Great blog post and really cleared up some of the TOU questions I had- and also why it seems (at least here in GA) that residential solar has gotten a little less attractive in the past few years than it used to be.. I think it is because of some of the funny business tezco has described, and also the net metering changes originally mentioned by nwdiver. I'm talking to installers now looking at possibly doing a 10 kw system.. would love to cover the car and the house and net as close to zero as possible... they don't make it as easy as it used to be though.
Gotta love the corporatism.

I ordered my Model S in early June and I pick it up this coming Friday. Red with the beige interior. I got a few bonuses and feel lucky to get one. I'm going from a Land Rover to a Tesla, amazing. I'm tall at 6'6" and was amazed to find all the leg room I needed. The service has been stellar and when they called and said it would be a few days late they offered me a Tesla jacket as a gesture. I can't wait to drive down and pick it, I'm having the electrical installed at home before it arrives. Meanwhile I need to bone up on the system and get a handle on things. I was just getting the hang of the Range. I'll keep it but I doubt I'll use it much, I'll be too busy having a blast with the environmentally friendly Tesla. My footprint is saved just in time.
Thank for explaining the ability to control the energy usage... Reasonable speed, a little planning, etc. RV Parks seem open to allowing overnight charges. Good information, thank you.
Until I read your trip report, I was having FUD about not driving the SuperCharger routes. And since we are on the Texas SC island I thought we were stuck. Now I realize my adventure begins with a little more planning. Good bye FUD, hello open road. Thank you for sharing.
