If the utility said "turn it on" - go outside and turn it on. I mean, some people don't even wait for "PTO" - especially since often the entire installation is inspected already. In my case "PTO" means you get the upgraded meter which keeps track of the credits for sending power back, but the system "worked" immediately after it was installed and certainly "worked" after it was inspected.
Its not Tesla who decides whether it can be turned on, its the utility.
That is if, and only if, your utility said you have PTO and you believe whoever said that.
If "..... verified they sent Tesla PTO" means they sent Tesla some form to fill out, then maybe you don't have PTO.
In my case I was waiting for the new meter to be official. The day LADWP installed it I turned it on. I actually got the text from Tesla the next day but its not as if I was going to wait for that!
Sheesh, its like an episode of "Get Smart."
Problem is - Tesla has to activate the solar system. I turned it on, and it does nothing.
Sheesh, it's like an episode of "Get Smart"
