    I wish they would mention what kind of orbit they are going into. Just curious how long the picture is staying up.

    Tesla Needs on "Off button"

    It should go to sleep no matter what the door lock state is. What is the temperature in your garage? If you have cabin heat protection turned on it will run the fans and/or the A/C to keep the car under 100F.

    What is your reserve percentage set to and why?

    According to the specs the total capacity is 14kwh and usable is 13.5kwh, so 100% is not 100% of the battery capacity. https://tesla-cdn.thron.com/static/RALHZL_Powerwall_2_AC_Datasheet_EN_NA_7LOWBF.pdf?xseo=&response-content-disposition=inline%3Bfilename%3D%22powerwall-2-ac-datasheet-en-na.pdf%22

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    I think it refers more to the leap part. A quantum leap is a change of energy states without going through the states between. So in this case it would be like going from a buggy FSD to one that works without having a sorta works in between.

    Discrepancy between Gateway solar CT and Enphase

    Been over 14 days and no ticket updates from Tesla. It would be nice if they had at least sent back an email that they resolved the issue.

    Discrepancy between Gateway solar CT and Enphase

    Got an email back from Tesla on the 17th that they logged a ticket and would address it within 14 days. "We estimate that it will take us up to 14 days to resolve your inquiry. We will be sure to keep you posted on any further updates. " I have not heard anything else from them but did...

    Discrepancy between Gateway solar CT and Enphase

    Figured it might be the case since they have been catching up on Powerwall backorders. I got my panels in Sept and the Powerwalls mid January.

    Discrepancy between Gateway solar CT and Enphase

    What number did you call. I did just step through the support menu which had me generate an email. Out of curiosity since you are also in MN was your installer All Energy Solar?

    Discrepancy between Gateway solar CT and Enphase

    I might have to try that too. Just got Powerwalls installed last week. My panels are currently mostly snow covered so I have not got a good production day yet and the Powerwalls are still working on fully charging but I am seeing a difference in what Enphase and Tesla are reporting for...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    It will be interesting to see if they will have to do anything for people that went ahead with the increased price installation, or those that canceled because of it. Personally I canceled and went with a local company for panels. Tesla hasn't even started solar roof installs in MN so I decided...

    New Battery - Tesla or Enphase?

    I was misremembering the round trip number for Enphase, so scratch that as they are close enough to not matter. After typing out that list I decided to go Encharge and emailed my installer. It will probably be a better system without mixing providers (Enphase microinverters with Echarge...

    New Battery - Tesla or Enphase?

    Debating the same choice myself. Just had a 10kWh system installed from a local installer but the 2 Powerwalls are on the who knows when backorder. Installer offered to sub Encharge batteries which they can do right away. Here's what I see as positives for each. PowerWalls: Higher capacity...

    Is No-Radar Cause of Crashes?

    I find it funny that ~11 crashes in a +3 year period warrants an investigation. The current cars are not even running the same software as was the ones involved. I wonder how many plain old cruise control related accidents occured in the same time period.
  22. N

    Is No-Radar Cause of Crashes?

    The dates of all the crashes listed that I have seen on the reports are a couple years ago so the cars involved were using radar. According to Tesla that is part of the reason for the failures and vision only will work better. I would also say most if not all the crashes involved people using...

    No Tesla Solar Glass for Minnesota ?

    I canceled mine when they raised the price 40%. Ended up contracting with a local company for panels. Before I canceled I was emailing back and forth with a rep on the price increase and the rep did say MN was still on hold even if I accepted the increase.

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I just got a check in the mail today. All I can say is WOW. They sent me a check for the entire cost of the A/C unit I installed. I guess is helped that on the quote it was listed as a requirement that it be compatible with a Tesla Powerwall. (sent them both the quote and the receipt).

