    Sudden drop of production on sunny day

    Just a quick follow up everyone: after Tesla officially activated the system, the sudden drop never occurred. So what the advisor told me was actually true: I had to wait for system activation to test it out.

    Tesla Inverter Issues

    Today is the first day since official activation. I got the new inverter and can see my energy production as well as consumption (although I do not have powerwall). Now something interesting happened. I see two big dips on a completely cloudless sunny day. Then the home consumption dropped...

    Tesla Inverter Issues

    I can only see one wireless network called "TeslaPV_XXXX" The password inside the inverter box does allow me to connect to this network But 192.168.91.1 does not work

    Thank you! I did not read it carefully!

    Final invoice question

    Thank you. That means the 100 bonus by using the link is actually in the form of a rebate instead of discount. That makes sense.

    Final invoice question

    Hi everyone, there is a "rebate" that is applied as discount in the final invoice for my solar system. I attached a pic. However, I do have $100 referral discount and another $100/kw rebate per a Tesla email. I am not sure if the $100+$100x6.12kw rebate will be mailed to me after I make the...

    Tesla Inverter Issues

    I don't know if there is a web ui. I use the Tesla app (same app for the car) to monitor solar production.

    Tesla Inverter Issues

    I contacted tesla chat customer service before calling the service advisor. The online agent assured me that the system was working good although she refused to provide me any further info and insisted that I kept the system turned off. I guess I'll have to wait for PTO before they acknowledge...

    Sudden drop of production on sunny day

    I called the service adviser and he told me since I do not have PTO and not officially turn on the system now, the reporting from the app may be wrong. He asked me to wait until PTO and check again. I guess I will have to wait until PTO. Not sure if PTO and some official activation will make a...

    Tesla Inverter Issues

    My 6kw system is only giving half the normal output today (sunny without clouds). It is a new system with new inverter (without PTO). Maybe it is the inverter? Right now at 1:06pm it only gives 2.5kw, vs 5kw normally (for the last couple of days). Also I do hear water flow inside the inverter...

    Sudden drop of production on sunny day

    Thank you so much. I do not have pto yet although city has inspected it. Hope it is the inverter instead of the panels.

    Sudden drop of production on sunny day

    Mine is 6kw and peak is about 5kw at 1:30pm. Right now only 2.5kw at 1pm. Hope it is the issue with inverter not the panel, making it easier for the maintenance folks to fix the problem.

    Sudden drop of production on sunny day

    Thank you so much for your reply. It is a new system that I had been monitoring for a couple of days. It is a 6kw system. The inverter is in the white glass box. I have a spec attached.

    Sudden drop of production on sunny day

    hi folks, there are occasional times across multiple days where there is very low production while it is sunny and no cloud at all. My 6,12kw system should produce more than 3kw at 10am. But this morning it shows only 1.5kw while there are absolutely no cloud or fog at all. This happened also a...

    Installer not following the design

    Liked and thank you Ampster. Not sure if it is very difficult for the installers to relocate the panels?

    Installer not following the design

    I understand that it may be just myself who do not want these possible sources of EMR near my kids' rooms. But is it alright for the installers to improvise without asking my opinion? The first design was all on the right roof. I sent my comments and requests to Tesla and it took them two more...

    Installer not following the design

    Today after they installed the panels, I asked if they got a pic. When they sent me the pic, I found that the design was not followed. When I made the design with the design department, I made it to avoid our bedroom and my kid's bedroom. In addition, if you look at the upper left corner of the...

    Is there a recommended windshield washer fluid?

    I checked the price at amazon is around 20 dollars per gallon. Was wondering since the service center would do it for free, I could save 20 by going there...

    Is there a recommended windshield washer fluid?

    Hello everyone, I plan to go to the service center at Carlsbad CA to refill the fluid, as it gave a low level alert. Just wonder if they would do it immediately, or I would have to leave my car there and come back later? Would they give me a loaner in that case? Thank you. The issue with tesla...

    Geico Ramps Up Model 3 Collision Premium

    hi fellow model 3 owners, the upcoming premium from Geico on my model 3 is outrageous. I own 3 cars, a 2014 BMW 3, a 2018 Honda Odyssey and a 2019 Model 3. The collision w/ $500 Deductible for Tesla is $548, compared with $216 for BMW and $170 for Honda. Please see the pic yourself...

    Question about SR software lock

    Someone said for SR, 10% of the cells will be locked, instead of 10% of the capacity. Just want to confirm this. Any ideas? If entire cells are locked, then SR user can only do 176miles when charging, instead of recklessly charging to 192mile as the SR plus.
