    Powerwall stuck to Standby pre-PTO? Remotely done?

    Curious thoughts on what’s happening here. Had a new system (enohase Solar, Tesla Powerwall) just installed. Going thru inspection steps but in the meantime, the installer left the system on (presumably testing). Was nice and we set it for self-powered mode to charge in the day and then offset...

    Wrong Grid Reading by Powerwall

    I recently got a PW installed by a certified Tesla installer (not Tesla themselves)(see end of post for setup). It was the installer's first job and I had to self diagnose quite a bit.

    Strange Powerwall App behavior

    Strange thing happening in the App. Power being drawn from batteries and stored in the batteries shows up in the graphs, but not in the numerical displays at the bottom of the screen. It's been going on a couple of days. Has this happened to anyone else, and if so, how did you resolve it...

    Check PW Capacity

    The Tesla Powerwall warranty says that at the end of 10 years, the PW is guaranteed to hold at least 70% of its original charge. Can the homeowner measured this? Or is this something Tesla does remotely?
