    Finally making some progress. Updates at the very bottom.
    --------------

    Here's the original list with the most recent update is at the bottom.

    November 14, 2016 - Placed Deposit for Quantity 1 Powerwall 2
    Early April, 2016 - Received a call to scheduled my on-site picture and measurement session
    April 27, 2017 - Tesla technician came onsite to take pictures of all my panels, meters, and entire garage with full measurements.
    May 8, 2017 - Using Docusign, I received my quote for my system, including diagrams on where they have to install the Powerwall based on code, along with a much of legal stuff.
    May 25, 2017 - I signed all the Docusigns after going back and forth asking clarification on a few of the items.
    May 30, 2017 - I received another Docusign from the SGIP Incentive team asking me to provide details so they can complete my SGIP application on my behalf. Completed their questionnaire, including 4 or 5 PG&E bills and something else I can't remember right now
    June 6, 2017 - Received email from PG&E/SGIP stating that "You've received a conditional rebate confirmation for Step 2 of the SGIP rebate program for your Powerwall".
    July 29, 2017 - Received a call from Tesla stating that my area (I'm guessing my Zip Code) now has Interconnect Licenses from PG&E so we can pick an install date. I picked the 1st date in the system which was Sept 13, 2017 with a walk-through inspection with the master electrician on Sept 11, 2017.
    Sept 11, 2017 - Master Electrician came onsite to talk about the install, review the location of the install, review all of the panels, and took notes. This took about 2 hours in total
    Sept 13, 2017 - Two electrician came on site and start the install. Work stared around 9am and completed around 4pm. Installation could not be completed because the Powerwall/Gateway could not be provisioned. My Wireless Wifi unit had an additional security service turned on which prevent communication to the NOC.
    Sept 14, 2017 - Another electrician came onsite to complete the installation as soon as I discovered the security service was blocking connections to the Tesla NOC and I had it turned off. Everything was provisioned correctly.
    Sept 15, 2017 - I received one more Docusign from Tesla which contains the PG&E Interconnect Licenses that I need to review, sign and send back which I did.
    Sept 22, 2017 - Alameda county inspection was scheduled for the early afternoon. Tesla electricians came back onsite because they forgot they needed to put a Nerio monitoring device around my 60amp breaker for my Tesla Wall Connector so when in use it's energy usage would appear under the HOME category in the Tesla App. Inspection by Alameda County completed without issue around noon.
    Oct 10, 2017 - I received an email from PG&E with the following "Thank you for submitting an Interconnection Request Non-Export License...".
    Oct 26, 2017 - I received an email from the SGIP Program titled "SGIP Confirmed Reservation Letter". Looks like my money is now received for a total of 12 months from today, and they want the final documents to be uploaded (i.e. Incentive Claim Documents). Tesla/SolarCity will be doing that, and once SGIP receives those documents, the email indicates "Upon receipt of the Incentive Claim documents, a third-party entity will conduct an inspection of the SGIP installation to verify that the project is operational, interconnected and conforms to the eligibility criteria of the program. Payment of the incentive will be made after these items have been completed and verified."
    November 9, 2017 - Received an email from PG&E SGIP. "This Non-Export Solar Battery Storage interconnection application for the above customer has been assigned to me on 11/08/2017. I will be assisting you in the interconnection process. This is only an acknowledgment and I shall be sending you a Follow Up email once I have reviewed the files to make sure we have what we need to commence the Initial Review for this Non-Export project. Your application needs to be reviewed by our planning engineer...".
    December 11, 2017
    - I received another email from PG&E SGIP. They have informed me that "Field Metering Services team is now coordinating with SolarCity/Tesla for the final inspection.".
    December 11, 2017 - In a second email I received from PG&E SGIP, they have sent me copies of my original "PTO Letter and executed Interconnection Agreement for this Non-Export Tesla AES generator" after they have accepted and signed it, which is why they can now schedule the onsite final inspection.
    December 14, 2017 - I actually received a hand signed copy of my PG&E Generating Facility Interconnection Agreement for Non-Export Generating Facilities letter. It was hand signed by the "Supervisor. Electric Grid Interconnection". It also has stapled to it the full electrical diagram of my setup and how each piece is connected.
    Jan 1, 2018 - I sent an email to my "PG&E Interconnect Manager" assigned to my SGIP submission. She informed me that her piece has been complete which is issuing me the interconnect license for my Powerwall. She advised that I should contact the PG&E SGIP Incentive Claim team to get status on my rebate check.
    Jan 1, 2018 - I sent the PG&E SGIP Incentive Claim team an email asking for status.
    Jan 2, 2018 - I received an email back from them stating that to get the SGIP rebate check, you need to complete the two step SGIP process. The first step is the RRF Reservation request form, which has been completed by Tesla/Solar City. Now that I have received my PTO Permission to Operate Interconnection Licenses, now Tesla/Solar City needs to apply for the ICF Incentive Claim Form which is the second and final step.
    Jan 2, 2018 - I sent an email to my Tesla/Solar City assigned Sales Support Specialists asking them what is the next step in submitting the ICF Incentive Claim Form.
    Jan 2, 2018 - I received an email from my Sales Support Specialists, and they advised me that the form is being prepared, and by weeks end I'll get a Docusign email asking me to sign it. Once signed, it will be submitted to PG&E/SGIP team and within 4 to 8 weeks will be processed by PG&E/SGIP team. I can follow up with PG&E/SGIP Incentive Team in about 2 weeks to get status of my rebate.
    Jan 11, 2018 - Received an email from Tesla via Docusign that my ICF is ready for signature. Went into Docusign signed it, and sent it back to Tesla. Now I wait for one of three things. (1) Lottery selections for onsite inspection, (2) Validation of my ICF claim, (3) Receive my SGIP incentive check. 12 weeks remaining if not sooner.

