    Afternoon everyone, I have a quick question about the Tesla Gen 3 Wall Charger? Does it require Type A 30MA RCD protection or not. Only because the Wall Connector features built-in RCD Type A + DC 6mA. I know we should be installing Type A 30mA protection however we also work with what the...

    Hi, Does the Tesla Power Wall receive DC from the solar panels? Or does the solar panels' DC get converter to AC by an inverter on the roof, and then the AC goes to the Tesla Power Wall?

    Nikola Tesla "my inventions"

    Just got hold of a copy of his Autobiography (courtesy Camerabloke) not a big book and an easy read, seems he was a very complex person as well as being in my mind a genius. Worth a read.

    Tesla Power Wall ....

    I was in Cambridge yesterday and Tesla had a unit in the main precinct where they had a couple of their cars and the Power Wall unit ...... Anyone got any experience with this technology? To me it seems a fairly good idea, to charge a battery and use it "later" Any views?

    Tesla Powerwalls

    I've got a keen eye on Tesla Powerwalls, and I think there'll be a future in it. I think I'll be trying to get sorted as a certified installer.
