Tesla Box/Powerwall walkthrough vlog
#1
Just recorded a VLOG on the component overview, power on, and app walkthrough for my system.

Any reason you went with Tesla?

I'm about to put a Sonnen system in - of course it will be part of CQC..

CT's are not the only option. You can get small single DIN power meters with wither a pulse output or MODBUS which you can use with CQC. I have a couple installed now using pulse outputs (1wh/pusle) which is just used with a counter. Fine for counting power usage. Current will tell you instantaneous power usage (in Amps).

If you are lucky enough you can get access to the pulse outputs on your main meter (as I have) and include that in your overall system.

What brand in inverter? Has it got a comms port or Ethernet only - any chance of using it with CQC?

I suppose I should show my system once its done - I've gone overboard as usual.

I live in NorCal. Getting a Tesla as a car, or solar city for panels, is almost a law....

seeing as IVB is all famous like, did you get Elon to come by and personally install it?
NOTE: As one wise professional something once stated, I am ignorant & childish, with a mindset comparable to 9/11 troofers and wackjob conspiracy theorists. so don't take anything I say as advice...

No, Larry lost a bet when he/Elon/I were having drinks, and we made him do it while we threw Pinot Grigio empties at him.
