    Powerwall stuck in standby - 0%; won't recharge.

    Have had PW+ since last year and doing well. No issues after initial shakedown then.... Nov 3 suddenly goes from 100 to 0. Since then nada. -- PW slow fading green bar Did reset Did full shutdown and disconnect for 10min Tried connecting to both gateway and backup gateway -- unable to...

    MASTER THREAD: Powering house or other things with Model 3

    I would submit that most consumer purchase decisions come with options available; not warranty considerations at 7 years. From the company side decision it's also sales potential of one product vs another within own product line vs external competition. To date, Tesla is had NO incentive to...

    MASTER THREAD: Powering house or other things with Model 3

    Our 3 has 63k miles on it and 90% still at 4 years. Our Y has 37k miles with still charging to original miles on it. If one daisy chains onto an existing PW2 -- it limits 5kw discharge per hour. Even if one uses this for 3 hours after PW2 exhausted, 15kw is not a significant deep draw...

    MASTER THREAD: Powering house or other things with Model 3

    This is my point. There's been this 'void your warranty' scare that EV batteries will suffer being leveraged to support V2G/V2H solutions -- it's quite the opposite where EV batteries will have a walk-in-the-park level stress compared to a regular daily commute usage. It's a BUSINESS...

    MASTER THREAD: Powering house or other things with Model 3

    Never verified and highly doubt Tesla would go to older tech and using higher cost materials. EV cells perform quite well and under significantly more stressful environments then the PW. In the case of daisy chaining an EV to PW, you're capping draw a 5KW per hour. That's sipping a...

    MASTER THREAD: Powering house or other things with Model 3

    Tesla wants to sell batteries -- aka Powerwall. Until there's enough pressure internally or external competition, Musk isn't going to change this. I CAN see a future where an adaptor for Powerwall will become available to attach to Tesla EVs to daisy chain to support at least V2H/V2G/VPP...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA (The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch), permit, 12 V3 stalls

    92130 resident here -- 32°57'44.7"N 117°11'21.9"W · 6030 Village Way, San Diego, CA 92130 This is probably going to be in the two story garage next to the chase branch is my guess. There's a Jersey Mike and Bonchon in that strip with a ColdStone Cremery coming soon too. Cross the complex...

    New Powerwall Advanced Options [Toggles for charging from and discharging to grid from powerwalls]

    no SGIP - The Fed credit is a bit more fuzzy on ability to claim and utilize this function it seems. You're probably right on the NBCs, but I have no real control over that unless I really play with the rates since no ability to toggle the rate of discharge during peak hours. Regardless, I...

    New Powerwall Advanced Options [Toggles for charging from and discharging to grid from powerwalls]

    Just found out about this yesterday from brother. Here's datapoint: SDGE; Telsa installed PW+solar. Owned. on EV rate. No SGIP Able to fully enable export everything and grid charging. So Peak hours - PW2 discharges steadily for about three hours to reserve set at 20% (still want...

    My new Model Y's range SUCKS

    Admittedly we have a lead foot -- 900+ consumption on accelerations and ave 365kw/mi with the first 200 miles so far; but having fun with the car at the moment. standard settings on the regular rims too. There's a bit of vampire drain with sentry mode and climate overheating so turned those...

    Lowball Trade-in Offer from Tesla

    @disturbed932 - no didn't need it to clear. Did chase deposit and had funds to pay ACH on Tesla app for the balance. Simple phone call to the local delivery, they removed the trade-in and it updated immediately. @Collier007 - Carmax was plenty busy and lots of transactions ongoing. If...

    Members with Model Y’s what are the upgrades for purchase

    A bit disappointed to see homelink not installed already. PITA now have to order it. FSD $7k on app. Model 3 getting the garage still because of this.

    Lowball Trade-in Offer from Tesla

    Took delivery today. Tesla dropped tradin by $500 day before. Went to carmax and got $1100 higher 4400 vs 5500. Out the door in 1 hour and carmax was quite busy too....but efficient. Carvana came in at 5335 and more virtual experience. Did touchless delivery today. Car dropped off in...

    Delivery Process - created and staffed by clowns

    Like most things -- anything that starts falling out the regular stream of standard operations becomes problematic until a highly skilled employee usually in Tier 3-4 gets on the case. Tiers 1-2 don't know squat outside the normal streams like any system. You want cost effective streamlined...

    Please pay off your remaining balance prior to delivery?

    Got text to confirm cash payment; next day VIN in source code appeared, then MVPA. 3rd day (yesterday) : text for scheduling delivery and link for options. Able to payoff anytime after the initial text. We scheduled yesterday for Jun 3. Paid off ACH today. VIN appears on main page now...

    See VIN on the source code

    I did see MY Blue/Black down here in SD parking lot last week -- that's what gave me hope that production restarted in earnest.

    SF bay check for VIN. Just got mine.

    So got text for delivery today. Jun 3 - Carlsbad ,SoCal - MSM/Black 19" no FSD day 1 ressie Sequence of events this week: Text for final payment cash confirm Final payment on page becomes available MVPA showed VIN along with VIN search Text for delivery 2 days later -- offered only 3 days...

    SF bay check for VIN. Just got mine.

    My bad -- No VIN on the splash page RN still on the MVPA the VIN is listed as the same as the source code.

    SF bay check for VIN. Just got mine.

    And just like that MVPA posted -- still no VIN or call! weird.

    Ordred May 2019-still no vin

    Day 1 reservation: MSM/black 19" no FSD -- just got txt for final payment; no VIN - BUT source code pulled 103xx. So finally something -- any they want final payment -- but no delivery date, no VIN -- not giving more free loan $$$$
  22. M

    SF bay check for VIN. Just got mine.

