I recently had a residential system installed and it is up and running. 5.28 kW solar array with Panasonic panels and a single Tesla Powerwall 2.
My custom power reserve is set at 30%. I am trying to decide what might be the best setting to maximize the economy of the solar array and the useful life of the battery as well. We are 0.5 credit to 1 from the power company here. What are others using as the power reserve % and why?. Have others had good or bad experience with the feature on the Powerwall to increase backup in the event of weather events. Locally, we don't have a lot of power outages absent a weather event.
Thanks for any and all opinions.
