    Tesla App Utility plan configuration: Multiple Peaks, Buy/Sell Behavior, etc

    I have two of these living in Northern California where we do have a history of fire caused outages. So normally I always keep my power walls charged to 50% and they are quickly charged about 3 hours of solar from my 48 panels during the day. The rest of the day overage solar goes back to the...

    How to tell after power outage if you are using PW Batteries or if the grid is back on?

    So the power came back on almost immediately. About five minutes or so after the power came back on, I did get a notification saying the house was being powered from the power walls, it was not. I never have received any of those screen shots when running from power walls during a power...

    How to tell after power outage if you are using PW Batteries or if the grid is back on?

    Our power went out and the Power Walls started up providing service. However, now it seems the power grid is back on. How do you tell if you are using the Power Walls or the Grid. This is important because if you have an extended power failure, you need to turn off house A/C, large power...

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

    Q Peak Duo BLK-G6+SC340 I have 48 of these on my roof, 2 PW's. Checking the Solar Edge Application for one of the panels in perfect bright sunlight does not seen to be producing close to 340 watts of power. So what should I expect??????

    No Solar Production with Power Outage

    Thanks for the info. I was not at home. Checking the app remotely I noticed no solar production looking at the app graph. There was a big gap in the solar production app graph. The PW's were fully charged when the outage happened. The outage was 1.5 hours so I do not know how low the...

    No Solar Production with Power Outage

    Playing golf today in CA and noticed my solar production was dead, no production. My house was being powered by my 2 power wall batteries. After about 1 1/2 hours solar started working again, charging the batteries, and powering the house. When I got home I discovered we had a power outage of...

    Old Tesla App No Longer Working

    I have been using the older version, better app than new one. However, I can no longer log in to the app on my Android phone. Just last night logging in not possible. Why? It downloads and installs, but when I try to log in message is Sign In Failed, unauthorized. The older app is soooo...

    My $250 deposit [why can I not get my deposit back?]

    Thanks for all the responses. As expected I did not get my $250 back. From my perspective when I ordered the car in Dec, Tesla quoted me a Mar delivery. That is why I placed the order, and that date held until Feb when the order slipped to May. The order was placed on their delivery date...

    My $250 deposit [why can I not get my deposit back?]

    I know that the site says non-refundable, but according to the web some folks are getting the deposit back I am a very loyal Tesla customer installing last year 48 panels, and 2 PW's. It costs a lot of money. It has been a very good customer experience. Anyway, my wife's car, the lease...

    Using the SolarEdge App, how to tell if you have as bad optimizer, Panels?

    Looking at the daily production I show some production on Inverter 1, however, when I run playback the panels always are shaded, and I do not see what panels on that inverter are producing energy. How can that be. Tesla tells me all is right with the panels. Are those panels on inverter 1...

    squirrel guard and tesla install

    Putting a screen around the Tesla panels should not void any warranty. Contact Tesla and ask for their Pest Abatement Quote. They will quote a price and send a crew to install the screen, or they will refer you to someone in your area that can do that work.

    squirrel guard and tesla install

    There are people that install the mesh screen on solar. I live in Northern California and had my 48 panels screened. It cost approximately $1,500 to do all the panels. It is my understanding that Tesla will do the screening. They are more expensive. Good Luck, these varmints eat the...

    On one of my Trane units, my A/C contractor was doing some service work and noticed this installed. He says it was not installed by Trane so he had no idea how this part got installed. Did Tesla install this in the unit at Solar and Power Wall installation???????? If they did how come in only...

    Tesla app version 4.0.0 has app re design for both car and energy

    Just installed the Android version. I don't like the new version. The energy graph section is hard to read, and does not allow you to overlay all the curves. Very confusing, I don't understand why Tesla did this. It adds no value over the replaced version. I am not upgrading my IOS version...

    Changing Main 200 Amp Breaker with Power Walls?

