I have both solar panels and a powerwall installed and operating just fine. Recently however we lost grid power on a clear and sunny day and saw that solar production also went to 0 at the same time, as soon as the grid came back up solar production also returned. Our powerwall covered us fine during the outage but no power came from the solar panels to either charge the battery or power the home. It was my understanding that when you have both solar panels and the back up powerwall, the inverter allows energy generated by solar to go to either the home energy use or to recharging the battery.
Has anyone else had this issue and if so how do you resolve it?
