    I am very happy with my Tesla 14.4 kW solar + 1 PowerWall installation experience. The biggest delays were my own in decision and the county approvals - not Teslar Solar's fault! The installation team were great. Professional, friendly, dedicated (continuing to work despite strong wind and poor lighting, no complaints when it took two days longer than expected), neat work on the roof and inside my attic. Price considerably lower than quotes from other vendors. Final product looks much nicer than others in the neighborhood. There was only one negative experience with trying to reach my adviser where I was on hold for a long time and when I had to leave the call the mailbox was full.

    Everything I experienced from the buying of the system on the website to the installation and now production was very positive. Perhaps some of this has to do with location - I am in the Sacramento area so there's a Tesla service center and Tesla energy warehouse not too far. Nonetheless, I worked hand-in-hand with the same project advisor throughout all the steps and any issues. The teams who showed up to install the system were extremely courteous and didn't waste any time.

    Noteworthy pieces for those considering solar are:

    + This is most likely take a few months so be patient with the process. There are permits and permission from your electrical utility that is needed which goes beyond the "simple" part of bolting panels in your roof. Your timeframe will depend on the timeliness of all parties involved.

    + Powerwall (batteries) are now a part of ordering solar from Tesla which means you can't get JUST solar. They are still quite expensive so perhaps the value goes down but they are useful in my experience. My solar production extends into night-hours due to my house using the battery instead of the grid. We looked at solar as being an investment, especially since we plan to live in our home forever. Once the system is paid for, it'll be free energy from that point on.

    They worked with my on a non-standard sized system (6.375 kW) and helped me understand the pros/cons on using their smaller vs. larger inverter (I ended up with the larger inverter). Once I approved the design they filed the paper work with our energy provider and obtained a permit with our city in ~ 2 weeks. After that they communicated that supply chain issue will likely push my install out to March, but they would work to move it up, which they did. Install took 8 hours over two days and happened the last week of December. Final inspection passed on 1/10/22. We are now waiting for Permission to Operate from our energy company. From approval of design to final inspection took 7 weeks!