    It is a 25 year old knuckle back breaker that is no longer made except refurbished, Cooper Crouse-Hinds Murray MD2200 Main Breaker Vertical Mount 200A. PG&E said it looked a little worn. I am replacing it with a Siemens that will fit and work. Just a precaution. Maybe it is not necessary.

    I need a new main master 200 AMP breaker installed in my PG&E meter box. My Tesla Installation has 2 Power Walls. How do I change a main breaker with the Tesla configuration without zapping myself. Is it as simple has turning the Power Walls off. I suppose there is no way around losing power...

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

    Installed my Tesla Solar system with 48 panels and 2 Solar-edge inverters last December. My issue is that my inverters display solid green light showing solar production yet I have had solar panels broken not producing. Tesla has visited twice to repair solar panels running their Solar-edge...

    How do I get access to solar edge monitoring for my system?

    Tesla was here yesterday to repair 12 of my 48 panels. I have two SolarEdge Inverters each managing 24 panels. My issue was these panels were down, not producing, and the SolarEdge Inverter was showing a Green LED so it looked like all the panels were working. The Tesla Tech reps on site ran...

    Power Wall behavior during PG&E Outage

    We had a outage today, and our 2 power wall recovery was not seamless. The 65" display turned off, and many of our LED remote controlled lights turned on. Our satellite receivers that were off turned then selves on. Mostly everything else was seamless and without these few devices turning...

    Turning off all power for electrical maintenance for your house

    This may seem like a rather stupid question. I have 48 panels and 2 PW's. When the power goes out the house keeps running. My question is when I am having electrical maintenance performed, adding circuit breakers, running a new circuit, fixing a breaker, how do I turn off all the power so the...

    PGE Billing vs Tesla Data Explanation

    The problem is for some reason I was not on that plan therefore I was not getting the proper credits for banked Grid power. PG&E is correcting this and will apply the correct credits. I wondered why I have been making grid payments since PTO was issued in Dec. Thanks

    PGE Billing vs Tesla Data Explanation

    I banked 785 kWh. How can I be charged anything. What is PG&E doing with my banked power. With banked power I had thought that would pay for power when charged from the grid. Everyday I am generating more solar than house use. Where is my banked solar going? I don't understand how this...

    PGE Billing vs Tesla Data Explanation

    How many panels are actually generating solar power?

    Thanks to all for the input. Talked to Tesla, and there is no way for them to determine if you have a couple of panels not working. They say it is something you probably would not notice. I have SolarEdge inverters installed in Dec, without the display so there is no way for me to log in to...

    How many panels are actually generating solar power?

    I have 42 340W (I think they are 340 W) Tesla HE Solar Panels on my roof, powered with 2 inverters. It is midday here in Northern California, and my Solar Production is 7.5 kW. The solar panels are in different locations on the roof facing different directions based on my roof. So 42x340...

    Is 1 PowerWall better than No PowerWall?

    Do the PW's charge during the day using Solar Energy during an PGE outage. That is what I was told.

    Is 1 PowerWall better than No PowerWall?

    If you an outage I thought that during the day your solar will charge your power walls, providing you have solar sun during the day. Power Walls need to get you through the night or when there is no sun producing solar power. Am I mistaken here?

    Is 1 PowerWall better than No PowerWall?

    It takes Solar Energy to charge the PW. So rather you are using Solar Energy from your panels, or from the PW it is a wash. So if you do not need any backup I do not see the need for any power wall. If you have a lot of excess Solar Energy during the day that provides your needs for power...

    Solar Panel Skirts require a proprietary tool

    Thanks for all the feedback, really interesting. I will wait for Tesla to fix. I now appointment two weeks out. By the time I get this fixed my system will have been 1/2 down for over two months. Tesla really needs to do something about their support. I was going to get my wife a Tesla...

    Solar Panel Skirts require a proprietary tool

    My 44 panel, 2 PW system was installed in Dec 2020. About two months ago I lost 1/2 of solar generation because I noticed one the inverters was not producing power. Finally, after too much effort on my part Tesla sent someone to help me 2 months after I contacted them about my issue. The...
