Registering Your Solar Inverter

After your Tesla Solar Inverter is installed, you must register it to your Tesla Account in order to access power flow and energy data monitoring in your Tesla app. To begin registration, download the Tesla app and sign in with your Tesla Account. If you already own Tesla vehicles or energy products, register your Tesla Solar Inverter using the same email address.

Register your Tesla Solar Inverter by following these steps in the Tesla app:

  1. Tap the menu in the top-right corner.
  2. Tap ‘My Products.’
  3. Tap ‘Add Product’ > ‘Solar Inverter.’
  1. Follow the prompts to locate and scan your Tesla Solar Inverter QR code or enter the Wi-Fi details manually.
  1. Choose a name for your home and address for accurate location-based features. If you already have a Tesla Solar Inverter installed in your home, select the original site instead of creating a new one. This will allow the data for all your Tesla Solar Inverters to be aggregated into one product in the Tesla app.
  1. Accept the request to join your Tesla Solar Inverter’s local Wi-Fi network called ‘TEG-XXX.’
  1. Select your home Wi-Fi network and enter your network password.

After completing setup, Tesla Solar Inverter's power flow and energy data will begin syncing with Tesla for use in your app. This will also begin the final registration process.

Troubleshooting the Registration Process

If you are unable to connect to your Tesla Solar Inverter

  • Find steps on how to connect your Tesla Solar Inverter to your home Wi-Fi network.
  • Check that your Tesla Solar Inverter is broadcasting its Wi-Fi access point. This will have a network name of ‘TEG-XXX’ where XXX is the last three characters of the serial number. 
  • If your Tesla Solar Inverter is not broadcasting, power cycle your Tesla Solar Inverter by turning off the circuit breaker. The green LED on the right-hand side will turn off. Turn the circuit breaker back on after one minute.
  • If your Tesla Solar Inverter does not start broadcasting the Wi-Fi access point after two minutes, contact us.

Note: The Wi-Fi access point of your Tesla Solar Inverter is available within 15 minutes of the system being powered on.
