Over in PriusChat, I think you mentioned a couple years ago that you got a ventless Whirlpool model? Any issues with the dryer? We have been hoping there would be more competition joining the fray of heat pump dryers, but not really any new players in the last couple of years. When our electric dryer goes, we definitely would like to go heat pump and probably Whirlpool if they remain one of the few games in town.

Everything running smoothly with the PowerWall batteries? I think you mentioned there were some bugs to work out initially. Really nice to have that buffer/storage.
The dryer is working great! We don’t use it often, pretty much just bedding and towels.
Regarding the PowerWall batteries, while they work, we are still having the same issues. They charge very sporadically, cutting in an out. Charging them takes 2 to 3 times as long.
Discharge is very smooth and the ability to easily change how much is reserved for backup and how much is used when the sun goes down is wonderful.
Better than I expected.
The installer has been in touch with Tesla Energy. The current line of thought is that a wireless connection doesn’t have a solid connection, so they are going to hard wire it.
