    I used a table generator site http://www.tablesgenerator.com/ to create this latex code, but it doesn't work in a thread when I paste it in between dollar dollar delimiters.

    Help please.

    $$
    \begin{table}[]
    \centering
    \caption{My caption}
    \label{my-label}
    \begin{tabular}{ll}
    1 & TW base \\
    1 & TW reserves \\
    2 & TW total \\
    3 & \$/watt utility \\
    6 & \$/watt rooftop \\
    6.5 & \$trillion storage \\
    \$14 & \$trillion total
    \end{tabular}
    \end{table}
    $$

    Have you tried two hashes instead of two dollars?

    Here it is with hashes.

    \begin{table}[]
    \centering
    \caption{My caption}
    \label{my-label}
    \begin{tabular}{ll}
    1 & TW base \\
    1 & TW reserves \\
    2 & TW total \\
    3 & \$/watt utility \\
    6 & \$/watt rooftop \\
    6.5 & \$trillion storage \\
    \$14 & \$trillion total
    \end{tabular}
    \end{table}

    apparently, Tabular is not implemented in Mathjax.

    Use
    Code (Text):

    \ begin{array}{ll}

    \ end{array}
     
    (With no space after \, I put it their because it becomes invisible when I write it the correct way!)

    Yes, thank you @Shyan That got me closer, now I'll try to get rid of centering the cells.

    \begin{array}{7}
    1 & TW base \\
    1 & TW reserves \\
    2 & TW total \\
    3 & \$/watt utility \\
    6 & \$/watt rooftop \\
    6.5 & \$trillion storage \\
    \$14 & \$trillion total
    \end{array}

    \begin{array}{ll} 1 & TWbase \\ 1 & TWreserves \\ 2 & TWtotal \\ 3 & \$wattutility \\ 6 & \$wattrooftop \\ 6.5 & \$trillionstorage \\ 14 & \$trilliontotal \end{array}

    Do you exactly write \ begin{array}{ll} ? The second l is supposed to align the text to the left!

    P.S.
    This may be helpful.
