    Are these operating modes possible?

    During off-peak I'd like the house to run off solar with the excess recharging the Powerwalls, and then excess solar to the grid once the Powerwalls are charged; and NEVER discharge the Powerwalls during this period. During peak I'd like the house to run off solar with the excess going to the...

    What Factors does Cost Saving Mode Take into Consideration?

    Obviously, Cost Saving mode takes the different TOU rate periods into consideration. But does it take NBCs into consideration? How about battery cycle life? Or the round efficiency loss? I'm assuming it only takes the rate periods into consideration but was wondering if anyone knows for sure.

    At what Powerwall level is gateway supposed to command solar to start generating again?

    My Gateway is inconsistent at what level it commands solar to start generating again. I'm currently is a PSPS. Once the Powerwalls are full and solar has been commanded off, it appears my Gateway normally commands solar to start generating again when the Powerwalls are down to about 97%. I...

    Will the Tesla App get Appliance Detection?

    My understanding is that the Gateway uses a Neurio PB1 for power monitoring. Some Neurio home monitoring models have an app that can detect and learn to monitor appliance power consumption. I'm wondering if Tesla has any plans to incorporate appliance detection into the app or if the Neurio...

    How does the hood latch operate?

    Not a Tesla car owner. Popping over from the energy forum. There is a debate on another forum on why hoods are accidentally opening while driving. How does the hood latch mechanism work on Teslas? My understanding is a single button push will fully release the latch on a Tesla. There is...

    I have a newer 6kW Enphase/Panasonic system and an older (2009) 4kW string system. The system is installed on an uninhabited metal building. I'm planning on getting 2 Powerwalls. My understanding is the Powerwalls will work with both inverters but I'm concerned about the old string inverter. It...

    Definition of SGIP Critical Loads vs Non-Critical Loads

    I've hit a little bit of a snag in my SGIP Residential Equity Resiliency incentive application. My configuration is for a whole home backup (partially due to the cost/complexity of having a separate critical loads panel). My application has been kicked back because the answer to "Indicate...

    Does the Gateway cell modem support the Verizon network?

    Does the Gateway cell modem support the Verizon network? Also, how quick/seamless is the fallback if WiFi/Ethernet is the primary internet access and access is lost? Thanks

    Will the Gateway automatically reset if demand exceeds capability?

    If power is lost and the Powerwalls shut down because the load exceeds demand, will they try again after a certain time period? Or will I need to manually need to reset the Gateway after I've removed the excess load?

    Is Tesla bound to the Powerwall Purchase & Home Improvement Agrement?

    I've committed to purchase and install 2 powerwalls from Tesla. I'm concerned that they've underestimate the installation cost since my system is more complicated than most. I've tried to communicate my concerns with Tesla but communication is a one way street with them. Can they refuse to...
