    I bet the presence of a Model X will upset and confuse the Texas Automobile Dealers Association

    Will it be lawful for the launch party to explain how each Powerwall (with solar panels) can provide a Tesla with about 20 miles of free, daily driving?

    (Assuming you are charging your Powerwall during the day and your BEV the following night. Fuel prices are probably too low in Texas for that to make sense, the BEV would probably only get what the owner could not spend on other appliances such as cooking after sunset).

    We'd need a couple of Powerwall's pretty much just to cover AC in the summer during non-daylight hours. Also, 6.4kWh wouldn't get us far in terms of charging the car with a longer commute. Then there's the limit on the inverter on how fast you could actually charge... Doesn't mean it's off the table when the next gen units arrive.

    Wrt what Tesla is allowed to say and not say I believe is limited to purchasing and pricing. General product info shouldn't be a problem.
