Powerwall in lieu of a backup generator
Although I'm considering converting my roof to solar, I'm not sure if it would be a good idea for my 150 year old wooden house. That said, I live in an area with frequent power outages, and many of my neighbors have diesel or natural gas generators.
It occurs to me that even if I don't go with solar, a series of one or more Powerwalls might be a good alternative to having a backup generator. Are there any Powerwall customers who have used these for this application, and, if so, can you please share your experience?
It's too bad we can't find a way to reverse the energy from out Tesla cars to supply our houses with electricity in periods of brief power outages.
