  • Is there any advantage to panels all together on one side of house vs splitting up with some on back of house? June 22, 2021
    Excluding cost differences and assuming equal power generation, does the layout of panels make any difference? Or wouldn’t it basically just be an aesthetic thing at that point? I have a mostly East/West oriented roof, but slightly more sun on front of the house. I can configure the panels so that they’re all on the […]
  • Does your monitoring system alert you when production falters? June 22, 2021
    My Sunpower system doesn’t. Neither of the apps notify me, and according to my service rep, their service dept doesn’t receive notifications when there’s an issue, either, and they don’t do anything unless a customer makes a report. Even though they can manually do a remote check and find out what’s going on. So, the […]
  • Do you think any of these budget solar generators/brands are worth looking at more closely or avoiding altogether? June 22, 2021
    I've never bought any of these, but wondering if any stand out to you guys either way as bad or good, even if just the brand to look closer at or avoid--or if one looks like a particularly good deal. Want something for emergency use for my Mom to maybe keep a light on, phone […]
  • [NY] Powerwall + Net metering question June 22, 2021

This means that after dark, my house will draw from the batteries until they reach a certain reserve, and then switch to grid power. There's a thunderstorm going right now and I'm nervous because the AC […]
  • Just got solar installed and super pumped, need some kind of like closure or something June 22, 2021
    11.25kwh system w/ a 15kwh Generac battery, 19 panels, it was stupid easy to get done and it's freaking awesome. It's just such a huge accomplishment for us and I can't like look at it or process it or somehow get a good sense of completion. I know once we get up on the app […]
  • Would you rather: 3 x Tesla Powerwalls OR 2 x SolarEdge Energy Hub + 2 x LG Resu Prime 16H June 22, 2021
    Hey there! I had a similar post yesterday, but this question is more specific, and I'm also going to lay out what I understand are the pros, cons, and similarities of both systems. Some of what I state may be incorrect, and if that turns out to be the case, please let me know, and […]
