    Charge your Tesla at home using clean energy ONLY

    Sure. This was yesterday. Sun was shining nice (see my solaredge inverter's curve below), I came back home around 2pm, plugged in and the optimizer brought my house consumption curve to zero by charging my Tesla with the appropriate current, until I had to leave (I unplugged around 4.30pm)...

    Wiki Belgium and the Netherlands: Charging infrastructure (Thuis laden)

    “Easier” I don’t know, maybe if you don’t have a charger and have to buy a new one. Also it costs more than twice than the Tesla wall connector v2. But thanks for the information, at least I got my answer (no interest from the community —> I can stop the effort).

    Charge your Tesla at home using clean energy ONLY

    Hi, my name is Dario and I have developed a system that makes possible to charge your Tesla using clean energy ONLY from your solar panels. I named it ChOp (charge optimizer). If it rains, you don’t charge. If you’re cooking your meal and using up your current production, you don’t charge. But...

    What other tech stock to consider?

    About the same here. And it's free-falling again. I'm here for the long run, too, but this is quite unresting. Let's see what Powell has to say.

    Extended Warranty Switzerland (Tesla Anschlussgarantieversicherung)

    Ok thanks. Did you (or anybody else) already have to claim a reimbursement? How was the process? I guess you pay for the repair first and then you claim the money back?

    Extended Warranty Switzerland (Tesla Anschlussgarantieversicherung)

    You mean that Tesla doesn’t but Helvetia does? Or you mean that it’s only for Switzerland?

    What other tech stock to consider?

    Don’t think so. A lot of people is in denial with Tesla even though they deep down admire the vehicles. Anything with comparable range and performance is the perfect product to pull the trigger and join the EV world. On top of that, Air is a gorgeous machine at a reasonable price.

    Bird's eye view coming?

    I wonder how they’re going to stitch together images with different colour depth (or even colour and b/w for ap2 cars). But, yeah, it would be a cool feature.

    MCU2 upgrade mogelijk, maar hoe?

    I specifically asked to keep the old one, and they told me that this was not going to be an option offered in EU (although I read reports from NL where this was the case...). A bit annoying but the SeC is checking.

    MCU2 upgrade mogelijk, maar hoe?

    I had my MCU2 upgrade done yesterday and I paid 2770 :eek: I'll contact the SeC straight away.

    Could you share the part number that you used?

    MCU2 upgrade mogelijk, maar hoe?

    Just received confirmation that my S75D AP2 will be upgraded next week to AP3 and MCU2. I can't wait. Unfortunately it seems like in Europe they don't offer the 500 EUR discount to keep the old screen. Or maybe it's just the "price to pay" for being an early upgrader in EU. I just hope it won't...

    Upgrade to MCU2 and AP HW3.0 [Europe]

    Cool! Which configuration do you have, AP2 or AP2.5?

    Upgrade to MCU2 and AP HW3.0 [Europe]

    Yeah, but technically I didn’t say UK is in EU, only that it was good news ;-)

    Upgrade to MCU2 and AP HW3.0 [Europe]

    Yes, and it even was an AP1 car for what it's worth. Definitely very good news for us EU folks.

    That I can do. I’ve been waiting for it since day 1 of the announcement :)

    Update AP 2.5 naar AP 3.0: bevestigd!

    Does it mean that you were upgraded from AP2.0 to AP3? If so, I think you are the 1st in EU. Yesterday my AP2 car was being upgraded at the service center but then they realized that it wasn't AP2.5 and they stopped because non-eligible.

    Update AP 2.5 naar AP 3.0: bevestigd!

    I'm following this closely and I always find the most up-to-date information on Steven Peeters's youtube channel. It seems that there is a session planned in September that should shake things up a bit... fingers crossed.

    Stock split tax implications for non-US shareholders

    So guys, the day has arrived. Who's selling before closing bell tonight? Personally I think I'll hold, I don't have the guts to sell in the middle of such a monster rally.

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    I bought mine in Dec 2016, it's an AP2 car, and it came without power liftgate (that option was included in the premium package and I decide not to take it). Are you telling me that because of this I cannot get the MCU2 upgrade when it is available in Europe?

    Stock split tax implications for non-US shareholders

    I'm in the same boat, and I was also thinking about selling prior the split and then buying again after. When would you do that? Since they are giving the 4 new shares on the 28th to whom held shares on the 21st, I'd sell on the 28th before closure and then buy again on the 31st. I assume that I...