    ------
    May 16, 2018 - Received confirmation from Tesla Energy that my ICF claim form was finally submitted to PG&E. I understood that many claim forms had to be delayed pending the ToU/Time-Based Control feature rollout, so since I got it activated on Wednesday, my claim form was submitted. I've sent an email to PG&E/SGIP contact, to see if they can confirm if they did receive it since it was sent electronically. Now, I'm hope I don't get selected to the PG&E/SGIP inspection. No inspection, means I can get the check in a few weeks. With inspection, I'll get my check a few weeks after the inspection report has been reviewed.

    This is possibly the longest process to get a rebate check that I've ever been involved in.

    ---------------------

    Aug 8, 2018 - I got randomly selected for the onsite inspection by PG&E/SGIP, so today is my inspection. Prior to the actual inspection, Tesla had to provide them with a lot of data. The inspection will take about 20 minutes, and I'm hoping it passes. Once it does, let's hope that I get the check within 30 days. Note: This inspection is not the county or city inspection, but the actual PG&E inspection as the final step to confirm compliance with the SGIP T&C before they cut the check.

    This is possibly the longest process to get a rebate check that I've ever been involved in.

    I have a new construction garage and am trying to find wire diagrams for pre-wire for PW2. It will be 6 to 9 months until I receive the PW and want to get the wires in the wall before sheet rock. Very little direction from Tesla Energy.

    If you know of an installer in N California, that would help as well.

    Not sure whose update you are looking for, but my Powerwall reservation is now at the 1 year point, with no Tesla initiated communication about it at all.

    The only time I've heard anything is if I call, or if my installer sends an email, and at this point both of us have essentially given up.

    All we get is a new excuse for not having any product available. At least they've had the common sense to pull the sales people out of Home Depot.

    They keep calling me every few months about my powerwall reservation and I tell them that maybe next year the cash for it will be there... this is for install in california. Maybe I should cancel and tell them to give it to you?

    Tampa/St Petersburg/Sarasota Florida re about 100 miles (160km) north. They are dealing with that Florida market first, (and theoretically possibly Puerto Rico)

    Coming up on 18 months, news that PW is now pushed into next year, and a clarification from Tesla that "place in line" only matters when they choose to service your geographic area so there really isn't any timeframe I can hang a hat on. I decided to cancel and see if I can find something else and if not, then I guess there's PW3. Maybe they'll be making more and supplying my area by then. Sigh...

    Hello Robert,

    I hope you are doing well. Due to current product limitations we have placed all Powerwall projects on hold pending a formal installation timeline. Once we have a timeline we will begin moving forward with scheduling your site survey and generating your contract.

    In the past we have provided soft timelines and have had trouble keeping to those timelines. In the best interest of our customers we are now holding off on providing timelines that we are unable to honor. We appreciate your patience as we work to meet the growing demand of this product. I will reach out again within 6 months once we are ready to start your project. Feel free to reach out in the meantime if you have any questions.

    Best Regards,

    So I have 6 months to get financing, get roof ready (Hurricane Irma made me get a new one)
    keep nudging them, etc
    I do see a lot of the batteries being diverted to vehicles and utility scale projects first

    My SGIP saga finally come to an end, nearly 12 months to the date of the install. Final update at the bottom.

Note: This inspection is not the county or city inspection, but the actual PG&E inspection as the final step to confirm compliance with the SGIP T&C before they cut the check.
    Aug 31, 2018 - I finally got the email from PG&E/SGIP: "Great news! We are delighted to let you know that this SGIP project has been approved for an incentive payment". So now I wait the 30+ days to get the check, but it's finally over.

    Nearly 12 months to the date, it took to get my Stage 2 payment for my Quantity 2 Tesla Powerwall.

    This is possibly the longest process to get a rebate check that I've ever been involved in.

    Reserved my PW2 in March and then canceled in August since hurricane season was approaching and I didn't hear back from Tesla. After finding out that my electric company will have to dug and install a new gas line for a Generac, I placed another reservation with Tesla. Less than 48 hours later a phone call from Tesla stating that they are piloting a fast track program to get PW2 installed within 5 weeks! Now I'm waiting for permit approval from my town. The price of the PW2 didn't increase with the new reservation (maybe because I had a purchase agreement previously?) but the install price did jump. Tesla quoted 16K for two PW2.

    Makes sense that the increased the installation portion of the charge.

    For 3 PWs I had a team of 4 guys here for 4 days, and my total for installation (with hidden behind the wall conduit) and permitting was 2150. Tesla has probably gotten wise that they were losing money on the installation portion of the contracts.

    That is a very lengthy install. My 2 Powerwall system only took two guys one long day to install plus a couple hours here and there for inspections and provisioning. My install was not done by Tesla, but by a solar installer contracted by Swell Energy.

    Hidden conduit makes all the difference. 1 day for exposed conduit, 4 days for hidden. Not about to let these jokers run exterior conduit everywhere on a brand new house.

    So, did they have to tear up your walls to install the hidden conduit?

    Oh yeah. About 60 ft worth (the powerwalls were placed on the opposite side of a 3 car garage from the utility boxes).

    Good work, but SLOW. Tesla had to have spent 4k in labor alone on my project.
