Using Tesla Car as Solar battery...?

Using Tesla Car as Solar battery...?

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but:

Can someone explain to me whether or not a Tesla auto battery (whether Model S/X/3/TBD) could theoretically be used as a storage system for home solar?

I have a Model S. I have solar. I'm considering buying a small battery backup system for the solar for my home. But meanwhile I've got a huge 85kwh battery sitting in my driveway.

I know the connections don't work today. But theoretically, can this work? Why or why not?

Seems like we have these giant batteries sitting in our driveway. Gotta be a way to use them.

And... what got me thinking about this yet again... anyone think this is relevant to the Solar City acquisition?

Tesla doesnt want to. It would wear out tbe batteries faster.
