Site Survey and Bigger system/Power wall

Site Survey and Bigger system/Power wall

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to get an idea of how long it usually takes to hear back from Tesla after having the site survey done. I had a nice gentleman come out on Saturday January 26, 2019 but due to the weather, we was only able to look at my attic and my breaker box. He came back out on Tuesday January 29, 2019 to get on my roof to finish up the survey.

I also wanted to get forum members opinions about something else. Is it better to have the largest system I could afford (comfortably) or go for a slightly smaller system and get two powerwalls. I like the idea of powerwalls, but they are a bit pricey. I think I would need at least 2. Currently I had agreed to a 12.025kW system but this could change based on the results of the site survey. I currently have a Tesla Model 3 and at some point (not sure when), I would like to get my wife an electric car/SUV.

Thanks In Advance!

Mine took about two weeks. The technician performing the site survey collects all the data (electrical load out, roof measurements, attic measurements, etc) and hands that off to the design team. They will build out all the electrical/solar designs that are necessary to for the real cost of your system. Once that's done its given back to your sales rep, who should reach back out to you to review and move forward with financing.
If its been a few weeks then reach out to your sales rep and ask for a status update.
