    Zigbee and ethernet at the same time..

    Today I got solaredge account activation email from Tesla. And I logged into solaredge App first time , and it has data for today. I never connected ethernet cable and it shows data. That means, Tesla has opened up and sharing some data with solaredge. It's getting better.... However, mine is...

    Finally Turned system on....

    Thanks albertm3 for your suggestion. I'm going to buy extended warranty. It's been a week and seems system is performing well. Average daily prod is 23.5 kwh for 5.1kw. I also monitored actual meter readings and seems correct. However, My Tesla App still shows graph with peaks and valley. After...

    Finally Turned system on....

    Hi albertm3, I did not request anything. They decided on their own. But it doesn't hurt to ask for it. EDIT: on sizing, with 15 panels and just one day of data, Now I'm thinking 6k system would have been better. Personally I think, good idea to go 10-15% above your max usage. Do not want to...

    Finally Turned system on....

    ok.... will call them tomorrow. This also means that production it shows may not be true nos. BTW.. all peaks and valley occur at 15 mins interval. peaks are at 1:15 , 1:45, 2:15.... and valley at 1:00,1:30, 2:00 , 2:30 I was able to move slide bar on graph and it shows time related to data...

    Finally Turned system on....

    I see.... Thanks for pointing it out. Like I said my zigbee still shows "NO Signal". could it be because of that ? The valley and peaks seems to be at regular interval or some pattern. could it be because of internet connection, not sending data properly ?

    Finally Turned system on....

    Here is 1st day of production.... not bad. 24.3kwh Few More questions... 1) My zigbee still shows "No Signal" . What should I see when it's connected ? OK ? 2) Tesla App shows only production nos. Is it supposed to show used ( or consumed ) nos as well ? 3) Is it because my zigbee is not...

    Finally Turned system on....

    Yes... thanks wjgjr. PVwatts nos are under ideal conditions, which obviously we do not have. However based on current production nos, it seems close enough ( may be 20% down ) by end of month. But overall , it is behaving as expected.

    Finally Turned system on....

    Hi All, Yesterday night I got approval from PGE. It took 4 Business days for PGE to approve since Tesla submitted all app. No issue... All good. Today morning turned system on at 8am. Then called Tesla ( talked to activation team ). She entered date and time when PGE approved. 10 mins call. And...

    Steps after Installation

    Yes... SFBayarea. ours was done on 9/30 as well. Next day was inspection and city Inspector gave all paper work to Tesla's Inspection team who is supposed to enter all docs in Tesla system. That's the part they are waiting. Entire week to get paper work entered seems like a big delay. Well, at...

    Steps after Installation

    Very slow..... installation is completed since last 4 days and inspector gave all paper work in front of me. Now, Advisor says they are working on getting paper work into system and review. Then they will send it to PGE. I'm pretty sure PGE is not taking too much time, it's delay at Tesla's end.

    How is the referral now working?

    I had the same question and advisor team member said, ref bonus comes in separate checks, not reflected in Invoice. what about with others ?

    Actual vs rated production

    Steps after Installation

    Ok... so they came back today and did whole bunch of things.... 1) Replaced all broken tiles , plus some more that were bad. showed photos after that. I think they did very good job. 2) City Inspection done. No problem. it was like 15 min job. 3) They also worked on water heater ( did some...

    Steps after Installation

    Yes.... agreed. Its just feel like I missed out on something that I should get it. I'm sure after few months I will not be using all these toys as much.

    Steps after Installation

    Ok.... I was hoping ( even confirmed with advisor before buying ) that I will be able to monitor each panel. I understand , it's overall production that matters, but then it would be easier to figure out if one panel is not working. I guess will keep trying to find better solution. I've not...

    Steps after Installation

    Thanks BrettS. Yes I've solar only. No Poerwall. So How can I monitor each panel ? I thought I need zigbee for Tesla App and Ethernet connect for Solaredge. Isn't it ? Also, To monitor each panel, I thought we need installer account, not monitoring a/c. am i wrong ?

    Steps after Installation

    Hi All, First Thank you all for sharing your experience and knowledge. Our installation was done yesterday. Things were smooth upto this point.... However, I'm somewhat clear about some of the next steps and not clear about some areas, especially monitoring, connectivity..... I think those are...

    Installation scheduled - what to ask/plan

    No.... In my case they said, survey is not needed, which I think bad idea. Insist on survey. I t will be useful. Like in my case, during install they broke 6-8 tiles but did not have tiles to replace today. So they are going to come back and fix it. I'm not sure if this could create a problem...

Here are key points and photos. 1) Crew was on time 8:00 am and left at 5pm. worked all day, 5 ppl 2) I had asked for photos and panel mapping. they gave both in the end. 3) Equipment - 5.1kw system, Inverter - SE7600h, Optimizer - P400 ( they...

    Installation scheduled - what to ask/plan

    Hi, We are scheduled for Installation on sep-30 , 5.1kw system, with 15panels in Bay area. I started with 4kw system, but after second thought , decided to increase to 5.1kw as it's better to be on higher side. Most of the panels are in either SE or S facing. Also, got text from advisor, they...

    Newbie capacity question - ordered 4kw system

    Okay... thank you all for your input. Hopefully 4kw is enough to add one plug-in hybrid with current usage. Soon will know. Expected to get permit in a week or so and Advisor said Installation could happen within a week after that. crossing my fingers..

    Newbie capacity question - ordered 4kw system

    Yes... From all 10 PGE bills I added kwh for the month and total is 3650kwh for 10 months. I thought most ppl have Elec. charge around $100 per month. We have AC and used it all time . So it's not like we are cutting on anything. With $1200 a year in Elec. bill, system will break even in 5 yrs...

    Newbie capacity question - ordered 4kw system

    Hi All, First of all, thank you all. I've learned a lot from this forum. I recently order 4kw system and was scheduled for site inspection, but with few more photos, they said it's not required as house is less than 15 years old. So I hope it's okay... waiting for next step. I've a question...
