Keeping the lights on just got easier!
When the lights go out, what do most people do? Probably suffer miserably, OR figure out some way to keep the power on. This naturally requires some sort of power backup; either a generator that burns diesel or propane, or a large battery pack. In the case of this video shared by the Technically Jeff YouTube channel, he is using a large battery pack... from his Kia EV6.
Granted, even if you have an EV sitting in the driveway that doesn't mean you can simply plug it into the house and keep the lights on. As Jeff explains, he was able to purchase a Nature's Generator Power Transfer Kit that will allow him to disconnect grid power (to prevent his Kia EV6 from powering the neighborhood or cause potential harm to line workers), and run household appliances off of the power from his car. Not every EV has bi-directional capability, as he explains, but vehicles on the E-GMP platform from Hyundai Motor Group, and a few others (ie. Ford Lighting, etc.) as well have built in capability to power other things... including your home!
What do you think? Is this something that we will be seeing more of in the future?
