What is Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) technology, and how does it work?

Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) technology allows your electric vehicle to act as a mobile power bank for your home. By connecting your EV to your home energy system, you can use the energy stored in the vehicle's battery to power household appliances during peak hours or outages. This smart integration helps manage energy costs and helps offer energy availability during emergencies. 

Can I use my EV to power my home during a blackout?

Yes, one of the benefits of V2H technology is its ability to supply electricity to your home during power outages. By storing energy when the grid is operational and distributing it when needed, your EV can provide a seamless power supply to help keep essential appliances running, to offer added comfort and safety during unexpected blackouts. With a GM Energy PowerShift Charger and GM Energy V2H Enablement Kit, you will be able to select which equipment in your home you would like to keep running, such as lights, TV, refrigerator, cable/Wi-Fi®, other consumer electronics and more.

What do I need to set up Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) functionality in my home?

To enable V2H functionality, you'll need a GM Energy PowerShift Charger and GM Energy V2H Enablement Kit to move energy between your EV and your home.
