    Dodged a bullett: Not this time

    I was asking about it a little while back (about the clipping) I have a 9.6 kW system with 1 Powerwall+ (7.6 kW Inverter). I was worried that I was losing too much because of the clipping, I'm still very new to solar energy systems so even the term "clipping" is fairly new to me. I was asking...

    Dodged a bullett: Not this time

    I was sweating there for a while as the sun dipped toward the horizon… I just needed the other tenth of a kilowatthour to avoid a visit from the Prince of Darkness…

    Low solar production before PTO, how to diagnose possible strings issue

    I hesitate at having a definitive answer for this because I'm too new here :) But before I had my PTO, my solar only produced enough to cover a little bit over what I was consuming for my house, and I was confused. As soon as I received my PTO and was sending power back to the grid, my solar...

    Low Solar Production and Peak vs Rated

    I'm EXTREMELY new to all of this (and this great group!) having just gotten a Tesla Solar system in March of this year (9.6kW 1 Powerwall+) but it would seem even with your chimney and the placement of your panels that you SHOULD be getting a significantly higher output peak than 5.6kW at least...

    More than 20% decrease in solar output in 1 year

    I just posted about total energy production of a Tesla system of given size :) Your post surprised me because during this month I consistently have 65+ Kwh per day (this with clipping at 7.7kw since I have only one inverter) and the size of my system is 9.6kw (24 panels x 400w/ea) Is it...

    9.6kWh Solar System total power production

    Thank you for the link! I inputted numbers that were actually slightly better than what I’ve been told the Tesla system can do (96% for efficiency instead 94%, premium panels instead of standard etc) and I used my March numbers (of which I only have 3/4 of the month use since I had the system...

    9.6kWh Solar System total power production

    Every article I’ve ever read about a “10kWh solar panel system” has stated that said system will produce 15-44kWh per day, and between 1100-1500kWh per month. I have a 9.6kW Tesla solar system with Powerwall+ and I produce an average of 62kWh a day and about 1900kWh a month. This includes me...

    How long between inspection and PTO? [various areas]

    Sorry for the delay in responding :( My solar system was installed and completed on March 15th so the city inspectors came exactly a week after installation.

    Preparing for install!

    Nice! Congratulations! I have the solar capacity as you I, but wish I had gone with two powerwalls instead of the one. It still works a treat though and the one powerwall easily powers the house from sundown to sunup, and the panels provide about 65 kWh a day (45-50kWh on very cloudy days)...

    Heat generation from Powerwall+

    This might be kind of inane, but I decided to post it anyway. I have a Powerwall+ and 9.6kW Solar system. The powerwall is in my garage and very out of the way. I’ve notice when it’s pulling in the inverter max of 7.7kW from the panels the inverter above the battery gets quite hot, with the...

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

    Oh!!! lol! Sorry, I was sleep and clueless! 😂 Still, with that much business, you’d think they should be bending over backwards for you, AND with a volume discount too!

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

    7 powerwalls?! Wow! That’s a very impressive system! 👍🏼 Maybe its taking so long because they have to first gather together all the powerwalls before they start? 😬

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

    I’d have to agree. My install was probably as cookie cutter as it could possibly be! All my panels fit on a single south facing slope of my roof and I have an unfinished ceiling in my garage (Where the powerwall was installed) so it was a simple matter to run conduit up and over the ceiling...

    Using 100% of the solar your panels produce [DC / AC ratio]

    Thank you all for the great replies! I’m learning a ton from this site! New solar concepts and practices I probably should have researched more fully before buying the system, but luckily, Whew! It looks like I made the proper choices to get close to maximizing my equipment potential despite...

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

    I have no explanation. I guess I’m the flyer in the good direction. Seriously though, I placed the Solar order (9.6 Kw Panels, Powerwall+) on December 22nd, Immediately got messages from Tesla saying what to expect with stuff to read and accept, 3 days later I got a diagram of my roof from...

    How long between inspection and PTO? [various areas]

    SF Bay Area here. Final Inspection: March 22nd PTO Granted: April 5th Tesla sent me several docs to electronically sign which they sent me thru the app. Tesla filled out all the info in the forms, After that they marked those steps as completed, they paid the filing fee, that was that...

    Using 100% of the solar your panels produce [DC / AC ratio]

    Hello All, I have a new Tesla 9.6 Kw solar system and one Powerwall+ and I LOVE the system, and the install process was smooth and efficient! I was initially confused because my energy production maxed at 7.7 Kw until I realized it’s because the solar inverter is rated for that. It’s still...

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

    I bought a 9.6 Kw solar and single Powerwall+ (Wish I had gotten two) system from Tesla and am loving it! I got estimates from 4 other installers in my area that used Powerwalls, and actually had them in stock, and the cheapest quote for the same specs was a full $13,000 more than Tesla...
