    Considering going with backup only vs self powered

    I had my PTO 20 days ago and have been on self powered. I will probably switch to backup based on the information this thread provided since I am with FPL based on net metering 1:1 Sounds like powerwalls are money wasted for someone residing out of hurricane territory but the ability to operate...

    Considering going with backup only vs self powered

    Superb post. I have the exact system size system, powerwalls and same power consumption as well as being in Florida. I have been having this debate regarding backup only Vs self powered. Are you still doing this? Do you discharge the powerwalls here and there?

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    Again I want to thank everyone for the great input! Exactly what I expected. As noted earlier I have a model 3. I live in Florida and I want a backup energy source as well as solar production What is curious is I had a 25KW generac generator that died which powered both panels without...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    Hey thanks for input, yes I would suggest getting all the drawings and plans in advance

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    I am already paying a small fortune. At least if it has a cost I could make a decision. I still think they didn’t properly check what was on each panel and this decision should have been made ahead of time ( like I didn’t have months and months) and the powerwall being outdoors installed not...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    I couldn’t open the attachment and thread doesn’t mention island mode or surge shield.

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    I just saw the installation plans and they do have 3 powerwalls and 1 powerwall separately. Mongo as you said they can’t change it.

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    No he is not, all this time he has been installing solaredge things. spoke to Remote manager. After lengthy discussion ( I don’t want a pool pump with a powerwall and 5kw of solar ) we may do what you suggested keeping 4 powerwalls together. But He says we need to submit again permit to have 4...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    I am thinking of maybe installing/placing an object such as a tree bush, scarecrow in front of the power walls to block some of the sun, it gets very hot here in Florida.

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    There’s only one gentleman working on electrical side (not solar installation)he is not an engineer, I told him exactly what you advised me Mongo. He wants to install surge shield even with 4 powerwalls. Thanks a lot for the help in such a short notice.

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    Thank you very much for the very informative posts. I will make sure to check shield works based on above post. At this point in time they are probably going to have to sit in the sun. I don’t see the crew restarting in the garage. But at least I learned they were installed there because...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    I found out Main A runs only the pool and nothing else until AFTER they installed the powerwalls. I really didn’t know how my house was wired. I was shown 2 gateways on Tesla app : one with 3 and another with 1 powerwall I inquired how come I had such a setup. Aren’t 4 together easier ? 30%...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    Could the longevity Be better being inside vs outside in direct sunlight 6 hours a day? I have plenty of space in the garage. This is expensive gear and the whole systems is not cheap. Do they really need to be next to The main panel? My garage is 60 feet away. If it was possible to run a cable...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    Thanks for the prompt replies. I really appreciate it. I will discuss with them since they will be coming. I am not interested in backup power for the pool. Like MP3Mike said I would rather have 4 parallel for the house. So 15 kw together for one panel maybe not possible but 4 powerwalls...

    Bizarre Installation? 4 Powerwalls 15 kWh system.

    Tomorrow is day 3 of my install Florida I signed up for solar 15 kw and 4 Powerwalls. My meter happens to be opposite to my garage divides into Panel A and Panel B. Panel A only runs the pool Panel B which goes all the way to the garage runs everything else including 2 air conditioners well...

    Panasonic vs. Hanwha?

    I am On your exact same boat. Same in Florida and exact same size and cost as well as panels. I haven’t spoken to Tesla. Came here after noticing the panels of this unheard brand. Do Panasonic hace longer warranty on materials as well as output. I have 4 power Walls to install as well and I...

    Why I recommend AGAINST buying a Tesla

    I owned a 2007 M6. That V10 sounded gorgeous. I had issues with SMG (sequential manual gearbox) I used to get 8 mpg in the city. I was every 3 days in the gas station - my second home. Now I only see gas stations as a fast way to buy milk. Lol.

    Why I recommend AGAINST buying a Tesla

    I Obviously don’t have experience with the Tesla but even if I have to pay for a new battery and motors. I think still ahead vs a BMW //M car with transmission / clutch / electrical issues and brakes which are very common problems. I would still upgrade Tesla to something else before running out...

    Why I recommend AGAINST buying a Tesla

    I went the opposite from multiple //M BMW cars in the past 15 years. Including several M3, Z4Mcoupe, M6 and last a 2016 M5 : the performance on P100D and P3D were above and beyond plus the MPG is insane on a Tesla in comparison. An M5 loaded is $140 K and the depreciation is insane. To the...

    Sentry Mode USB flash drive failure costing me thousands

    Same thing happened to me with slow write speed once they are full. You have to erase data/reformat and it will work again. I would recommend you purchase a larger drive and have a spare one as well. I bought a Sandisk 256 GB and works well. I have a 128 GB back up as well. If I get the...

    What colour to get for Model 3

    W/W here I PAID for white; now free - great deal - pearl white is amazing! of course I am biased. I did wait 8 weeks to get that combo at the time and was well worth it.

    Anyone regret white interior?

    Had for almost a month and I am liking it every day more and more. I have a Weimaraner (dog) that goes to work every day with me. White interior staying much cleaner than on my prior car which was black. White looks amazing. I had read so many posts about the interior on the model 3 being subpar...

    Using Phone as Key - Stolen Phone

    I have PIN to drive setup. If they have my car, phone, keycard and my money. They still can’t drive off with the car without the 5 digit pin. I can log in with another phone (wife’s) remotely and after Tesla passcode turn on the car type pin and drive it home without above objects.

    HW2.5 even after April 12th build date

    Seems most performance models in the US were built with 3.0 based on forums feedback.

    Performance Waiting Room

    As an update I couldn’t find the 265 vs 264 thing in file area but after research found that HEVC =265. Raptor had already pointed it out ! Omg should have read his post closer. I have HEVC as format when I checked on a Mac OSX. Hence 265 Which based on consensus = new hardware. I have not...

    Delivery 6/10 P3D. I am stuck as well on 2019.7.107 for almost a week. Wifi at home and at work with great signal and no updates?

    We’re are you located in Florida? I had delivery on 6/8 automated. Make sure you call them. They are closed on 6/8. Informed when I called today.

    Performance Waiting Room

    Currently there are no Model 3’s on any trim in Florida. They can’t make them fast enough. I was tempted on going for a white model S LR with free supercharging but I sat on my hands. I really loved the driver’s car feel of the M3P vs the Model S.

If you want it ASAP you may need to have them search...
