While still on self powered mode, as soon as 3 pm hit, it started doing this. Now I have 3 pm set as the start of peak but ONLY in the time based mode. I suspect that self powered mode is being keyed off of the time settings in advanced mode. So I'll try this again tomorrow by going to self powered mode but make peak 24 hours.

your app may say self powered but it doesnt sound like your TEG is actually in self powered mode. There is no "switching off the grid during peak" in self powered mode in normal circumstances. I run in that mode exclusively and have for about a year.
i dont use time based controls at all, so am not that familiar with them other than reading here. I AM familiar with self powered though, and it does not "shut off at peak time at all, because there is no peak time in that mode.
Your TEG isnt changing modes, is what it looks like to me, even if the app says it is.
This sort of happened to me too back in Feb too. I already had 2 solar PTOs.As for PTO, my final inspection was complete on 10/23. Tesla had me sign the interconnection agreement form on 11/11. It was the wrong form and I told them so on the 11th. On the 12th, they submitted the incorrect form. On the 13th, PGE rejected it and sent Tesla and email asking them to resubmit. Tesla says they're still sorting out title 21 issues and they say it will be at least 6 more weeks before they submit the correct form. PG&E says it will take 4 to 6 weeks after (because it's a 3 PW system) before PTO is granted, so I'm looking at over 4 months from the date the county inspection passed to getting PTO *IF* everything goes according to what they say it will.
Your system is installed and you're going to have to wait 3 months for PTO? That seems bonkers
@holeydonut Alameda or CC? CC came out within 5 days for me from my city.
Mines been powered on before inspection, turned off for the inspection, then immediately back on once I passed. Now waiting for pto and been using it every day. I already paid Tesla as well with credit card. Just waiting for PTO. I'm not sure what PG&E need to do on their end.

Ya that's weird man. My gateway only has PV, and 2 breakers for the 2 PW. Rest is on another panel with a OCPD to the house circuits. All separate from the main disconnect which is on another panelGotcha sorry I misread what you said before lol. I hope you get PTO soon. Sunrun actually let me pre-pay before PTO so I had an “installed” system before the ITC goes to 22%.
Sunrun actually re-designed my system in a way that seems to be incorrect. Both vines and Whitney here indicated putting backup home loads on the gateway’s internal panel board wasn’t a good idea.
So they need to re-submit for a permit “as built”. I believe that’s why they told me it’ll be a while until I can get an inspection.

We have a Quad 40A installed in our main panel back in 2000 to supply the EV charger and A/C. But we can't use both at the same time because the breaker overheats. Perhaps the Sunrun design team has concerns along those lines.Sunrun's design team just didn't want to use the Quad 30A; but the installer says he does it that way all the time.
