Re: 2017 Leaf to offer V2G: Thoughts?

Bidirectional charging station costs more than regular charging station. Latter costs tens of thousands, per one V2x connection.
Much much much more than "half a dozen of powerwalls".
Short range EVs <30kWh -- Medium range: 30-60kWh -- Long range: >60kWh
Charging: Trickle <3kW -- Normal 3-22kW -- Fast 50-100kW -- Supercharging >100kW

Yea sure. There are batteries coming lasting billion miles and also solar freakin roadways too.

Do you know how much Nissan Leaf 16A onboard AC-DC charger costs?
Can you estimate, how much offboard DC-AC inverter costs? And how much power does it handle :lol:

There are several initiatives that will likely support V2X concepts at some time in the future. Nuvve is one of the leaders of aggregation software and has also supported limited hardware implementations. If EV proliferation EVer happens, the energy storage potential is simply too great to ignore (for grid stabilization, home/infrastructure resilience, business monetization, etc, etc.)
