    I almost pulled the trigger on a single Tesla Powerwall.... so it could cover small outages and still run solar during those times. They recommend two of them.... but one should last an entire day.
    The reason is that it is AC coupled so the battery needs to be able to take the full charge from your array, larger array means more batteries.

      It's stated right there in the screenshot, "estimated at 30 kWh per day", so for you about 5-days.

      But don't you think you would have some solar generation during that time to recharge them?
      The problem is that the advertisement does not say clearly is that you need an XX kw pv system working to recharge that battery system so you can get 30kWh per day.

      What I want is the ad to say what each powerwall is rated in daily kWh and what size pv system you need to get them back to 100%.

      The advertisement is misleading to anyone that does not understand a solar/battery system.

        It actually asks what size system you have, how much you consume a day.... it's a calculator that estimate was for a 13kw solar system.

          Of course as [USER="53456"]flowing[/USER] said it is a calculator not an ad. He said he was consisering it for short power outages. .

          • So I received a phone call from Green Power on Sunday (Yes, Sunday) in regard to installation of my "Critter Guards" now two weeks after my PTO.

            The fact that GPE is even making these calls and scheduling on a Sunday is a great reassurance and testament to their customer service and responsiveness IMO.

            So yeah, they (Solar Pest Solutions) showed up yesterday for the install and left exactly 1-hour later. Looks very clean and neat to me.

            • I got mine installed yesterday, too. I'd called them on Saturday since the GPE rep who did our final walk through had said to follow up if I hadn't heard anything. They came bright and early and were gone before I even realized.

                People see what they want to see and read stuff into ads. While it may be called a calculator, it's still an oversimplification, a come on and a sales pitch that can lead more than few to poor choices due to their ignorance. If that's not deception then, IMO only, it's B.S. that uses people's ignorance against them to sell them less than an optimum solution to their (perceived) needs.

                  That is pretty much how I feel on the subject.

                  • Yep, that would be called marketing. Sometimes it is even disguised as public relations. I expect we are influenced by it even when we least suspect.
                    We wouldn't have this Forum without the Solar Panel calculator, lead generator in disguise.In finance I always reminded myself to test my assumptions when preparing projections or recomendations. One of the most important assumption to test is whether the data source is somehow skewed by marketing.
