Very recently got my 5.85Kw PV system + Powerwall2 activated in San Francisco, CA, so wanted to share my experience and ask a few questions. The entire system was designed/installed by Tesla. I think I've initially engaged them probably in Aug 2017, signed contract in Nov. System was installed on 01/09/18 - 01/10/18, and just activated on 05/01/18. Tesla had to come back a few times to make corrections after the initial inspection, follow up inspections took time, PG&E took their sweet time... But finally, have everything on and functioning almost to my satisfaction. Initially, Powerwall was not taking a charge from PV, so it took a call to Tesla to get that sorted out. At this time I have one issue that I'm waiting to hear on from Tesla, so was hoping someone has had similar experience and can share any info: - By the initial design, a few of my circuits were left in the main panel and are supposed to be powered only by the grid. High output kitchen appliances (2) and a 30Amp circuit that I use to charge my Model S - The rest of the circuits are "powered by" backup load center, per my understanding and are backed up by powerwall in the event of an outage - Powerwall is configured for "self-powered" mode - What is happening now though is that those high output circuits in the main panel are still drawing power from powerwall. For example, when scheduled car charging kicks in at 11PM, it draws 5kw from powerwall and 1 from the grid. Obviously, this is not my desired setup, as car charging depletes reserves of the powerwall rather quickly, leaving the house to draw power from the grid, until powerewall is recharged from PV system I wonder if anyone has any insight on this issue.
