    Tesla Energy -- Worst experience

    Tesla customer service is non-existent. Terrible experience from the start. I should of listen to my gut and NOT used them. I ordered the panels July 2020. They installed the equipment in December 2020. So may excuses and delays that it is just ridiculous. The first rep they assigned me never...

    I live in San Diego. We have had PV Solar on our roof for about two years, generating 140-150% of our use every year, without EVs - we originally sized the system with the idea of getting EVs later. Now, we have just taken delivery of two Tesla Model 3s :). I have calculated that, based on our...

    On Solar Panels and Solar Inverters... Our first repair...

    What is a Solar Inverter? It's a device that converts the DC power generated by solar panels into AC power that one can use in most homes. When we first shopped around for solar, we had many choices and we picked our provider based on cost, and it turned out to be a pretty good technical...

For energy production, it depends on where you are putting the solar panels, angle, azimuth, tilt, shading, and regional weather... There are variables, but with a few tools, you can figure it...
