Re: Charged capacity of Powerwall2 on VPP

Update: Contacted AGL who in turn contacted Tesla and the issue has now been fixed remotely.PW2 took a full charge today of 12.8kWh but it wasn't flat when the sun came up (lasted all night) so this looks good now!Loving the PW2 so far. The Sunverge was a joke in comparison.

Charged capacity of Powerwall2 on VPP

Hi all, I'm curious to know from those who have had their Sunverge batteries replaced with the Tesla Powerwall 2 what total capacity they are seeing going to the battery on a full charge. I ask this because my PW2 is (according to the Telsa app) only taking on 8.3kWh before it claims its full (100%) and starts exporting solar to the grid. However the battery is supposed to have 13.5kWh of *usable* capacity!In the screenshot, the battery did get to empty (at approx 8am) where it drew from the gr ...

Re: Backup Power Solution

Just noted AGLs reply (thanks for that), however I had a power outage recently and noted the following. The battery was flat and so there was no power in the house. When the mains power returned about an hour later, the non-battery circuits got power back immediately, with the battery backup circuits getting power (without my intervention) about 20 seconds later.Therefore it would seem that you do not need to worry about loosing the content of the fridge.Hope this helpsRob

Re: Grid draw doesn't make sense

@Dave @Bryce I only have AGL IQ to assess my draw from the grid which is why the WattsClever device interests me. When I'm generating more solar than the house load, I do not see any large draw from the grid. Import from the grid seems to correlate *pretty* closely to whether solar has the load covered or not. For how long does the realtime monitor show it spiking for? Because IQ on the web is in 1 hour increments I'm not likely to see a spike if it is brief.I can download the data from IQ i ...
