You Will Lose Your Tesla Warranty If You Use It as a Stationary To Power Your House
Using your Tesla as a stationary power source will cause you to lose your warranty.
Today a lot of Tesla owners are discussing using their Tesla vehicles to power their homes or to cook a meal during freezing temperatures and power outages, like the Winter Storm Uri in Texas. If you use your Tesla as a stationary power source, you will lose your warranty.
Twitter user @Greentheonly quotes the following from Tesla's New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
“This New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover any vehicle damage or malfunction directly or indirectly caused by, due to or resulting from normal wear or deterioration, abuse, misuse, negligence, accident, improper maintenance, operation, storage or transport, including, but not limited to, any of the following: …Using the vehicle as a stationary power source.” Be careful not to lose your Tesla warranty.
To be honest I am surprised you can lose your Tesla warranty by using it as a stationary power sources. As one person commented on Reddit, I thought "you can use your Tesla to help stabilize the grid" was one of the selling points, he says he keeps hearing, right up there with "it will earn you money as you sleep as a Robotaxi."
