    Tesla Virtual Power Plant in CA

    It is my first as well, but it seemed to work even with perhaps the wrong birthdate too.

    Tesla Virtual Power Plant in CA

    Can you see the bank info? Is it correct? Have you submitted that to Tesla before? Can you delete and re-enter? Did it ask for birth date? Two numbers, account number and routing number, all numbers including 0 at front. Doubt Tesla will claim it back.

    How is it failing, at what point?

    I guess Tesla knows who gets the priority service. :D :D :D

    Tesla Virtual Power Plant in CA

    I am showing a pending deposit last night in my checking account the same amount Tesla has. So, from email to actual deposit is rather quick.

    Tesla Virtual Power Plant in CA

    That didn't dawn on me. I would have thought that if it was in the future when pressing enter, it would give you the reason why it is wrong. My payout almost what I was able to calculate after each grid dump. About $5 less than my estimate.

    Tesla Virtual Power Plant in CA

    Just checked. Same here. May have put wrong birthday? Don't know how to check. Worked the first time but you have to set birth year first not last to enter.

    Powerwall Companion - updated Windows app

    Yes, they do 15 minutes integration. what a difference yet same totals.

    Marin Clean Energy Solar Storage Credit

    Would 20% be enough to self-power from 9PM to next day's charging capability? If drawing from grid overnight will that cost less than that $20/mo?

    Marin Clean Energy Solar Storage Credit

    That's what it looks like. I as going to suggest to see how much you'd send to the grid for a month and then what that $20 pays per kWh.

    Interesting how Enphase graph compares with Powerwall companion at the same time of print screen of solar, yet the total is only 0.3% difference.

    Like Enphase as it has custom dates, but you'd have to do that song and dance each month.

    2 powerwall 3s were 100% and suddenly dropped to 83% with only 0.8 kWh discharged

    It is 15 min on companion but 5 min interval on Tesla app you show in post 1. Lot of drop for 15 min that doesn't show up on consumption. Most likely a software issue otherwise, in my opinion, it would show up in consumption with a nice pike up.

    Neither did I get one, but it was less than $600. That may be the trigger.

    TurboTax Delays in Filing for Home Solar Rebate

    The answer is YES. :D

    Powerwall Companion - updated Windows app

    Thanks. No wonder I could not figure out what you are seeing. I didn't have that energy source box checked so I didn't see that bar on the left side bottom. Then I changed resolution. Yep same thing with mine. Changed back to 1920x1080, problem goes away.

    Powerwall Companion - updated Windows app

    Would you mind posting a screenshot? I played with it, changed to your resolution, moved the height and width and full screen. Seems to work for me even with the bar at the bottom but not really sure what is cut off for you.

    Yes, this year may be different. Wait and see is all we can do for now.

    Yes, a physical check here as well.

    2 powerwall 3s were 100% and suddenly dropped to 83% with only 0.8 kWh discharged

    That is a lot of correction, so I doubt that possibility. Hopefully more knowledgeable folks for help you out.

    2 powerwall 3s were 100% and suddenly dropped to 83% with only 0.8 kWh discharged

    Any corroborating usage in house or grid in that 15 minute gap, 3-5min slots?
  22. charlesj

    It's shocking Tesla does not hand over direct control of their PW in the app.

    Yes, but there are very reliable auto landing system on carriers, down to 0/0 weather conditions. ;) Not so good on cars. :D

    Tesla Virtual Power Plant in CA

    I just checked my bank book for 2023. Yes, check came towards the end of Feb as I see a deposit from Tesla on the 22. So, any time now.

    Powerwall Companion - updated Windows app

    Thanks. Yep. A good part of California has severe weather conditions and power is out here in this area now for 8 hours. Good thing sun was out enough to have 98% battery after sunset. Even Internet went down for 3 hours, just got Internet back up while power is still down. Lots of trees down...

    Super, thanks. Interesting such a mundane even has such an impact and only one way, not October or November here when we jump back. ps. just noticed my battery charge level wheel on home page is orange now about 98% charge level. Has been that green color as you show in avatar. Is this new?

    I It is just curious that it seems to affect March. Don't have 2020 as PW was installed after March that year. Will see, if I remember to check this April if it is still affecting March.

    Does this show in self-powered mode selection or only in time based?

    Powerwall Companion - updated Windows app

    Not sure if this has been addressed before, lots of messages, but I was curious about my monthly net grid usage and discovered that March 2023, 2022, 2021 are blank, no grid usage unlike the other months of a year. Tesla app has data for those March months, so it is not Tesla issue, I don't think.

    What's a big deal is in the tesla app that roof color doesn't change colors as the solar intensifies during the day generation. Now that would be real cool. ;) :D :D :D

    Powerwall Companion - updated Windows app

    Oh, those stationary arrows not the moving mouse arrow. :eek: Too complex :D Come to think of that, it is part of the chart design so changing the computer cursor/mouse arrow/color would not have an effect on the app design. I wasn't sure which you were asking about. By bad.

    Powerwall Companion - updated Windows app

    Must have been a short glitch as I didn't have this today.

    Netzero App

    How do you do this? Thanks. Would this also work on clearing cache for a single website?
  36. charlesj

    Powerwall Companion - updated Windows app

    If you go into your computer settings(gear) and in the search box search "cursor" you can make the arrow larger and change color that may be better.

    Cheaper to burn oil than run electric heat pump -)

    You are lucky. I am looking at my PG&E bill, period ended Jan 17. $2.25438/Therm to end of December and $2.43888/therm to the 17th. On top of that, the gas procurement cost per therm went down from $0.90733 to $0.75508 for those two halves of billing cycle. :eek:

    Yep, all depends on home usage and solar generation.

    I am sure those amps have great filters inside it as other such components do. ;)

    Tesla Solar in Houston & Surrounding Area’s

    Cannot grab it now, weather not cooperating for a good while. But I have trees not far that starts shading about midafternoon, maybe 3 PM, especially when the sun arc is so low in the winter. Gets a bit better later but still shades, even on the 2nd story roof. Have a hill with trees right by me...

    @tomho, just came to me to ask when I saw your 11% wheel: can your avatar be a real time charge indicator?

    PV not turning on during outage, PW <90%

    Do you have a phone app and away from the gateway what is it showing. Picture looks like logged into Gateway. How much max power can the PV produce? 63Hz is enough to keep panels off and it is curious how much house is using that is not reflected coming from PW..

    I did not mean to remove the whole tab, just Dremel it into a rectangle shape from present curved inner side of tab?

    May want to consider wrapping blankets on exposed water pipes to house unless, of course it is all underground, nothing exposed. Same with external faucets.

    How Do I Responsibly Report a Powerwall 2 Hardware Safety Defect?

    Could they not just use a Dremel like small grinding pin and do it in place?
