    Recommend a solar company in Orange County

    Check with Sunrun. They did our system and we are very happy. Make sure they install the Enphase IQ7+ or IQ8 inverters.

    Pictures of Solar on Flat Roof Home

    The PWs are outside by their patio door, (they live in a Townhome), under their patio roof. No Garage. He hasn't tested them but they did have a power outage for an hour and they worked ok for them. We had an outage for 15 minutes 3 weeks ago and no issues. Our A/C worked the same as being...

    Pictures of Solar on Flat Roof Home

    My Son-in-Law had Sunrun install a 5kW system, (with 2 Powerwalls) on his flat roof. There is a 25 yr warranty. The roof shouldn't crack because of being shaded by the panels. They are angled properly to catch the sun.

    How to tell if I’m getting PW2 or PW+ based on the model number?

    I live in Gilbert, AZ and wish I had 6 more panels and a 3rd Powerwall. We are producing enough power to run the house during the day, (A/C is set at 76), and charge our 2 Powerwalls enough to get past the Peak period, usually they last to 10pm. I have found that if the temp is 100 or lower, the...

    How to tell if I’m getting PW2 or PW+ based on the model number?

    Easiest way to tell, did they send you picture? Powerwall 2+ has the inverter on top

    Powerwall Outside Direct Sun Florida

    The PWs are environmentally sealed. Water won't hurt them.

    LADWP - can someone help me understand how I will be billed?

    I would highly recommend getting 2 powerwalls. That way you will run off them at night and not have to worry about using grid power.

    Am I getting the power I should?

    I've been peaking at 6.7/6.8kW and now getting 60kW a day. Prior to the 100-degree weather, we have been sending 350-375kW back to the grid for a nice discount, ($25 electric bill), so overall have been saving $35-$50 a month compared to our bill before solar.

    Am I getting the power I should?

    I have a 27 panel 9.45k system with Enphase inverters. The other day when the Sunrun Tech was here replacing the Neurio meter, I got him to connect to the combiner and at Noon, (here in AZ), with the sun directly overhead, all 27 panels were producing 245-246w. So it looks as if i will never get...

    That is true, the Solar would not come back on until the PWs reached around 90% charge.

    Load Meter Error???

    Ok, Final UPDATE!! Sunrun Tech came back today with a new Neurio meter. He replaced it and did the setup, he couldn't get past one step in the installation, (he couldn't delete the old serial number), so he called Tesla Installation support and they walked him through things. The Tesla tech...

    SRP demand (kW) number is huge different with Powerwall app

    Sorry BG, but if you read the sheet, the max operating temp is 122 degrees. Not 86 degrees.

    SRP demand (kW) number is huge different with Powerwall app

    I highly recommend you get at least 2 PWs, we have found out that our PWs only make it to 9-9:30pm with the A/C going more now. We moved the temp up to 76 degrees.

    New Powerwall Advanced Options [Toggles for charging from and discharging to grid from powerwalls]

    Unfinished installation: Is this common?

    Reading the horror stories about tesla makes me glad we went with Sunrun. Granted they were more expensive, but from time of order to activation, it was only 2 1/2 months.

    Powerwall backup question

    As ucmndd said, with the electric backed up in the home, (like mine is), the gateway still provides it's own IP address which you can connect to. Last week, SRP (our electric provider) went down for 15 minutes, my tablet was still connected to the Gateway and showing power coming from the PVs to...

    How to verify that all my solar panels are working without contacting Tesla support?

    I saw that. It wants me to set it up as an Enphase customer. i just wanted it to be able to monitor the outputs of the individual panels. I can use the Tesla app for the PWs and house.

    How to verify that all my solar panels are working without contacting Tesla support?

    I downloaded the app, and unfortunately, it's set up for a whole Enphase system, not how my system is with the PWs and Tesla Gateway2

    Tesla Solar vs ....[third party competitors]

    Loan only jumps if you don't meet "Target" amount specified. Loan payments started December of 2021 and we have to meet our "Target" by April of 2023. That's why we put $17k of the $17.5k tax credit we got onto the loan. Yes, the subsidized amount was for the roof replacement.

    Anyone have solar other than Tesla solar?

    Anyone have solar other than Tesla solar?

    Had an issue with the House indication, (I have a tablet hooked up to the IP address of the Gateway), going into a "Load Meter Fault" when the batteries hit 100% and power from the panels was over 5kW. They came out, found it was the CT's in the Tesla Gateway that were defective. Ordered the...

    Tesla Solar vs ....[third party competitors]

    Yes, they are priced higher, but... I feel the trade off is their Customer Service, plus the fact they install a "critter guard" to keep birds and pests out from under the panels. Whereas, Tesla does not.

    solar roof cleaning

    I would just save a grunch of $$$$ and buy the Windex Outdoor window cleaner that goes on your hose and do it yourself. Not that difficult. I just cleaned our panels for the first time, and they came out nice and clean.

    Tesla Solar vs ....[third party competitors]

    Nothing but good results. We went with Sunrun through Costco. Got 27 Hanwha Q-Cells 350w and 2 Powerwalls. Sunrun redid our roof as the underlayment was shot. They subsidized $4k of the 6800 and rolled the rest into our loan, (paid for panels through Goodleap). After install got a $2100 cash...
