Does anyone know if a Rivian or electric vehicle can be used to power a house or the essentials during a natural disaster or when the power grid goes down? And if so, how far could you drain the battery before you case damage?
This is a question I'd like to know the answer to as well. It does seem more and more electric vehicles are offering vehicle to grid power or the equivalent. To me that makes it more worthwhile to buy an electric vehicle, to have that capability.
There is also the Wallbox device, expected to retail for about $4000, that can provide bi-directional charging that would allow an electric vehicle to power a house. Not sure if Rivian would need to do something specific to accommodate that or if it would work regardless. Still, it would be nice if the Rivian would ship with that kind of capability, or at least offer a solution less than $4000.
