Tesla vehicle as temporary power wall?

Tesla vehicle as temporary power wall?

I am having Tesla solar panels installed on my roof next week. I also have placed an order for a Model 3. I was wondering, if in a power outage I could use the car as a "powerwall" for the house?

Not yet, I hope one day. Even if it was just for emergencies (hurricane, earthquake, etc) for now the powerwall is the only tesla battery backup they offer. Also did you use a referral code for your solar.? If not and you would like one (for an extra 5 year warranty. Email me @ acegreat1@yahoo.com

That would expressly void the warranty.

It would be great and there is talk to possibly initiate this (vehicle to grid) lets hope it comes to be. In the mean time solar panels with a powerwall allow fueling up a model 3 in a power outage or if there is no powerwall the model three can offer heat, air conditioning, information via radio and a way to charge cell phones.
