Has anyone installed a pad mounted standby Generac with ATS with a Tesla Powerwall 2 with Gateway which will operate independently of each other? In other words the Generac runs during the day to power heavy loads including charging the Powerwall 2 and then you manually shut down the Generac and hand off to the Powerwall 2 the light overnight loads. Next day cycle repeats.

Benefits would be no nighttime noise and greatly reduced fuel consumption especially when fuel is scarce. Let's assume money for installation is no object here....lol.

If so, could you share a wire diagram with both a whole house ATS and a partial critical loads ATS? Thanks.

I guess I'll go over to the Tesla forum and see if anyone there has done this.

My site inspection said I needed 6 powerwall's to run my house and candidly said my house was larger than was practical for the damn things. But I might do solar and part of me says why not order it before they go out of business. The state I'm in offers no incentive to do solar and protects the utility company to the point that there's very little incentive to go solar.

I'll take that any day over a state that taxes the rest of us to subsidize solar and other so-called "renewable" energy systems for a select few.
If solar, wind, or any other energy source can compete on it's own, fine, but the state has no business using tax dollars to promote any alternative energy source.

I agree with that as long as the coal, gas and oil interests do not get any more subsidies than they already receive right now.  What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

It appears that the transition is going to be painful for certain vested carbon interests and they will be the ones going to the state and federal governments for special tax treatment far in excess than renewables will ever see.
