No more powerwall feature?

No more powerwall feature?

Perhaps I'm just confused, but previously (a day or two ago) when I would go to the website and choose Small, Medium, or Large for solar panel, it would suggest 1, 2 or 3 powerwalls as part of the installation. A little checkbox, do you want?

Now, I don't see that anymore. Wondering if it is removed because of tax credit stuff?

(Edit) I was told Tesla can still add on powerwalls but it would be a separate order.

Anyone notice or have thoughts?

They must have run out of them again. They are also not listed for a solar glass roof.

If you're planning on later adding PWs to a PV installation, let them know during the planning phase of the PV project. Some decisions on the specifics of the PV installation could make the PW installation easier down the road.

If I had it to do over, I would TAKE A SCREENSHOT of each page I consented to!

Off topic, but I can post these comments, but I see no way to originate a new Topic!
Am I missing something? Thanks.

They still have them. Just changed the ordering process. Before, you could add them to a solar order. Now, they want them to be separate orders. Understandably so. Reason being, many are choosing the "subscription" option for the Solar panels and buying the Power Walls. No subscription offered for power walls.

Also, the options were too limited. If you tried to order solar, it gave you the option to add a specific number of power walls, with no ability to change the number of power walls. For me, I only wanted two power walls, but the only option to add it to my solar wall, was for three of them.

So, it just cleans up the process and separates the two transactions to give you a lot more freedom in setting up the actual package that you want.

I just confirmed my order today. Subscription on the Large Solar Panels and separate purchase of two power walls.

Except... They were also giving a $9,500 credit for buying the solar and the powerwall together (at least for the extra large solar and powerwalls). When you buy them separately, you don't get that. Luckily, it looks like I placed my order on the last day they had that.

If you want both, just place a Solar Panel order, then when they reach out to you, tell them you want to add power walls. Discount isn't much if you just get two power walls. But the third power wall ends up being about $1,500 if you get a third. That's on a "large" solar system. Apparently, per SteveWin1, it's more of a discount for the extra large system.

Tesla just needs to revise the website options so buyers can be more selective. They want to have everyone do everything online. But, the Solar setup, they're obviously still sorting out the kinks. At some point, I'm sure they'll make it where you can order solar and power walls together again while at the same time, being able to select how many power walls you want, not what they think you want.
