    Solar pulling from grid vs Powerwall [in small amounts]

    pulling Little bit from the grid is normal, Tesla powerwall inverter Is set to grid following, once in a while gateway check if there’s power from the grid by pulling or sending back power to zero out what it has pulled out from the grid, it also the grid act like Transformer and it does this...

    Home Energy Use Discrepancy Emporia vs

    In my OPINION the Emporia Vue is more accurate than Tesla app when the sun is shining and Solar is charging the powerwall, but when just the power wall or grid powering the house, (NIGHT TIME)Tesla and emporia measurement are almost identical, I think the Tesla app showings more when solar is...

    Grid outage, Powerwall drops loads for minutes

    System specification? how many power wall? solar size? whole house back up or critical back up only?

    PW owners, summer is coming/here. What is your reserve percentage?

    5-15%, but most of the time it end up 30%-Up before the solar start charging the powerwall again… $0.46 per kw is not cheap and we used about 50-65kw a day…

    Grid outage, Powerwall drops loads for minutes

    We had a power outage last week, my battery was at 8%, lights didn’t flicker or anything but my solar delta inverter went offline for about 7 minutes… my solar inverter was at peak 12.5k that time…

    Is this normal? One of my powerwall is almost 15k… nominal_full_pack_energy":42811 nominal_full_pack_energy":13950 nominal_full_pack_energy":13999 nominal_full_pack_energy":14862 I been cycling my power from 100%-5% everyday for the first month since it got installed i was able to get 41kw from...

    Solar Inverter Undersize

    Its almost a month now since inspection is finished but I haven’t received PTO yet… while im waiting i installed a sense energy monitor, it seems tesla monitor is reading more than what is suppose to be, with all 3 solar inverter pushing about 4000w the tesla app show 12.5kw while sense only...

    local network access to the gateway completely unreliable

    No Solar Production with Power Outage

    95% and up of the powerwall the gateway will stop the solar inverter to produce power until it falls below 95%…

    What is your reserve percentage set to and why?

    I have 3 pw and 18kw solar sys. I set mine to 10%. Price per kw here is $0.36. Our home average usage is about 55-65 kw a day. Pretty much on a cloudy day im a 100% self power and on sunny day i send about 15-30kw after the battery is full…

    Solar Inverter Undersize

    Tesla estimated with 17.2kw (the highest package) partial sunny day, looks like its not really clipping but when I scroll on the app from 9:30am - 3:30pm my system is bouncing between 12-12.7kw/h. it doesn’t look flat on top because the inverter always trying to limit the output to 12kw…...

    Solar Inverter Undersize

    My current dc/ac is 1.52 ratio and when I compare it with 1.3 ratio max (by delta spec) i get 3000kw more… I’ve seen 13.7kw for couple timed mostly 12.7kw and it will pull down to 12.2kw..

    Solar Inverter Undersize

    When i talked with tesla installer my system supposed to be a powerwall2+ with tesla solar inverter but supply chain is short and they had to reschedule my installation date 3 months longer that I expected… I live at west side of the Island… Waipahu to be exact… i just want to produce as much i...

    Solar Inverter Undersize

    My estimated was about 18000kw/year but my bill usage is about 22000-25000kw/year.. but i told tesla to put as much panel they can fit on my roof to minimize my bills which came out of 43-425 watts… I believe I should have 2-7.6kw tesla inverter (perfect fair with my system) instead of the 3...

    Solar Inverter Undersize

    When i talked to the Tesla installers he told me that I supposed to get 3 powerwall 2+ With 2 7.6kw Tesla inverter but due to short on supply chain they had to go with (3-4kw) Delta Inverter they have in stock… I believe my 200A service panel should be able to handle a bigger inverters.. the...

    Solar Inverter Undersize

    Hawaii don’t matter the season, summer rain too because weather here is unpredictable the only difference is from April - September has a longer daylight and October- March is much less daylight. Let say 350-400Kw a month losses but with bigger (right) inverter thats about $120-$150 more to be...

    Solar Inverter Undersize

    I know it’s clipping alot because when i looked at MProfessional data with the delta inverters most of the inverter is producing about AC 5000W but since the inverter is rated output of AC 3800W-4000W thats 3kw /h for 3 inverters. 3*5= 15… During this month is mostly cloudy and raining day, if...

    Solar Inverter Undersize

    I live in Hawaii, cost of per kw here is around $0.33-$0.40 per kw it depends on season. My bill normally is around $750-$850/month. I asked Tesla to put as much panel they can put on my roof to maximize my saving. Tesla estimated my panel will only produce about 17,733 kWh /yr with their...

    Solar Inverter Undersize

    System info: Solar Panels: 43 of 425watt = 18,275 watts Solar Inverts: 3 of Delta M4-TL-US = 12,000 watts. Battery: 3 PowerWall 2 = 40.5 KW Storage I understand that Tesla do clipping to maximize production but my system is doing to much, from 10am - 3:30 my solar output is max out to 12.2kwh...
