Turn on your AC Disconnect

Locate your AC Disconnect unit and check that the lever on the right side is in the upward position.


Navigate the Tesla App to register your account and verify solar production

To complete installation, you must register your Powerwall to a Tesla account and connect to your home WiFi. Click here for the instructions.

You can also use the Tesla App to follow your energy production in real time. It may take up to an hour before production is visible.
