In the event of a power cut the system will shut down, this is because linesmen could be working on the house. A house isolater switch would need to be installed (optional extra), then you would only power your own house. This requires a permit ( safety concerns) and depending on local government usually needs to be done by a registered electrician.Great idea, but I always assumed that an owner would be able to toggle whether he wanted his vehicle as part of the V2G system using the same charging port. I guess this could extend to instances in which there is a power outage, then the charge stored in the vehicle would be used to maintain power in his/her own home, as opposed to the whole grid (I would hate to power the whole neighborhood for 5 minutes, instead of my own home all day).
I think the home charging unit would contain all those power handling algorythms, and the charging port would allow current to flow both ways.
I guess what I was thinking was that you'd have to leave the car running in your driveway to power your house.Ned23
1. I assumed I would be doing the driving, so if I am not home anymore what do I care? just kidding. Stay at home with family or go bowling? Tough choice.
Yeah, it happens all the time. People forget to turn the car off or whatever.2. It never occured to me someone would run the car inside.
