1) can a power wall be charged from the grid at off peak rates ( TOU) ( can the utility tell Tesla to cripple the power wall I believe in Australia 11kwh power walls are crippled to 3kwh)
2) If as an example the house has a 10kw power demand and solar produces 5kw can the solar be blended with the utility electron flow or are the electrons from the panel and electrons from the grid forced to go into separate loads on the electrical panel.
3) In peak house demand can electrons from the panel and electrons from the power wall and electrons from utility be blended together or again are they restricted to individual circuits.
4) If the panels fill the power walls and electrons are left over and you don't want to sell them to the utility can you dump them...feed them into the resistance ( impedance) in the panels. This avoids the net metering tier fee from some utilities which seems based on max possible electron flow into the grid.
5)If the utility is out, can you direct the power wall and any solar into specific circuits or are the circuits fixed and determined or are they selectable by the homeowner on the fly.
