So many confusing stories about the Tesla Solar experience (mostly negative but also some positive) that I wanted to post my story updating each step of the way. Hopefully the journey will be positive but I promise it'll be real. Maybe this will help someone else thinking of going down this path with Tesla.
Late August 2019 - Initial deposit placed.
9-7-19 - Purchase details were updated. This is for a small 3.8Kw (12 panels) system plus (1) Powerwall.
Based on the photos of my electric panel they determined that it would need to be upgraded to a 200 amp panel and a quote for this work was provided.
9-9-19 - I found a local electrician to do the panel relocation and upgrade for a better price so I let Tesla know.
9-10-19 - Documents from Tesla arrived via FedEx for my signature. Signed and returned.
9-25-19 - Final Inspection from City - Panel relocation and upgrade to 200 amp passed.
9-26-19 - Sent new photos to Tesla showing final panel (approved permit).
They sent me onto the next phase with a new specialist. I'm now waiting for them to submit plans for a permit to do the work.
So far so good ...
