GM, 7 days in a row with clouds.. we managed an 11 yesterday. More clouds and rain today later.. can't remember a worse weather stretch. .not even a tesla battery could help this long..5 more day till the valley bottoms out.. ho! ho! ho! Great day bud... joe

Wow! Talk about a weal solar stretch.. 5 days of 4,5,6s.. I harvested more in one day than in 5! Long talk with SC in home depot.. tesla constructs the car port charger station.. and SC applies the solar pv.. according to the rep,almost all SC s stuff is US made.. really cool.. he gets his incentives paid in SC stock bonds... best joe

GM.. last post defined>>> gf's = girlfriend's... working my butt off?? that's retired speak for working @ all. .. over 55 community.. place where retired folks who don't work their butts off live... manufactured home.. the quick and cookie cutter version of a home.. (each house has the exact same flaws and defects with it's cheap materials and construction!!) yup.. my gf bought a fixer upper in a 55 + community.. Gawd.. I am old!! good day eh? joe

I want that credit to ride through the winter.. and cash out in February.. we'll see....

by Joeski1  Dec 01, 2014

if I get a credit again by the next 'true up'.. they buy it for bill credit... and the cycle repeats again... if one has the wrong month.. like october... they "steal" my credit for next to nothing 9about 25% per kWhrs of what they charge me ... .. and then ya end up paying for heat and holiday lights...

I was super surprised nobody in Nj thought about that plate possibility.. the guy who let me drive his tesla has KICKGAS ... and I jus got the confirmation letter from the DMS today!.. other ideas I had were NOPIPES... OR ELKTRIC ... the true up is all accounting.. they buy my excess power credit for cash.. apply it to the bill... at that point.. the current spread between my production and use becomes my zero... whether its a 5 kW hr difference.. or 6000... if I close the spread.. my credit grow again... if the spread gets wider.. I pay them for the additional use....

Ps.. by virtue of the luck... my 2013 acura Ilx hybrid will wear the Nj license plate KWHRPWR.. my approval went through.. you know that plate will go on the tesla if I get one!!...

I am working on having my net meter true up date moved from October to February.. that would allow us to carry that credit into our heating season later... i think we already burnt the entire credit.. though I turned the gas furnace override on.. so the heat pump won't burn any more kwhr.. that might help us catch our breath before the next meter read on 12/19.. they screwed up our read.. now they have us 5900+ hrs ahead.. when we are like 300 behind.. they only want $2.53.. so that's all I'll send them!! If I can make up lost ground with the gas filling n for a few weeks.. I might be able to get that to zero back before the next read.. but it will be close...
