All of these are on target.I think I'm getting the gist of all this so I hope these are my last noob questions.
When trying to compare the actual performance of my system to the expected performance of my system, neither the rated 11.3 kW nor expected 9.97 kW are useful numbers because those only represent instantaneous peak production numbers. And I now understand that's not very useful information plus it can be inaccurate due to lensing. Correct?
So the only way to really evaluate system performance is to compare actual production on any given day with whatever a solar production estimation tool predicts for that day. I can't just look at the app to know. Correct?
And until I have PTO, the only way to know how much I power my system can generate would be on a cloudless day, that doesn't get too hot and my production isn't idled by my batteries hitting 100%. I don't see that happening because the only time I don't hit 100% is on the hottest days when my AC is running like mad. So then after PTO I will know how exactly how much I am generating because there will be no idle time and then I can compare that with a solar power estimator. Correct?
The only thing to keep in mind is that the solar estimates include historical weather data, so a day might be historical sunny with a high production estimate while this year it might be cloudy with low production and the reverse will be true as well. Look at the macro trends and not the micro events and expect that everything will average out.
What did Tesla estimate for your annual production? This should have been on the original panel location plan they gave you.
