tracks very close with my utility. Close enough I can estimate/track my bill each...

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    Here we go again. Looks like real time data issues again from my Tesla Neurio device. The information is off with my Sense solution (solar high, home low). Trying to quantify now and will try a robot but anyone else seeing strange real-time data? Tesla might be adjusting something but unsure at...

    Tesla Inverter cooling Noise

    Yes I remember that one. I’ll go back and take a look but I’m not having any performance issues. Sure would like to head them off early though.

    Tesla Inverter cooling Noise

    I have two Tesla Inverters side by side on the south side of my house. Just like all the others the fans can get pretty loud but there is also that gurgling noise as well. In my case I have it in one but not the other. Almost sounds like an car radiator boiling the coolant. Reached out to Tesla...

    Having a 12.75kW grid-tie system installed; how do I have to have it designed to have 2-3 PowerWalls added later?

    When mine was installed they added or installed a junction box where all the power converged from the utility. I was told that when I get a Powerwall that box would be replaced with the gateway. For now all it does is split off the power and my CT’s (Neurio)are install at the location as well.

    Neurio Wifi antenna inside panel in new untested install

    The Neurio device will most likely work fine with the Antenna inside of the beaker box depending on how close it is to the inverter. I'm sure they tested it because it needs to be paired with the inverter. This device does not interface with your home based WiFi. It connects directly to one...

    Tesla Energy App inaccuracy

    Ah so you have a Powerwall so you do not have a standalone Neurio device? I think or thought that was built into the Powerwall somehow.

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    Your setup looks to be very close to mine. The picture with the CTs is a little close to tell where they connected them. I had a couple of issues. 1. The CT’s weren’t installed close enough where the grid power started. 2. These new Neurio devices are mess up and who know how. You’ll need to...

    Tesla installed strings in parallel on 7.6 Inverter

    I think they can use them they just didn’t in your case. The conduit issue seems like an excuse. All of them are used on my 7.6 inverter.

    Brand new system and baffled with energy usage

    I had to go through some education on what it really meant when my AC unit came on and was drawing 2800 watts. My home also in Texas was using a ton of electricity compared to others our size. Like over 20,000 kWh per yr. One thing that helped me was the Sense Energy monitoring device that was...

    Solar production getting worse in Bay Area, California

    I'm not in California but see the same thing really in Texas. I contributed the drop off to the heat and the impact of the panels efficiency.

    Tesla Inverter not RGM-capable [RGM = Revenue grade meter]

    Ah right, we have two installed that meters solar and the other is just the revenue or consumption along with to grid. Apparently even in my state it varies with each city.

    Tesla Inverter not RGM-capable [RGM = Revenue grade meter]

    Thanks for the heads up. This will probably be when my Neurio workaround will stop working 😢 (if it’s pushed). The configuration isn’t anywhere near standard.

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    Awesome, I hope that works for you long term. When I did that it only helped for a few days and created other issues. If I remember correctly I needed to reboot it every few days. Wasn’t going to work long term.

    8.1 kW system daily production?

    Hello, that actually looks pretty good based on the system size you stated. I know there are tools others utilize to estimate the output that might be helpful. This is extremely close to folks I know with non Tesla based systems around 8-8.4kw. My 11.2kw system will hit north of 10 on a clear...

    Possible CT Issue?

    Maybe the Neurio/Blaster is now defective or going bad. Not sure if Tesla can check them remotely or not.

    Is the Federal Tax Credit Basically a 10 yr Loan at 0.99%?

    Right that would do it or not withholding any taxes from retirement distributions to create the liability.
  26. MCNE

    Is the Federal Tax Credit Basically a 10 yr Loan at 0.99%?

    I’m not sure it works that way. If you have more than you need for the liability it gets carried over to the next tax yr. I’m not a tax expert either but that’s the way it worked out with my tax evaluation before I bought the system. I’ll have like $1500 that will be carried over.
  27. MCNE

    Is the Federal Tax Credit Basically a 10 yr Loan at 0.99%?

    Yeah but the tax credit applies to your tax liability correct? I had to create that liability so that the credit isn’t wasted and not used. Net, they won’t be sending me cash.

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    That sounds about right with the scheduling from what I experienced but they might call and move up the timeline as they did with me. Honestly, even when the Tesla tool is working the reporting has gaps. That's one of the reasons I added the Sense monitoring recommendation from this thread...

    Is Net Metering a Must in Texas?

