    Hi,

    If they are mounting the powerwalls in the garage have them mount a subpanel in the garage and then powerwall and EV chargers can connect to this new subpanel.  They will probably run a 1" rigid conduit in basement ceiling to connect main panel to the garage powerwall anyways.  Best to have flexibility of a subpanel.  I had similar issue with solar/backup(older Outback brand) on far end of house from main panel.  Having backup is great.  Regards Ant

    Hi,

    I'm scheduled to have two powerwalls and two solar panels units installed right after Thanksgiving.    The Tesla person who inspected my house said that I'm the first in the area to have this.   Dunno how large that area is.

    In any case, if anyone else has this, do you have any advice for me?  E.g., there's apparently some freedom about where to place things.  The powerwalls can be on the garage's back wall, or on both sides of a back corner.  The inverter can be inside or outside.  Etc.  

    I would like a setup that makes it easy to add a car charger later.

    Complicating things is that the electrical service is at the far end of the basement from the garage.

    The Tesla person was giving me choices, but a second opinion is always welcome.  Thanks.
