I'm predicting that's the only way widespread adoption of distributed power on demand will occur (DPOD- I'm coining the term because the use of the word "virtual" for something actual is dumb. It's also why I refuse to say "open concept" when it's an open reality once constructed).

The utility (ostensibly) is responsible to deliver electricity as affordably as possible to their customers. If that means using batteries to reduce the number of peaker plants in service, then the utility will just implement that in macro. The cost and complexity go way down by centralizing the installation.

You're viewing a battery that is out and about as a lost opportunity to stabilize the grid and earn a return for the owner, and I'm viewing a battery that spends most of its time connected to the grid as bonus opportunity to stabilize the grid and return value to the owner.

That's pretty much it, plus I'm more likely to become a bicycle only micro-mobility household than you.

The FUV has more capacity than a Powerwall, and is more fun.
