Hey All, Just want to share my CT experience as a power generator. I did all the electrical myself. I live in the city and grid power is not any issue except when there is a power outage (seldomly happens). I have decided to go off-grid experience for myself. First off, I have 10kw of solar on my roof and a 150kW of 48 volts battery pack and distributed by 4 6500watts inverters, connected in parallel to provide a 240volt to my main panel. See pictures.

I also have a Champion generator (12500 watts), only 8500 watts out with propane when in use. It’s also loud even with an insulated box. No where near the the CT 240v outlet. CT is giving me 100AMP of charging power and only draw 5.7kW. This is super impressive to me. All my battery pack have their own BMS. I knew all along, the CT is my ultimate tools/vehicle for me. I would say, for my use, worth the $112k spent.

Impressive! The wall charger is providing 57v@100amps? Or is the wall Charger providing the max CT output for PowerShare of 11ish kw@240v? I didn’t know the wall charger could provide 57v… 57v based on 5.7kw@100amps in your example.

You appear to used every available inch to squeeze everything in. Nice work with the gutter. Very very cool. Very well done and extremely impressive.

I have 22kw solar, enphase micros, four powerwalls, Lumin smart panel, wall charger, model y. Control transformer 600amp service, 200 to gateway. Polaris tapped twin 42 circuit copper bus bar panels. Backfed copper bus combiner for the solar.

Cybertruck is the missing piece to this system to get to near 24/7 energy independence with no concern for average daily load. Curious how Tesla handles loads over 11kw when batteries deplete and only CT through PowerShare. Four Powerwall batteries provide more Kw than CT with Wall charger.

impressive. being in the north, i'm just thinking of power outlet on my furnace/long extension cord to CT to run it in a midwinter power outage. maybe a split off to the refrigerator, but power in my area doesn't go down often or very long.

What's your annual home energy consumption (kWh)?
Base of my bill, we were using 12kWh/day. My bill costed me on the high 300 to 400 on the average and summer time add another 30%. I stopped pay SCE since last 4th of July.

For me, this was on my bucket's list, speaking from a mechanic. It turns out great for me though. No better time in my life then now, to have this done.

Thanks. I was using 48V 100AMP charger using 240v AC. As you could see, I max out the amperage on the charger and it only draw 5.7kW from my CT. I have a 12500 watts gas generator and it could only gave me 30Amp, and it was disturbingly loud. The CT 240v outlet (14-50 plug) is a game changer for my off-grid system. Supercharge my CT when I need to bring power home. It's like going to the grocery and bring home food. I could of gone with powershare but the quote I got was way too high of a cost, so I canceled it. Thanks to the $400 charger I spent 2 years ago.

Thanks, I learn a lot from many sources no YouTube. I am sure the the CT could do so many things including power up your house when you need it to.
