    Since Elon canceled my Plaid+ order and still be waiting for my 2 years delayed delivery for my Tesla Roadster, i strongly consider to move the money from my Plaid+ Order to Mercedes EQS. But i fear i have to wait for a possible delivery late into 2022, giving Elon the chance to catch up with...

    There are 4 SuC V3 in Germany right now and it went public, that eGolfs and eKonas successfully charged their car at the SuC V3 in Braak and Hermsdorf with no authorization procedure by Tesla. Will Tesla open their SuC Network to any other brands in Europe.

    Cost of Tesla Solar Roof Tiles

    There is a producer for slate style pv-modules. Home in germany. The Quad40 shingles are rated for around 40W and one shingle covers around 2.5 sqft. For 10kWp you will need 250 shingles or 625 sqft. The cost can be somewhere between €16.000 and €20.000 (or between €1.600 and €2.000 per kWp). I...

    Roadster 3.0 Tires

    The consumtion dropped from 120Wh/km down to 107Wh/km over distances of 300-400km. a saving of about 10%. I use the Toyos on the Rear only. the front tire are Yokohama with a rating of Efficiency Class C

    Roadster 3.0

    or Tesla is just using those cells which fail to pass the quality-test to match the minimum capacity for a model S pack. Tesla just downrated the cells and are still fine for the roadster 3.0 upgrade batterypack

    Sooner or later, every roadster owner will have to replace his battery pack. Using the cells of Model s is not as difficult and does not needs a lot of construction work and software developement. 85kWh/7104*6831 gives around 82kWh or alt least 600-700km of range. charging only is needed through...

    Help me understand a SolarCity proposal w/r/t Model S charging

    I am really shocked, how much you have to pay for a solar array. In Germany, your price is about €1.200,-- per kWp +VAT (which you get back) or your 24kWp solar array would cost in Germny €28.000,-- including installation ready to run. At current exchange rate for the Dollar is about $40.000,--...

    You can install a control unit at your meter with read in realtime the total consumtion of your house, including the production from the solar.array. Depending on the currently aviable capacitiy it can tell the Model S via the pilot signal, how much current it can draw. If you want, you can set...

    Reduced charging current after FW upgrade V5.6

    This reduced charging current of 26A is a unwanted feature - is there a possibility to downgrade to the previous version? The prospected 20kW charging power is now down to 18kW and no longer matching the rated charging power. Eberhard

    and do not forget, 45% of the german price for electricity are duties and taxes. The kWh price at the eex is traded around 4.5cent, but the enduser has to pay up to 30cent per kWk including the monthly fee for the meter.

    Two many EV's in one home?

    The only solution to this problem is "managed charging" via the pilot signal to the HPWC. The meter is counting the current drawing from the net. If the current reaching the maximum level, the HPCW is set to draw less current. Within this calculation can also included a pv-system on the...