    I'm happy to say its not luck the 10 plus yrs I've lived in Texas. I haven't had a power outage here in a while and when I did it was like 10 min or less. Might be the areas I've lived in but certainly not an issue in SA worth buying 21k worth of Powerwall's that I'm certain of.
  31. MCNE

    Is Net Metering a Must in Texas?

    SA. No water issues either for us through that storm. I know many people in the state had problems for a couple of days or so.

    Is Net Metering a Must in Texas?

    For whatever the reason I don’t loose power in Texas so that’s not a worry. Even my generator has never been used. We don’t have enough power issues to justify the cost of a Powerwall in Texas where I’m located which is a good thing.
  33. MCNE

    Is Net Metering a Must in Texas?

    Welcome, I’m not in Houston but I am in Texas and yes Net metering is a must have in my opinion. We use a lot of energy, about 20-30% more than we produce. Problem is we need some place to store the solar because of when it’s generated. We can’t consume it all real-time. The net metering plan we...

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    It’s good Tesla is coming back out to take a look. You are correct with the site meter being the connection to the Neurio device. I’ve moved it (configured) between my two inverters thinking is would resolve my issue but it did not. This grid information in the inverter will happen without a...

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    No worries, but what you are describing are issues I’ve seen at my house and I’ll tell you Tesla was stumped on how to get it fixed after the CTs were in the correct place (still configured wrong). Once I got past the solution is broken I was able to accept and test the strange config needed to...

    Tesla Neurio Device Accuracy

    Wow, so there is a lot here 🙂. It does sound like there is a possible CT config issue and I would not hold my breath waiting or asking Tesla to fix data, that wont happen. You might need to have an electrician change the CT's around for you or have Tesla come out but that could take weeks...

    Yeah that sure sounds like the Neurio device is not connected properly. Read through Neurio Monitoring Performance that might help you.

    Tesla app usage doesn't match SCE bill

    Crap, yeah you are correct they installed it wrong. Not sure what a solution would be with those bars not being accessible for the CT’s. Maybe an electrician would have a solution for you.

    Tesla app usage doesn't match SCE bill

    Did they install a separate junction point with your install, something like this?

    Tesla app usage doesn't match SCE bill

    My Tesla reported usage has never aligned with my utility and I check it regularly online.There is something off on their (Tesla) side with home usage when a new day starts. Just take a look at that data at 12:01am. I’ve just learned to live with it.

    Neurio Monitoring Performance Issue

    I might have missed it but do you have pictures of the configuration? I guess it’s possibly that you issue is different. It is a little tricky with the CTs.

    Is there a timezone setting to data being logged in Tesla app?

    We discussed this in another thread I start that was an extension of other Neurio issues so I did call Tesla and opened a ticket. Net, they said this is expected behavior and there was nothing to be changed. I have no powerwalls or EV’s. Unfortunately the data usage from their apps isn’t going...

    Tesla Inverter Error(s)

    My smaller 3.8kw inverter is doesn’t make that gurgling noise the larger one does but I haven’t seen any production issues. I might bounce them and see what the web interface show on both. So you’ve seen production issues that had you look into what the inverters might be doing.

    Tesla Neo Gateway not working after new router

    Interesting, Tesla was going to move me to that black box device when they were troubleshooting my Neurio (new device) issues but the new Inverters aren’t compatible with the older Neurio hardware on the backend so they didn’t go down that road. I don’t have that solar gateway box in my setup...

    Tesla Neo Gateway not working after new router

    Great explanation but quick question. Can Tesla test or check that solar gateway on their end when connected? To confirm that it’s communicating/routing properly. In case there is some port or routing issue or default configuration with the changed Router even with Ethernet. Or is the assumption...

    Texas Energy Provider: Customer Portal Reporting

    Not sure how many on the forum live in Texas, specifically any that deal with CPS Energy of San Antonio. Since my solar install the reported energy data on the customer portal page has been way off. I have reached out to them because of this error but was initially told that it looks fine. Of...

    My inverter failed shortly after install- Now No Solar during hottest months of the year

    That’s exactly what the Tesla techs told me during my install as they tried to convince me to keep the two new Tesla inverters (was told SE would be installed). They said that the SE turn around with failures were killing them because of the process and guidelines they are working with. I hope...

    My inverter failed shortly after install- Now No Solar during hottest months of the year

    I might have missed it but what type of Inverter did Tesla install? Apparently it makes a difference with the warranty recovery if its the in-house unit.
