I'm not super interested in buying the new Tesla powerwall since it is actually not in my interest to store day solar energy to power my house at night. I benefit others (and my bill) more by sharing it during the day when it can be used by others.
But, I would be interested in having my car that's already plugged into a 50A circuit, be able to power my house if I lose power for some reason.
Obviously this would be rare, so it wouldn't be much of a burden on the car's batteries since it would only happen once a year at most.
I realize there are load and inverter considerations, but quite frankly 50A 240V is _more_ than enough to power all my house and 90Kwh is about 3.5 days' worth of electricity for my house without any load shedding.
Is that something Tesla has been considering at all, or not really?
