...taken to Twitter and Reddit to share the wonders of their savior Powerwalls, or simply their seemingly heroic Teslas.

 

One such person said "My Tesla kept my family from freezing last night." In their Reddit post, Razzooz said their entire family slept in their garage, neatly tucked into their Tesla Model 3, which served as a "sleeping pod with a 75kw battery."

 

Another Redditter posted their Tesla provided "29 hours of backup power," stating how "very grateful (they are) for powerwalls during Texas rolling blackouts."

 

It's clear to see how vehicle technology is keeping certain residents in tricky situations safe, and hopefully other owners will see these posts and do the same to keep safe and warm during the blackouts.
