Energy Data

The Tesla app provides you with insight into your home's solar energy generation and usage. Use the energy graphs to observe your home’s energy data over time and learn how to maximize the benefits of your renewable energy.

Energy Sources and Destinations

To view your home’s energy sources and destinations:

Step 1: Open the Tesla app and switch to your energy site.

Step 2: Tap the ‘Energy’ screen.

Step 3: Tap on the component that you would like to view located at the top of the screen.

Step 4: Tap the breakdown icon on the top right of the screen to switch between the total aggregated view to the component-specific view.

Timescale Selector

To view your energy data by day, week, month, year or lifetime:

Step 1: From the ‘Energy’ screen, tap the timescale selector on the top right corner.

Step 2: Select your preferred timescale (Day, Week, Month, Year or Lifetime).

Step 3: Swipe sideways along the middle of the screen to toggle between time periods. Double tap along the right edge of the graph to jump to the most recent period.

Depending on your selected timescale, the energy graph will display stacked area charts or bar charts to visualize your energy sources and destinations as part of your home’s total usage.

Note: Some solar systems may not have a site meter to show home and grid usage. If your system does not have the component details below, learn more about monitoring your system for solar panels or Solar Roof. To access additional features and insights on the Tesla app, consider purchasing a solar system with Powerwall.

Home Component

Your home is the center of your energy ecosystem, and the graphs and data show your home energy usage. Use the ‘Breakdown Icon’ on the top right of the screen to change the graphs to show energy sources to your home — from solar, Powerwall or the grid.

Solar Component

Solar is the source of your system’s clean, renewable energy and reduces your dependence on the grid, and the graphs and data show the total amount of solar energy produced by your system. Use the ‘Breakdown Icon’ on the top right of the screen to change the graphs to show energy destinations from solar to your home, Powerwall or the grid.

Powerwall Component

Your Powerwall provides energy storage, improves your home’s self-sufficiency and provides economic benefits while keeping your energy clean at any hour of the day. The total value shows Powerwall energy discharged. When your Powerwall is charging, the graph will display negative values, and when your Powerwall is discharging, the graph will display positive values.

The ‘Powerwall Charge Level’ graph shows your charge level and backup reserve percentage over time and always shows your current backup reserve.

Grid Component

The grid data shows net grid use, where a negative value indicates that more energy was exported to the grid than was imported. Positive values on the graph show grid imports (or usage), while negative values on graph show grid exports.

Download My Data

At the bottom of each energy graph screen, tap ‘Download My Data’ to export your system data in CSV format for further analysis. Data will be exported based on your current timescale (Day, Week, Month, Year or Lifetime) and selected time period (e.g., May, June, July, etc.). For systems with Powerwall installed, your charge level data is available at 15-minute intervals.
