    Georgia Power monthly net metering (RNR-monthly)

    I've ordered a 16 kW + 4 PW setup (from Tesla) and I'm rethinking the kW size because of the 10 kW limit on the Georgia Power monthly net metering plan (RNR-monthly). I'm looking for advice both for a qualifying 10 kW system as well as for a 16 kW system that will generate more than I will need...

    MY trailer hitch cover really hard to remove & put in

    Took delivery yesterday of a 2012 MY with a trailer hitch. When looking over the car, I couldn't figure out how to remove the cover so I asked the SA. He had no clue and told me to put a straight edge screwdriver in the side to pry it off. Well, that put 2 nice nicks in the cover. So, he called...

    Load Calc, Backfeed Calc and Panel Upgrade Options

    I am currently in the process of getting solar from a local company (did not work out with Tesla due to type of roof, and I wanted microinverters anyway). I had placed the order for 2 Powerwalls as well, but that will now be considered next year or later. I am in SCE territory, and wanted to...

    Hi all, Collected my M3 LR today! Happy days!! Love the car already. But... I’ve just come to charge tonight and noticed that the panelling next to the charger port/under the brake light isn’t flush and has come away from the car. I swear I didn’t notice this when I collected so it must have...

    Model 3 parts diagram anywhere? Splash shield specifically.

    My 2018 M3 RWD took a tough driveway entrance that scraped/gouged the plastic shield under the drivers side rocker panel. Actually opened up a 3 foot long slit in the shield! I'm looking for a replacement part, but can't even find what to call it? Can't find a parts diagram or anything. It...

    The interior panel with the armrest, button to get out, window controls is sticks out above where the trim line is on the outside. When you're standing outside the car, you can see the plastic backside from that interior panel. It's pretty ugly. Haven't seen anyone else complain about this, but...

    Best time to charge X at home--if you have Solar?

    So, I have a very robust solar system at my home in Northern California. I know, typically, most charge their EV overnight--much like a mobile phone. However, because my solar is generating the most energy between 1-4 pm, I'm wondering when the best time to charge my Tesla. I'm home throughout...
