I get a lot of questions about my powerwall, so here is an overview video:

That's a really thorough overview of your powerwall setup! Thank you for posting it!

Now that I have 2 solar chargers, my Batrium to Schneider translator needed to control them both. The translator can now support N chargers and will set charging currents from the Batrium (limited, full, etc).


I have also setup influxdb with Grafana to show data from the Batrium, IotaWatt and the Schneider equipment. Pretty happy with the layout and dataset so far.


How much do the surrounding trees/houses impact your solar?

Right now my production is awful. Its my first winter with the whole setup. The garage array doesn't produce much. I am used to do doing over 30kWh a day, right now I am under 10kWh. Is what it is though.

Great walk-through! Thank you for sharing the video - that was very thorough.
I've also acquired a large number of these cells and have similar plans. I rather like your rod and spacer approach for module construction. 

Wondering if you could share some of your thoughts regarding these cells in parallel. Given their large discharge capability, I've been a bit worried about the potential for cell failure in a parallel string, leading me to consider designs with a per-pouch fuse.  Are you using any in the 25p stacks, or did you consider them unnecessary? If the latter, due to gentle charge/discharge, aggressive monitoring, something else?