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    In my case I did cancel. They had not started installs in MN yet and the reply I got back said that even if I accepted the increase MN was still on holds for installs. I figure with the price increase there would be little chance they would have enough demand to start installs here. I'm...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    Anyone get a reply back on a reimbursement request? Sent one to them on Apr 15th and not a peep. "If you cancel your order and have completed prep work to your home or property directly for the Solar Roof installation, please send your receipts to [email protected] within 30 days of...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I did end up sending it in as I'm no worse off if they say no. I included two arguments in my email. First I would not have upgraded if I was not installing solar. Second that I specifically chose a more expensive unit to be compatible with Solar/PW. I included the receipt and the quote showing...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    New email from Tesla Energy. I already had canceled 2 days ago. Interesting they are now offering to possibly reimburse for prep work already done. I've already upgraded my AC to one compatible with Powerwalls. I wonder if it is worth sending that receipt in. As we shared recently, we...

    For $4k I might have grumbled and eventually signed. How much was your quote before the price hike?

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I wonder how many people will sign the price hike agreements. Their list of upcoming installations may just drop to 0. I can't see anyone with an existing agreement accepting a 40% or more increase.

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I just received the reply below from Tesla. I'm going to just cancel and get my $100 deposit back (probably take a few months knowing Tesla). I can confirm that the price increase is based on price per sq ft which is now been increased to $14 per sq ft and is a new change within Tesla. As...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    The bold section of the purchase agreement looks like an out for Tesla. To me it basically says if Tesla causes a price change your only options are accept or cancel. Still disappointing. I was really hoping to get it installed this year but the new %40 increase makes it completely out of the...

    Solar Roof, big price increase

    I've had a solar roof reservation since March 2020 (in MN). My purchase agreement was signed in April 2020. Today I got the note below which shows a new agreement which is just about $20k more than the original. No change in the proposed design. We have increased the price of Solar Roof and...

    Ordering in Nebraska

    I'm a Tesla owner in MN. My father who lives in Nebraska is thinking about buying one. I believe Nebraska still has a dealership protection law so Tesla can't operate there. Question for anyone in NE that has purchased new what was the procedure?

    A/C replacement advice

    Ended up getting a 3 Ton Amana 16 SEER 2 stage AC. I looked at a variable speed but our HVAC guy said since our 2y old furnace did not have a variable speed fan we would not see the full benefit. And as mentioned the variable speed one cost twice that of the 16 SEER one. The LRA on this one is...

    Tesla removes regenerative braking strength option

    No Tesla Solar Glass for Minnesota ?

    Since I had not heard back yet on what photos they needed I called. She said it was probably an accidental automated email because they have all the photos they need. She also said MN is still on hold which is understandable as who wants to do a roof in the winter here. She did say they should...

    A/C replacement advice

    I intend to do the A/C after the snow melts in the spring. Tesla says they intend to start MN installs in 4-6 months but I would not expect them to be able to start in MN any earlier than April or May.

    A/C replacement advice

    Thanks all for the replies and info. Now I know what to talk to my HVAC person about when I get the new A/C unit. The plan is to get it done before the Solar Roof install but of course you never know when Tesla is going to want to schedule the installation until they do.

    A/C replacement advice

    I have on order a 8.4kW solar roof with 2 Powerwalls which will hopefully be installed next spring. I also have a ~20 year old central A/C unit that is on its last leg. I'll be replacing it this coming spring. I want to make sure whatever A/C unit I install will be able to run off solar or PW in...

    Homelink question re auto close distance

    From memory, you can set the close distance by stopping the car at the place you want to trigger the close and then in the homelink settings there is a set position (or similar wording) button. Looked it up in the manual. The option is "reset location".

    No Tesla Solar Glass for Minnesota ?

    I sent a note to the solar advisor listed on my order and asked if they were switching to 3rd party installers in MN mentioning I saw a forum post about it. He replied that I could on my own find a 3rd party installer but the pricing would be set by them. No offer to transfer my order or any...

    No Tesla Solar Glass for Minnesota ?

    Might be progress on mine. I logged into the order and saw it is requesting my homeowners insurance declaration page again. It renewed in July so someone must have been looking through the docs and triggered the request for the current doc.
