Turning On Your System

After your Solar Roof is installed, we will provide you with instructions to turn on your system once permission-to-operate (PTO) has been granted by your utility. To get started, follow these steps:

  1. Locate your main electrical service panel.
  2. Flip on breakers labeled ‘Solar System,’ ‘PV,’ 'Battery' or ‘Energy Storage.’
  3. If Powerwalls are installed, flip on the Enable switch found on the right side of each Powerwall.
  4. If equipped, flip on all external disconnects.
  5. Download the Tesla app on your smartphone.
  6. Use the Tesla app to follow your energy production in real time. It may take up to an hour before production is visible.
