    Tesla Solar in Houston & Surrounding Area’s

    I see you are outside of Houston area so I guess the wait for Centerpoint approval is not that long. I heard stories of months waiting since there are lots of solar applications and few people at Centerpoint to go through the queue. Anyway, congratulations and I look forward to hearing your...

    Congrats. Did you get an email from centerpoint about the approval? When did you sign the interconnection application with centerpoint?

    It is for a new build with solar roof. They will come and install membrane to protect it from water. Then they will install the solar roof.

    When did your application for permit was submitted to Centerpoint? I signed the application on June 2 and still waiting for CenterPoint to approve the installation. I however got a site visit on June 22 so I don't know when we got to dryin yet.

    I havent seen anyone discuss the huge news that Supreme court limits EPA authority to set pollution limit. https://www.nytimes.com/live/2022/06/30/us/supreme-court-epa This will set back any goal that the Biden administration tries to do.

    Tesla Solar in Houston & Surrounding Area’s

    I'm reading conflicting posts about Tesla Solar loan that when you payoff the whole amount, you will pay the full interest amount. So if the 10 years loan, the full interest is say 20K, and you want to pay off after 2 years, you still have to pay the full 20K interest. Wonder if anyone can...

    Any financing options better than Tesla financing at 10 years, 5.24% APR? I am looking at installing solar roof in Houston sometime this summer and the total cost comes out to around 250K.

    Not sure where you are but i used to think getting a solar roof is no go here in my HOA. This neighborhood has all Mediterranean tiles roof and a few houses here got solar panels. When I propose my solar roof, the HOA made me jump through hoops. I have to get approvals from my next door...

    Rage bought 20 chairs at 824 this morning and set limit buy orders for 50 each at 800 and 780. The first one hit at 800 so I'm an owner of 70 chairs today, in addition to my collection of the same chairs in different shape and sizes.

    SBLOC: extra cash by borrowing against assets

    Morgan Stanley Wealth Management. You got a team assigned to you. Well, consider the value of the portfolio. If you have a 5M minimum in your portfolio value even if it's single stock, they can lend you up to 65%. You can deal with them. Rate has been creeping up but it's under 1.5% APR at the...

    Natural Gas vs Heat pumps for heating

    Sound like a good candidate for the Arctic heat pump. It will heat and cool your pool and plenty of output to spare.

    Natural Gas vs Heat pumps for heating

    What are your target temp for pool and spa? Are you running them 24/7 to maintain the temp once it's reached? Or just run the HP a day or so before you plan to use the pool?

    Natural Gas vs Heat pumps for heating

    While we are at it, get all the pump, motors to be variable speed.

    do you have a link to their models?

    Natural Gas vs Heat pumps for heating

    You can and should put a timer on the recir pump to avoid the issue.

    Natural Gas vs Heat pumps for heating

    Absolutely. If you are interested in high performance house and getting away from inefficient appliances, take a look a Matt Risinger on Youtube. He is a builder in Austin, TX that has a large following. I take lot of idea from his builds.

    Nice. Do they have one for pool and spa?

    Natural Gas vs Heat pumps for heating

    Jandy is an American heatpump I believe. It does not work well when temp drops below 40 F, as is the case with most heat pump. On the other hand, inverter HP that is used in cold weather countries like the Arctic model I posted above works well when it goes to -F. We will see but I think anytime...

    The Miele heatpump dryer drains into the same drain pipe as the washer.

    A few months ago, we started building our retirement home. It will be fully electric house (has the gas line run into the house just for back up and future resellability). It will have a Tesla solar roof with several PWs. HVAC will be Mitsubishi heat pump system. Found out that you can get heat...

    Yes, we have several houses with solar panels here. In Texas, HOA cant deny solar and they denied mine for the color which is strange.

    Solar Roof - Texas - HOA declined

    I also got my solar roof application denied because "Black color roofing regardless of the material is not an acceptable color to keep the Mediterranean look and harmony of the neighborhood". I'm building a new house in a community that consists of clay, tiles roof. I'm contacting some attorney...

    Wiki Model X Refresh Issues Thread

    I just left my MSM 2022 X LR in service. The door plastic trim on the FSD is loose, causing noise when driving. I had a Tesla driving with me to confirm the noise. It's an easy fix, I almost attempted to do to do it myself, just add some double side tape to glue it back but looks like Tesla may...

    I got 3d maxpider for 2021 version and had to return. I am testing the tesmanian floormats now. The front driver, passenger mats fit really well, frunk fit fine. Will watch the middle mat for fitness as the mats may take some time to flatten out and properly fit due to being folded in the box.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    I drove my refreshed X for 1144 miles since delivery 3 weeks ago and the average is 297 Wh/mi. Not too bad. I did a mix of highway and local streets with lot of stop and go. We have crazy weather with 80 degrees one week and 30 the next. I think the heatpump they put in the new X improves...

    Just poping in here to update you guys on something. I have been looking at some floormats for my 2022 X and contacted Tesmanian about the ones they have. They selected me in their test fit program and will send me some floormats to test out. I should get them this weekend to try it out...

    It was a small dent on the left side, near the ridge line. They tried a dent/pullout guy but did not fix it so they sent it to a bodyshop to work on it. You would not notice it at all when I received it.

    Those of you with the car already, can you find out how to do the Xmas dance? Or do you have the ANC option? I have the latest firmware and do not find either.

    Guys, the non-VINNers. I notice that all the VINNers got their VIN when they are not actively refreshing their account page. It just happened when you least expect it. I think you should go about your days and it will appear magically.

    Say hello to the first 2022 refreshed model X delivered in the Houston area. We took delivery of the refreshed model X yesterday at the Tesla Westheimer Center after waiting for 13 months.

    I was in shocked seeing it after 13 months and I didn't look at any flaws or anything. It's for another time :) Seems like people got the VIN by checking their app or account. No msg or email. So you may get it sooner than you think.

    I met my X today and it was a pleasant surprise. My delivery was originally scheduled for today at 4pm but it was pushed until tomorrow 5pm because the temp tag is not yet available. So we went to the SC and asked the employee there to see if it's in the store. The manager came out and greeted...
