    message on my PG&E account site. Why would they estimate usage if power is out? STORM BILLING: During power outages, your usage will show as estimated. You will not be billed for the time your power was off.

    Also, if they are large NG Plants, its not that easy to turn them off and start them back up. Takes many hours. Peaker Plants can be turned off/on, but I'm not sure CA has many of those. I could be wrong

    SoCal & Central CA - Keep Your PW Full (Record Storm Possible Next Week)

    In my area, a tree supposedly took out 3 Power poles. I saw them replacing them but how does a tree hitting power lines pull down 3 poles? I lucked out and only lost power for 2 hours. The rest of my street has been without power for 3 days and ETA for back is Thursday

    No storm watch events this year...

    PGE just updated the date for restore. It is now 2/8 at 10pm. That's over 4 days. Glad I am just outside the outage. My neighbors starting 2 lots down all the way to the other end of the street are without power. I think only 1 has a generator

    we lucked out. Lost power for 2 hours, but rest of my street is still down. I'm still getting the PG&E alerts and they are saying estimated time to get it back is 2pm tomorrow. That would be a 48 hour outage. When power was out for me, the PWs estimated I had 24 hour supply which woulld have...

    activated yesterday due to high wnd warning. Was still on this morning and then we had an outage. PWs came on and sun came out for a while. Solar is toggling off/on as PWs drop below 97% and then recharge

    SoCal & Central CA - Keep Your PW Full (Record Storm Possible Next Week)

    We are having very high winds which triggered the SW. Looks like a tree hit some power lines on nearby street. Outage is impacting less than 100 people or so PG&E says

    ok, I was skeptical, but just did a high level calc using my own production over the last year. I have my monthly production and got my monthly excess from my B&W bill. From this I can calc my monthly solar usage. Using TOU-D rates (did not realize Off Peak is now $.45/kWh and $.46/kWh in the...

    I'm talking about pay back with NEM3. I cannot see how adding batteries will decrease the payback. I get it that batteries help, but they are expensive. I'm on NEM2 and my solar paidback in 5 years. I added batteries (4 years ago), but I won't see a payback on those for a long time...

    what? Faster payoff with batteries? Would like to see that math. Batteries double the price. A 6 to 8 year pay off is a pipe dream And as their use of power from the grid declines and they get paid for excess power, customers generally expect to have their new solar system paid off in six...

    Do you have enough solar to go off grid in winter?

    I don't think EVs to power house are the answer. First of all, they recommend only charging battery to 80% unless you need the range. And, in my case, I wait until it is down to 40% or 50% to recharge it. So for unexpcted outages, the EV battery is likely well below capacity. I guess you...

    The app is very slow when moving between screens. When I tap "Energy" to get to the graphs, it takes about a minute to load the graphs and then similar time to return to main screen. Not sure this is relevant, but it started happening after Storm Watch ended

    Claim that EVs are subsidized by $50K per car

    Its largely about implicit subsidies and it also assumes every EV gets the full tax credit despite the restrictions including income. There are implicit subsidies to ICE that are ignored
