Re: Tesla PW2

I hear they are model 3 cells. 5kW continuous draw I don’t know. It is supposed to, peak 7.2 for 10 seconds. I try to do my energy intensive work during the day when solar inverter augments. I have it set as though peak charges are from 7am-9pm. This is true if I consider anything above my 13c Syner...

Re: Tesla PW2

I have had the Powerwall installed. Been fiddling with the settings. Works as advertised. I see the last software with notes update added Western Australian 3-Phase support (something I heard about through my discussions). Latest update seems to add "grid services". On set-up you were asked whether ...

Re: Tesla PW2

So the original grid tie inverter would have to be removed to be able to fit the Powerwall? Here in South Australia, as soon as you touch anything to do with a grid tie system, the whole thing has to be renegotiated and generally results in a much smaller feed in tariff. The 6kW solar and 15.5kWh b...

Re: Tesla PW2

Hi Does anyone have current pricing in Perth for the Powerwall 2? Any installer that can be recommended? I have a quote from over east company but I am starting to worry about the install as they told me that western power is no longer allowing the install of powerwall 2s on single phase properties ...

Re: Heat pump hot water systems

Thanks for letting us know -I think that is a good price from my past searches into this. I used to think that roof top passive solar was the way to go but I think that these days, for less fuss if you aren't doing a new build, heat pumps are the way to go. The insulation looks like a good job (ex t...

Re: Heat pump hot water systems

Cool post re heat pump. I have very old gas HWS which still keeps on going, but once it finally dies I will look out for a heat pump and cut off the gas connection. I am on the old smart power too - so would like a system that can run with the sunny shoulder and off peak times for boost if needed. F...

Re: PV diversion EV charger

Available in Australia and review seems positive. https://www.drivezero.com.au/charging/r ... v-charger/

I wonder if it would work on the vectrix if I changed over plugs.

Re: Leaf at Pickles auctions: 7 bars left

I have tried to find out the cost of a replacement leaf battery (in thinking about the value of getting a second hand model as a city car). But I haven’t found anywhere that actually provides a certified quote. I have seen wide cost ranges though. Is this $9000 plus labour something that has been qu...

WTB: Vectrix (or functional equivilant)

I have a Vectrix. Easily does 100kmh. Does 80km easy in mixed riding. Great to ride one or two up. I have only 13000 on it so many many years on lion cells before I can justify the upgrade to leaf cells or better. So good.
