Powerwall best practices with net metering
Hi, I am looking for input to optimize my Powerwall settings for maximum longevity of the Powerwalls. I am in S. Florida, and I have a 10.54 kW system with 2 Powerwalls. My 10.54 kW system should offset around 70-75% of my energy needs. My electric utility (FPL) has a net metering agreement that provides direct energy credit offsets for power sent back to the grid. With the above in mind, is there any benefit to use the Powerwalls to self power the home on a daily basis? It seems to me that my electric bill would not change at all, and the more I cycle the Powerwalls the more I will wear the batteries. Since the primary purpose of the Powerwalls for me is storm backup, what is the best setting for preserving the Powerwalls?
