I see from recent press reports that Tesla has installed a significant number of Powerwalls across the country and even overseas. I understand that the Powerwall is mainly meant to complement home solar installations, but I was wondering if anyone is using the Powerwall as a source of backup electricity in the event of a power failure?
My home is not suitable for PV cells on the roof, but we have frequent power outages and I have considered purchasing a diesel or natural gas generator. The Powerwall looks like it might work quite well as a backup power source, however, and I was wondering if any of you Powerwall users could share your experiences.
