Owner's Issues / Re: Tesla Solar Rental - No removal cost in Sept

Also with a TOU plan, it's always better to charge during non-peak hours.  With net metering all that matters is when you are using the electricity.  The generation is separate and doesn't matter if you use it at the same time or if you send it back to the grid.

That's what I thought.

If you generate X Kw per day, you should be able to use close to X Kw at night right? Or else you would really need the Tesla Powerwall.

18% admission to UCLA - Yikes..
It would probably be a lot cheaper to have your kids attend Community College for 2 years and transfer into UCLA.

Some of the most important learning you do is outside the classroom, not inside one.  Living on your own, away from your parents and support system, for extended periods of time in invaluable.  Going to a commuter school can't replicate that experience.

Looks like I can also plug in an EV directly into the Solar Edge single phase inverter.  Saves me the cost of getting an EV plug installed.

This is a bonus. So would this pull from the grid at night?

I looked into this and while it sounds attractive, for me it was impractical. My inverter is installed outside my house whereas I want to park my car inside the garage. I don't want to run a charging cable all the way around. Plus the only benefit of it is if you can charge during the daytime which most people work.

Any particular reason why you installed the inverter outside your house vs. inside?

I back doored all my IRA accounts into ROTH IRA

Smart man. I like the way you roll.  8)

The current tax rates under Trump make this an optimal time to convert assets to a ROTH.

My instincts tell me that momopi is probably wealthier than most of you UCLA grads on TI.

When I was graduating HS we had no budget for 4 year university, because we opted to use our savings to buy a house and I went to Jr. College (eventually transferring to CSUF).  But if my parents had a budget of $400K for me, UCLA wouldn't be anywhere near my list.  You'd probably find me attending college in France or Japan.

Having attended both Cerritos JC and Fullerton JC, I can tell you that community college has fairly high dropout rate and low graduation rate.  But if you're transferring, 4 year universities like the fact that JC already filtered out the flakes.

Any of you guys still holding AGNC? The yield is currently at 12.17%.

AGNC is a long term investment that pays a monthly dividend. You win in the long run by reinvesting the dividends and multiplying your shares. I believe that the shares are attractively priced at this time.


I have AGNC and NLY in my IRA account.

When you have $400,000 to blow on bribing college admissions, your family already has a house in France and Japan.
So UCLA is exotic.