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    I think I read about somebody having his MCU upgraded to MCU2 in Toronto. EDIT: Here's the link But definitely none in Europe so far, it's not even mentioned in the Tesla website, only in the US version.

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    It's anyway kind of good news for us Europeans that cannot get a MCU2 upgrade, provided it reaches the continent, of course.

    Extended Warranty Switzerland (Tesla Anschlussgarantieversicherung)

    I live in Belgium and I actually got a mail from Tesla offering the warranty extension, but with a Swiss company (helvetia.ch). The curious thing is that I was interested, I contacted Helvetia (first using the contact form, then on the phone) and they didn't know a thing about it. I'm still...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Almost outrageous. In Europe HW2 fellows like me (who have paid for FSD long ago) are stuck (MCU2 upgrade not available, HW3 upgrade only coming from HW2.5) and are praying that the eMMC doesn't die before (if ever) the upgrade becomes available... while in the US cars are getting AP-upgraded...

    Wall connector charges at 22kWh but Tesla only gets 7 kWh??

    Just to wrap it up: I finally got a call from "Tesla charging installations EUR" that confirmed that (dixit) with such configuration (3x230V no neutral) the maximum that I can get in AC is 7.4kW. The 22 kW that I see in the MCU are due to a bug that will be solved soon in one of the upcoming...

    MCU2 upgrade in Europe

    The Infotainment upgrade page on Tesla.com is not even showing up for the European market. No MCU upgrades, only some FSD ones and only from HW2.5 (reports in UK, NL, Norway and Switzerland as far as I could keep track). I wouldn't hold my breath until that happens...

    Upgrade to MCU2 and AP HW3.0 [Europe]

    Then it will probably be Canada's turn, then China maybe. Europe to follow... as we have seen for other things. My guess is 2021. Hope my MCU1 outlives my hopes :-(

    Advice for Summer Tires in Europe 245/45R19

    If I stick to the criteria of low efficiency and low noise, the best choice seems to be the Michelin Primacy 3 with the acoustic foam. They are rated: efficiency: B - rain: A - noise: 69 dB. The Pilot sport 4 acoustic are rated C - A - 72. I couldn't find anything better than the Primacy 3...

    Wall connector charges at 22kWh but Tesla only gets 7 kWh??

    Thanks. Any link that I can check? In the post you linked I could find this: Erea 3PH Scheidingstransfo / 3x230/400 V / 3x230/400 V / 20000 va energy ef - SPT20000/BTE kopen? - Elektrobode.nl. At that price, though, it’s not really an option for my household. Maybe by the time we buy our 2nd EV...

    Wall connector charges at 22kWh but Tesla only gets 7 kWh??

    Thanks both. In this picture you see that the connection was done the way wooter proposed. The dip switch also is in position 8 (max current). Yet I get no more than 7kW. I guess that’s it then. But why do you say I could get 8.5kW?

    Wall connector charges at 22kWh but Tesla only gets 7 kWh??

    Yes. This is what I have: Distributienetspanning 3 x 230V 1 x enkelvoudig uurtarief, Driefasig, 40 A, 15.9 kVA So, indeed I should get 16.5kW (that's by the way what I get when I charge at work). I did on the 26th of May... still waiting.

    Vraag over Tesla Wall Connector aansluiting

    Sorry to cross-post but I'm also struggling with doubts with a TWC and a three-phase 3x230V in Belgium. Maybe you can help me? I asked Tesla and they totally ignored me (very frustrating). My post is here: Wall connector charges at 22kWh but Tesla only gets 7 kWh??

    Wall connector charges at 22kWh but Tesla only gets 7 kWh??

    Hi, sure thanks for your answers (yes it's a duplicate thread, I wrongly chose model 3 and asked to move it - no answer for a while so I opened a new one). Yes, it’s the car in the signature. it seems that in Belgium the earthing scheme is TT, so I wouldn’t change that. On the other hand when...

    Wall connector charges at 22kWh but Tesla only gets 7 kWh??

    That seems to be what Tesla advises to do (see excerpt from the manual). I'll call Tesla on Monday (it's already Saturday night in here). Where do you think the hiccup is? Anything wrong done by my electrician?

    Wall connector charges at 22kWh but Tesla only gets 7 kWh??

    I get about 135V. More or less the same if I check L1-G and L2-G.
