Well, they will have one more tomorrow.... just been picked up at mine.

Is that the one at 31% SOH ?

Yeah, the very one. You got the other out of the 2 for sale. Small world. They took it back no problem, parcel force collected this evening. Kudos for that but they shouldn't be selling gear that far gone at 75% of price and not knowing history.  In saying that I shouldn't have bought. Regardless, well played Sir,  enjoy yours! Smiley

I am very impressed with the difference the extra one is making on the graphs. Full control of house demand with no grid grabbing, pretty cool. Smiley

I'm just shocked that the one you got was so out of whack. Must've had faulty cells for the SOH to be that low.
What year was it manufactured ?

Green is battery SOC
Purple above line is discharge, below is charge
Orange above line is sell, below is buy.
When i think back to 2016 when we were basically sleepwalking in our power use, I am so glad that we woke up. Its been excellent fun and to be in control of what. when and how much is outstanding. Smiley

Not seen that message, maybe a Tesla battery specific?

Yes - I get that if I log on to the portal with my Laptop. It's looking at the battery status of your device.  Quite clever really.

Can't see how they would be able to monitor the battery status as I haven't shared login details to my Tesla app and why would it be suggesting to unplug the battery especially when the battery is supplying the house loads with power stored from the PV system?

Just sent them an email asking about it, will post when I hear back.

Yes I have seen it when logging onto Octopus with my laptop.  It is referring to the state of charge of your laptop battery and has detected you have the power adaptor plugged in and still charging. It is suggesting you unplug your power adaptor.  I don't have any Tesla Powerwall or any other brand of house storage battery!

It only seems to happen when the grid is using a lot of "dirty" generated electricity. Doesn't seem to happen  when  clean generation is high percentage.

It's the battery in the device you're logging into the Octopus website with, not your Tesla Powerwall

Oh, is that all it is, thought it was some way they could read/estimate/guess the home battery status.  facepalm

Received first electricity bill for Agile today, 17th Feb to 31st July. 164 days.... 51.74. That'll do! 33.20 is standing charge and 16.08 is electricity bought post Agile shenanigans, the remaining 2.46 is VAT.

The game now is to see how far down it goes in the next year with the new battery and extended solar array assisting.  hysteria

9.8p average E bought per day...Holy Jamoley, doesn't seem real wackoold

Let's hope they can live with people like us, though there will be thousands more customers on standard tariffs.

Figures for last 142 days:
9.91 cost of electricity @ avg. 4.4p/unit
-3.66 paid to use electricity @ avg. -2.88p/unit
134.46 rebate for exported electricity @ avg. 4.4p/unit (would have been 165.31 on Outgoing Fixed, maybe should change?)
