That's not all to say we shouldn't move in that direction. I just think it makes the Powerwall "iffy" for most uses. I think you're correct, though. I think those folks wishing to go gridless will be the bulk of early adopters, and use the Powerwall to time-shift align their production/consumption. I just don't see where they're going to get the rest of their power.

Oh and I still disagree on the roof surface thing. I showed an example earlier, of a pretty average installation. It is not THAT huge. Of course it depends on your roof... Sky scrapers are going to have more problems with that, since they have comparably little roof area compared to the amount of power they need.
