Just wondering if there was a way to have your powerwalls export to the grid?
I currently monitor the spot price of power every 5 minutes, if its expensive, i turn off power hungry appliances like spa pools, washer/dryer etc.
I would like for the ability to tell the power wall to export power to the grid in the event spot pricing was high, as with net metering i get paid the spot price.
I currently get paid for exporting solar during the day if the power wall is full.
On occasions, the spot price of power can go up to $11,000 per kw, this happened last night due to an event on a mains power line feeding the country.
If i could have exported a few kw during that time, I could have paid my power walls off over night just about.
Look forward to any assistance with this.
