    Aggressive Snow Driving Dynamics, Winter Recharging

    My experience with MY on snow has not been very impressive so far. Last time I've driven AWD in snow was >5yrs ago, it was a Mitsubishi Montero 3.5l on proper winter tires, so maybe I forgot how to do it properly. MY tends to slide off the path on a slick road, even with minimal acceleration...

    Y still does not qualify for $2500 MA rebate after the $3K price cut

    Well, turns out it wasn't the end. I appealed and was successfully approved for a rebate today! To recap, Black MY (demo) with a mark-up that brought the grand total under 50k. Yay!

    Trying to reuse the existing wiring for HPWC. A sanity check for me, please?

    Correct. It’s not on the schematic, but the conduit running down the wall with 4awg is 1 inch.

    Trying to reuse the existing wiring for HPWC. A sanity check for me, please?

    Hi there all and thanks for all the inputs. I've managed to install the system and am expecting town's inspector tomorrow. There were a few little tweaks along the way with the most notable being using this Morris connector that will allow me to add another branch for power sharing in the...

    Trying to reuse the existing wiring for HPWC. A sanity check for me, please?

    Thanks everyone for very good feedback! Dropped the proposed plan with some schematics at the town's building department. Will see what inspector thinks - will make sure to report back here.

    Trying to reuse the existing wiring for HPWC. A sanity check for me, please?

    Actually, looking at the manual it seems that I'll either need 100A to a subpanel, or separate 60A branches from the Main for the power sharing. So I guess at this point I'll just go with the junction box / insulated in-line AL/CU splice connectors as Paul suggested above.

    Trying to reuse the existing wiring for HPWC. A sanity check for me, please?

    Thank you! I was thinking subpanel in case I’d expand by adding a second HPWC in the future. In this instance I assume the same AL feeding wire will still suffice since HPWC can do power sharing and all I’ll need is to add a second circuit breaker / wire, correct?

    Trying to reuse the existing wiring for HPWC. A sanity check for me, please?

    Sorry, can't find a way to edit the post. This might do the trick. It will be fairly easy to add a switch in case of an upgrade. In any case I intend to submit this to the town and obtain their buy-in.

    Trying to reuse the existing wiring for HPWC. A sanity check for me, please?

    Thank you!! That simplifies things a bit. Are you referring to this type of connector? (Point taken re 100 amps)

    Y still does not qualify for $2500 MA rebate after the $3K price cut

    Received a rejection email yesterday. Will try to provide arguments citing their FAQ, but my feeling is that I'll fail. My MY is black, with price adjustment for demo. A good thing that cheers me up is what a joy this car is.

    Trying to reuse the existing wiring for HPWC. A sanity check for me, please?

    Hi all, I have a disused "Three conductor" (neutral and two hots) 4 AWG SEU AL XHHW wire from the previous HVAC condenser unit routed towards the area where I’d like to locate the Tesla wall charging unit (about a 30ft run). The existing wire is rated at 75 amps / 90 deg C, which gives me some...

    Y still does not qualify for $2500 MA rebate after the $3K price cut

    Hi folks, heard from the Natick Tesla advisor that the rebate rules have changed in a sense that the destination fees are now excluded from the 50k limit and stock MY now qualifies. Taking delivery in a few days, really hoping that this will play out.
