I just completed a survey from my local utility, PG&E.
We would like to ask you some questions concerning an emerging technology that PG&E is investigating.
It will soon be possible for those with electric vehicles to use their EV’s battery to power their homes directly (off-grid) for several hours or even several days, depending on the capacity of the battery.
The "expected" cost of a complete installation linking solar, grid, and vehicle pack (charge and discharge) was stated in this survey to be $6,000.
As I've mentioned before, once i have solar and a charge/discharge device, I doubt I'd still want a grid connection, but, for some reason,
that option was not on PG&E's survey...
Most people will want the grid of course, which is why I think PG&E and other utilities are taking V-to-G seriously.
