My production has been: (Starting with Wednesday the 25th) 73.3, 72.3, 73.3, 69.3, 71.7, 60.6, 71.1, 34.1. (That 34.1 was yesterday and I had almost no production yesterday afternoon due to a very heavy rainstorm)
I really wish I knew when I was going to get my PTO. I’m still waiting for the city’s inspection and kind of caught in the middle. Tesla says they have left messages for the city and they are waiting for the city to reply and I talked to the city at one point and they said that they haven’t heard from Tesla and Tesla needs to request the inspection. Hopefully they will get together soon.
My 15.12 kw w/ 4 powerwalls was supposed to be installed on 1 July. They showed up early, unloaded two trucks and we discussed placements etc during the unloading. Thought that day would be great.... Within the hour the show stopper occurred: Tiles on the roof were granulating (is that a word??) i.e. when walked on, the grains were coming off the tiles (think of walking on a bed of miniature BBs on a 30 degree slope!).
Long story short, they could not proceed due to safety concerns. Unfortunately they had already started tearing out shrubs were most of the equipment was going (PWs, Inverters etc).
So now no Solar/power walls... and a $40k est to replace the roof (about a 5,400 sq ft roof). Since it appears I need a new roof, decided to go with solar glass (22.5 kw system). My little project went from $57k to $134k... my original intent was: got a new Model Y, I should charge it with solar juice!!!!
Seemed like a good idea at the time...

ugh! Concrete tiles? Tesla said that there were some brands that held up better than others and didn’t anticipate an issue with ours (but not installed yet).
No, I think these are regular tiles, but they are about 18 years+ old. Bought the house in April, but the AC was new, not the roof (I had thought the roof was new and the AC was old) .
Thought I was ok because the pre-home purchase inspection said the roof was fine.
I'll try and start new thread with more of my shenanigans...
We hired a home inspector when we bought our new developer home and all we can say was not impressed. He missed a number of things we realized afterwards including a few miss wired outlets. Look forward to your thread.
I remember spamming the refresh button that on the hope it might make things progress somehow. Unfortunately, MoCo doesn't seem to indicate progress (like reviews starting) in the system - just one day, a bunch of reviews complete.Congrats! I just spotted my permits being applied for in my County's online portal. I'm praying for a PTO by 12/31/2020!
Isn't the tax credit based on the date of the install complete payment?
I'm not entirely sure, but some sources I've read said it's based on PTO:
Frequently Asked Questions about the Federal Solar Tax Credit in 2020.
"If your solar panel installation is fully interconnected and you receive permission to operate (PTO) before January 1st, 2021, you are entitled to a tax credit of up to 26% of your cost to install solar. If your system gets PTO in 2021, you’ll earn a 22% tax credit instead."
