GM Partners with Utility Company to Charge Homes with Cars
March 9, 2022—General Motors has partnered with a California company to launch a pilot program that will use the automaker's vehicles as sources of power for homes.
According to a report from The Detroit News, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. on Tuesday said it will use GM vehicles as on-demand power sources for homes in the company's service area. The company will use vehicles that have "bidirectional charging technology that can help safely power the essential needs of a properly equipped home."
Per the report, the companies expect to test the first vehicle-to-home charge this summer and hope to scale the pilot project up for "larger customer trials" by the end of this year.
