So SCE had a scheduled outage starting last night, and supposedly ending at 8AM this morning. Power actually restored 16 hours, 17 minutes later. Finally got to see how the Powerwalls + Solar PV + solar thermal worked.
Ended the day with no issues, Powerwalls fully charged, PV generated 25 kWh, thermal collector got the tank over 115F without help from the (offline) electric heaters, and I even squeezed a couple of kWh into the Model 3. Not bad for a February day.
Mono county is one of those trying to “reopen” despite having a sudden spike in cases last week. Their justification seems to be that Newsom changed the criteria to make it somewhat easier for the small counties to go to the state’s “Stage 2,” which allows more businesses to open. They hope to have the Fishing Opener on June 1st as usual.
I’m not convinced the rural counties’ “reopening” is wise, since us Angelenos will bring the virus there as soon as we’re able to go. But that’s rather out of my hands. We’re probably going to go up the last weekend of the month ourselves.
Casa Conway’s in a relative stable pattern now. We get up and go to work in our home offices every day, we do a couple of walks a week and a couple of yoga classes, and once (and sometimes twice) a week there’s a shopping run. I last was out on 15 May, to get the snow tires off the Model 3.
Oh, I spent 9 hours on the 16th cleaning the garage. It’s a long way from done.
