I don't think Tesla will do this. You would probably need to hire a contractor to do this. The vents can be a myriad of different things (sewer, radon, attic vent, exhaust fan vent, etc.).

Near Houston, Texas. Most of the panels are South-facing and a few on the west side. I went full-research mode and had a Aurora model (Thanks, Fiverr) . Turns out the south-east panels are a bit less than optimal than the full-on south. Was hoping to move some panels from West side to the South side. But looks like there are some vents, etc. Please post any ideas
When did you get your technical plans? I received my Customer Layout plan, for which I requested a change but have not received the updated layout or a technical plan.My technical plans included P400 power optimizers for each panel. These were not included in the "Customer Layout".
Here is my layout that they provided in March 2020 (14.85kw system). I just went and put in my address and average bill and the price for the same system is $7k cheaper. Yet when I log in my Tesla account, the original price is still showing.
Has Solar Roof gone done in price?
Also, they now are aggressive in adding PowerWalls to their "estimate of what you need." View attachment 567249
I most definitely will. With Covid, I just sort of put it on the back burner. I need a new roof, but not leaking or anything and was not rushing to buy a premium roof at this point.If there has been a price reduction, you should be entitled to the reduced price. I would reach out to your representative to share what you found.
Definitely do it it soon. Some portion of that roof + Powerwalls is eligible for the 26% fed tax credit this year. Which goes to 22% in 2021, 10% in 2022(?).I most definitely will.

I think it's actually 22% in 2021, and then in 2022 the 10% is only for commercial solar installations. After 22% in 2021 residential solar will have no tax credit.
I would agree that adding more PWs makes sense with this system, and it might even be less than $6.5k depending on whether Tesla is still adding increasing discounts for adding more PWs with solar roof (I've heard different things about that.) In any case, that is a good justification to have Tesla re-price everything, and they seem to be very willing to provide updated, lower pricing, when it is available.Definitely do it it soon. Some portion of that roof + Powerwalls is eligible for the 26% fed tax credit this year. Which goes to 22% in 2021, 10% in 2022(?).
But to get the credit you must be "installed" in the calendar year. Your interpretation on what "installed" means.
PS. I would add at least one additional powerwall. 2 more would be even better given the size of your system. Each powerwall add stroage, but more importanly adds 5 Kw of power you can draw at any one time. So if you want to cover A/C in addition to lights you want at least two. The cost for an additional PWs is about $6,500 per PW. And a lot of the costs of installing PWs is built into the costs of installing the first one.
Thanks! Corrected 22 in 2021. I have not heard it was 0% for us regular people in 2022. I guess they want us to burn more coal.
I definitely need to decide on 3rd PW soon.
