I'm afraid my 4-9 TOU will look really high.  Do you try to not run electricity during that time?

I'm on TOU PRIME but the hours are the same. If you are a heavy user of electricity from 9pm-8am then you definitely want to be on Prime because of winter hours. I only charge my cars at 9pm or later but otherwise my regular electricity usage is non-discretionary.

Plus there will be days that you will build up a sizable surplus from being away from home. Like Sunday I wasn't home for most of the day and this was my usage

4-9 TOU is just during week days right? At least it is with PG&E.

I was also worried about peak hours being between 4PM and 9PM but we compensate our usage during that time with a high production during the rest of the day.

Our true up looks good so far. Probably too good, have to look into an EV soon.

No 4-9pm is peak for weekday and weekend. It's just the cost of peak on the weekend is lower than weekday.

I'm going to be giving Tesla a call to get a quote since I can't see it being that much more than just re-felting the roof.

There's a lot of companies that do the solar tile.  Not just Tesla.
I found that Tesla is about 15% more expensive then your local solar company....while sunrun is 30% more. 


Those people who stand around costco and homedepot all day gots to get paid!

Oops:Tesla is getting sued by Walmart who wants them to remove 240 solar systems after fires.

So my solar installation is finally complete.  A summary:

I read this thread on May 5.
I had sunrun come estimate my house.
I created an energysage account afterwards.
I told sunrun to fuck off.
I signed with a solar company on 05.30.2019
It was installed on 08.07.2019
Edison gave me PTO (permission to operate) on 08.21.2019.

So what now?

energysage.com had some promotions that I just applied.
1. $100 amazon gift card
2. $250 Panasonic rebate for using their panels

We'll see if I actually get any of this money.

It’s really bad, really bad. Read the reports done by walmart and tesla regarding the issue.

So I spent $18,000 on this array after tax incentives
It should be paid off in 2026.

What if I had put $18,000 into AMZN instead of this solar array. How much will it be by 2026?
Today Amazon is $1,813/share (10 shares)

We'll have to revisit this post in 7 years.



I use TI as my personal time capsule.

Here is the reddit post regarding solar city tesla installations.
Apparantly if you have solar city panels on your roof, you may have a bad connector and it may catch on fire.

I think Tesla/SC know which install are using these connectors, I've heard of a few people in my neighborhood getting their solar array shut down and waiting for replacement.
