    I used previous Gens on a volvo and was very happy with them, when the tyres that came on my Y need replacing I'll probably go with these.

    Octopus Energy, including Intelligent and go

    I'd go back to basics and check nothing is conflicting ie: Does the Anderson have scheduled charging times? Turn them all off Turn off Departure, and charge schedules in the Tesla app Did you have any other apps like ev.energy running?

    Octopus Energy, including Intelligent and go

    yup, so I've completely deleted the app on watch and phone and fingers crossed the car is sleeping as expected. Suspect the app is causing issues perhaps with the recent car updates? Sadly from reading GitHub the dev has been struggling with Covid.

    Octopus Energy, including Intelligent and go

    Thanks - So I had Tesla watch with background polling off and also in travel mode, so it shouldn't ever wake the car. I also had IO off. But the car never slept! IO now reconnected and its sleeping....as it was when I just did the Watch app yesterday. I do wonder if there is something when both...

    yeah so yesterday I reset password, added in Teslamate, all ok. Added in Tesla watch all ok. Added in IO and car never slept Today I've reset, added in teslamate and all ok. Now re-adding IO before Tesla Watch this time!

    I concur that is expected behaviour, but as per my pic above my car is never sleeping. Have Disconnected car from IO and just about to reconnect it!

    @upgraded thanks! There is definitely something weird going on with my car! Disconnected the car from IO, it didn't sleep at all. Changed password (which resets all the auth) and it went to sleep !

    Octopus Energy, including Intelligent and go

    I'm tracking down a reason why my car isn't sleeping. IO and Watch for Tesla are the 2 remaining candidates! Is there anyone on here with IO and Teslamate or TeslaFi who can see if their car is sleeping at all? Even with smart charging off my car wasn't sleeping. I've changed the password and...

    TeslaMate [megathread]

    yes charging was overnight, it finished at 530am, car hasn't slept since then. Reset the password and it's slept straight away! Re-auth'd Teslamate and it's stayed asleep......only Intelligent Octopus or Watch for Tesla left as culprits now!

    TeslaMate [megathread]

    I've an issue with my Y not sleeping. I reset the Tesla password and it slept as expected. I've slowly been enabling things, and then last night it stopped sleeping again. I see these warnings & disconnects in the Teslamate log, could it be a communication issue that is causing the issues...

    Octopus Energy, including Intelligent and go

    Mine just went weird and gave me a 30min charge all night - until I remembered I'd changed my Tesla password, so it therefore couldn't communicate. Forgetting the car from the Octopus app and re-adding it gave me a proper schedule.

    Does anyone automate the backup of Teslamate within a script? I've got it running fine when running the script from a command line within my archlinux on Raspberry PI. However I have added the script as a service, and when it automatically runs at midnight, the created file is 0 bytes The...

    At home, not plugged in. It works fine, if you don't want a circa 1% drain per 12 hours just toggle the smart charging on/off when needed in the app.

    Forgot I hadn't turned my IO off in the app! Teslamate shows the constant waking up very nicely!

    Octopus Energy, including Intelligent and go

    How do Octopus know that the car has been plugged in by the user in the above scenario and wants charging? I suspect that is why they wake it up so often. I just toggle on/off in app.

    Octopus Energy, including Intelligent and go

    Nope to all the above, I set the car to 100% and let IO charge to 80 when needed.

    Last night I had IO on, a schedule was created but this morning the car was still on 15% so no charge was sent! any ideas on troubleshooting at all? Octopus app doesn't seem to show anything!!

    Model Y quieter ride?

    FWIW I checked the 4 rubber stoppers on my Y using soapy water, one wasn't touching the guard at all! two small adjustments and all 4 touching and I'm sure the car is quieter now.

    Adding batteries to 12 year old solar system (and considering heat source pump)

    This is obviously quite key, surely this must be written down somewhere? I've been on Google, the gov.uk FITS and ofgen sites and can't see anything. The only thing I can find is about not expanding it past it's initial capacity.

    Adding batteries to 12 year old solar system (and considering heat source pump)

    Smart meters were meant to measure exactly what you export vs the 50% payment I'm on now, so I suspect that's why it's important, ie if all solar is diverted to a battery and nothing exported, I'd get no export payments. Have you seen anything official on a document/website about changing and...

    Adding batteries to 12 year old solar system (and considering heat source pump)

    Yes I am, didn't realise I'd lose the FIT payments, although not sure I will? I think they just pay me a % of what I generate as it was all installed before smart meters etc so they cannot and don't measure what I actually really export. This seems to say I will be fine - Solar Battery with...
