Duke Energy Florida

Tesla has proposed a 10.4kW system for me.

Here is what Duke says(attached image):

Will my system fall under Tier 1 or Tier 2?

I'm in Tampa and just had this same question as I'm installing an 11kW system soon. I'm with TECO, not Duke, but they have the same Tier setup.

The way it actually works is that you multiply your system size by 0.85 because of the losses in the DC->AC inverter. Therefore, the actual max for Tier 1 is ~11.7 kw (approx the 12 kW that Tesla told you) because 11.7 * 0.85 = 10 kW.
How long has process been for you? Wondering how long it will take to get install scheduled.

Haven’t scheduled that yet. SIgned the deal with Tesla, site survey about 3 days later. Design finished a week after that. Then signed the official loan docs and permit application / utility stuff. It’s been about a week, now, since I sent over the last of the paperwork. I assume we’re waiting for responses about permits/etc., but no install schedule yet.
