But if you bought a magnum power or other bidirectional V2G charger, it would work, right?
Can you send me a link to such a CHAdeMO and/or CCS based bidirectional energy converter with grid protection? I've been looking for several years for a commercial offering (that does not cost $100,000
I've found two offerings that look good:
- Not available yet, but targeting residential
The MC-V2G is actually the unit that Nissan is currently showing off, but whitelabeled
I did contact this company and got pricing. Since it's not on their website, I won't publish it, but you could reach out and talk to them. I will say its price may interest you.
I don't know if these units are purely V2G or if they can install with a transfer switch as well to provide backup power. If you could buy a 40 kWh Leaf and use it for backup power for your home in the case of an outage, it's really compelling.
I'm looking at these solutions because it'd be cheaper to buy a 40 kWh Leaf than 4 powerwalls, and if it provided backup power in the case of an outage, I'd have a backup power solution that I could also drive around. Better yet, buy a wrecked 2018 Leaf for $8k with a functioning CHADEMO port and battery, and permanently park it in your Garage. The possibilities are quite intriguing.