    103xx - MSM/Black/19" /no FSD -- Day 1 reservation -- No in order page --- only reason I checked was got a text for CASH final payment, but no delivery date assignment. Weird to be requesting final payment before delivery date or official VIN assignement?
  23. M

    See VIN on the source code

    103xx -- checked after got text for final payment -- but no call for delivery. Did people get final payment request prior to delivery date setup?

    Anyone get a delivery update this week for a Midnight Silver Metallic order?

    Day 1 order - MSM/black, no FSD 19" - got 'final payment' text today out of nowhere. And submit final payment. Did source code search: success! 5Yxxxx103xx No delivery date calls. Do people just pay their cash ahead before VIN or call? Financed our first one but this one they can...

    Got a call for delivery

    :( Day 1 reservation with Model 3 --- no love still. MSM 19" AWD-LR no FSD. Sitting and waiting; waiting; waiting
  26. M

    Got a call for delivery

    Day 1 ressie and at final stages awaiting VIN -- SoCal -- no call yet. :( --Wonder for those getting calls -- are they PUP or not? Noted that PUP is 'free' option right now and since at the final stage, don't have the option to select it anyways.

    Anyone taking delivery of Model Y this week?

    If that's the Carlsbad facility, please let us know how the experience is. We're in San Diego and 'patiently' waiting for our next steps: first day - LR-AWD 19" MSM black interior - no FSD

    "Prepare for delivery" - Telsa page changes - No Email

    There's less of S curve like with the 3 and really need to know where to ship bunches of cars out into which locations - so they need to get everyone's ducks started to line up and be ready to take on delivery when the car arrives. That means get everyone's financing and paperwork ready to go...

    "Prepare for delivery" - Telsa page changes - No Email

    Reported on Reddit already Log in to your Tesla page. New updates and registration process all being populated. No dates for delivery, but the initial stages for setup is active. 19" AWD-LR - Black Interior; Regular Autopilot --- San Diego, CA.

    Confirmed Model Y scheduled delivery

    With the Tax Credit - $3.5k difference only now. Two years later, the manufacturing costs decreased and savings subsequently passed on to consumers. Do you think legacy makers and dealers would do the same?

    MASTER THREAD: Powering house or other things with Model 3

    Tesla cars have an onboard inverter. It should be able to convert without an issue back to AC. The tech isn't the issue but the politics with Utilities and the finances of Tesla in selling PW2 for the same function. My suggested solution for Tesla -- allow piggybacking tesla cars to the PW2...

    MASTER THREAD: Powering house or other things with Model 3

    That used to be true with the old PW1. PW2 use the same batteries coming off the line as the Model 3 - hence the shortage of PW2 packs and installations last year because of the battery shortage issue out of the GF. All the tech is already onboard our Tesla cars to provide the bidirectional...

    StormWatch - San Diego County

    Well that's not good if the PW2 fails with 75% SOC left and not delivering anything. I do wonder what happens when the draw is greater than the inverter supplies and if it just shuts down and restarts after a cycle (~30min?) and powers back up to allow appropriate draw. Ie time for the owner...

    PW + Charging overnight --- and power goes out at 1AM

    @MP3Mike - Thanks for the reference. That was back in May. Hopefully coming soon is closer than further. That's exactly an easy program fix since our App clearly is able to tell backup is in progress, all it needs to do is make sure cars in the app don't charge and drain the powerwall...

    PW + Charging overnight --- and power goes out at 1AM

    So this happened a few weeks ago......SDGE with PV and PW2 and Model 3 that charges overnight. Typically set on cost savings with a reserve 25%. Well power went out at 1AM. And our Model 3 basically drained the entire PW2. So -- how can Tesla address this issue where one tech item...

    Sdge, Ev Tou5, Solar, Powerwall And Sgip?

    Grandfathered NEM 1.0 and made the switch over to TOU5 --- saving quite a bundle just because we charge so much at night on the EV. IIRC, break even is low -- something around 250kwh (700miles driving monthly). So any average driver should come out ahead on switching. Also have PW and...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Del Mar Heights Road (CLOSED 16 Sep 2021, 18 urban stalls)

    Getting in/out will be easier once the construction lane closes off and allows faster entry off DelMar Heights. Remember to download your Shake Shack app to order ahead for the food to be ready once you plug in :) Lots of nice shops to dwell in OnePaseo. Coffee, desserts, quick bites and even...

    New SDG&E rate: EV-TOU-5

    We have a 4kw PV NEM 1.0 and Tesla 3 that went 25k miles last year along with pool that runs in the night. We moved over to TOU5 and saved bundles. $16 is a flat fee and IIRC the straight calculation is ~750 miles a month gets you to break even on the battery consumption alone. We've saved...

    2500 mile round trip AWD ... findings

    that's the challenge of ABRP; it doesn't allow to you plan the charge departure automatically. It uses SOC % arrival as the bottom and how to fast charge enough to get to the next station at 10%. Take the 16 point route you have, then start selecting the chargers where you'd like to have a...

    2500 mile round trip AWD ... findings

    We did and it was great. Funny that it started off in Europe first time around. We preplanned it ahead, but still loaded into car's favorites just in case as a backup

    Grand Canyon south loop. It will be a stretch for this lead foot.

    We just completed San Diego-Grand Canyon -Phoenix -San Diego loop in Model 3 LR Aero. 1700 miles total with 268 wh/mi which ironically our average to date on the car .. Tires are nearly replacement time too. It was wild to watch the consumption on the climbs, but even cooler watching the...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Del Mar Heights Road (CLOSED 16 Sep 2021, 18 urban stalls)

    Area cleared out for most of the charges -- a few picnic tables in the corner. All setup. Tried to plug in even -- no juice going through. Any day now. Getting up there to 3rd floor is a PITA as the turns onto the ramp are prone to fender benders from the turns especially coming down...
