Electric vehicles can be charged at off-peak electric rates, then used to power our homes and buildings (vehicle-to-home V2H, or vehicle-to-building V2B). This reduces consumption from the grid at peak times when electric costs are higher. Electric vehicles can also temporarily power our homes when the grid has failed (e.g. due to a natural disaster).

  • 2008.04.22 - Plug-in Hybrids Power the Electrical Grid - PeakMoment - Professor Andy Frank's vision is for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) to be charged on green, renewable power from solar panels built into the roofs of our parking lots. This would allow the vehicles to be used as mobile batteries, contributing solar power back to the electrical grid when needed, thereby helping to "load balance" the demand. At home, the same vehicle batteries can help power a house (vehicle-to-house V2H), or feed energy back to the grid (vehicle-to-grid V2G).
