V2H (Vehicle-to-Home) is a system that enables the transfer of electricity from an electric vehicle (EV) to a home or building. Essentially, V2H allows the EV to serve as a backup power source during a power outage or emergency situation.
When an EV is connected to a V2H system, the electricity stored in the EV's battery can be used to power the home or building, either partially or entirely, depending on the size of the battery and the power requirements of the building. In addition, the system can be programmed to prioritize certain appliances or areas of the building in the event of a power outage.
V2H systems have the potential to be useful for both homeowners and businesses, especially in areas prone to power outages or natural disasters. They can also help reduce energy costs by allowing homeowners to use their EV's battery to store excess energy from renewable sources like solar panels, and then use that energy to power their homes during peak hours when electricity prices are higher.
