    Seems correct. However, with a Nissan Leaf I'd never participate, I would want my Leaf charged asap.

    When you have a 85kWh Model S or in the future a 100kWh Model S you can always say: I always want a 60% SoC at least and you can use the rest to "help out" the grid.

    If I arrive at home with 10% SoC I want't the car to charge asap for multiple reasons:
    * Battery life
    * Emergencies (Going to hospital)
    * Unplanned trip to store / friend
