Just put my order in for a large solar system and 3 powerwalls in Maryland. Can’t wait!
Me too. I was a little disappointed in the quote changed several times - by a lot - bad estimates.
how long did it take to get a quote?
getting the same "large"/3PW installed next week. curious how much was your quote
I haven't got an official quote yet. I just put the order in yesterday.
ah, so $100 deposit, understood.
Took about a week for them to send a proposal with roof layout, etc. Then a week later home inspection.
The quote took a month. First quote was $24K, second was $29K, third was $34K - half of my install is special issues. I wanted it installed in the worst place, my panel needs to be upgraded. There is no ROI ever for my project - just the satisfaction of not needing PG&E.
How much power are you guys using a day and which size system did you get? I'm curious if I'll be able to be completely "offgrid" or rather all my power come from solar/powerwalls.
in the summer with pool pump and dual zone AC units house take about 50kW a day! In the winter about 25kW. That's w/o charging the MS, which is another 15kW. So most likely I will still reply on the power company.
And while reducing my power bill is nice, my main goal was to provide backup power to the house during blackouts.
getting 12.3kW system with 3 powerwalls
This is a valid ROI in my book...
I'm averaging around 1300-1600 KWh a month in usage so roughly 43-53 KWh a day.
I am anywhere from 40-80 kWh a day.
Best I can determine, I'm at 30 kWh/day, charging a 100 mi Tesla Model 3 at 1 a.m., daily. I'm willing to part with $20K for panels and Powerwall to disengage from PG&E.
I think you're wrong as it will never give you a return on dollars spent which is a waste of your hard earned money.
So just install a power wall or 2 and don't use air-condition in the summer just open windows and doors.
Since I believe in explaining if I click disagree....
What I am disagreeing with, is someone OUT OF THE COUNTRY, saying "just open your windows during the summer" without any real clue of what the weather where that poster is..... unless you have also lived where that poster lives?
Should I also bike to work, so I don't have to charge my car?
I do on my e bike so why don't you being a responsible Tesla owner.
do you have any idea what "nj" means in his location?
Are you talking about kWh?
