Solar / PW does not charge EV
I had my solar system and PW turn on in Dec. Since them I have been monitoring what the app shows my home energy usage is and what my electricity provider shows. I noticed that for some days the delta between the 2 is ~15-20kWh.
When I did a deep dive I realized the delta comes when I charge my car. The energy consumed for charging the car is not reported on the home usage on the Tesla app. Moreover I also see that no matter when I charge the energy for EV charging always comes from grid no matter how much solar panels are producing or level of PW charge. On some days I have solar panels producing ~1.5kWh with 100% PW charge and the solar energy goes to grid instead of charging my EV. It is as if the circuit for EV charging is invisible to the solar/PW set up. So I end up paying for EV charging to grid and the excess energy goes to grid for free (no net metering).
I have a 4kW system and 1 PW and Tesla Model 3. Did anyone else also have same issues?
