General Motors (GM) is unleashing a groundbreaking innovation that could forever change the way we view electric vehicles (EVs). Imagine your trusty Chevrolet Silverado EV becoming more than just a means of transportation—it becomes your lifeline during power outages, thanks to GM’s Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) bidirectional charging technology.

Here’s the scenario: a fierce storm hits your neighborhood, knocking out the power grid and plunging your home into darkness. But fear not! With GM’s V2H bundles, your Silverado EV transforms into a reliable emergency generator, powering up essential appliances and keeping your family safe and comfortable.

But GM isn’t stopping there. They’re also rolling out additional options, like solar panels and energy storage solutions, to help you harness the sun’s power and stay powered up even when the grid is down.

Managing the transfer of power is easy, thanks to GM’s user-friendly mobile apps. With just a few taps on your smartphone, you can monitor your EV’s battery level and decide which appliances to prioritize during an outage.

And here’s the best part: this technology isn’t just for the privileged few. GM plans to make V2H capability available across all Ultium-based EVs by 2026, ensuring that more drivers than ever can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing their vehicle doubles as a reliable backup power source.

But GM isn’t the only player in the game. Ford, Hyundai, and Kia offer similar products for their EVs and hybrid vehicles. However, with GM’s reputation for innovation and reliability, it’s clear they’re leading the charge when it comes to turning EVs into home generators.

As EV technology continues to evolve, GM is committed to enhancing the overall ownership experience by offering new ways for customers to unlock additional value and embrace an all-electric future.

GM Energy, a part of GM’s expanding product ecosystem, is introducing V2H technology for residential customers. This technology allows compatible GM EVs to power properly equipped homes, mitigating the negative impacts of weather-related outages and integrating with future clean energy products.

GM Energy offers various bundle options to meet specific energy needs, budgets, and preferences, all conveniently available online. Customers can connect with GM Energy representatives, who can assist with installation through preferred installers and guide them through the process.

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV RST First Edition is the first vehicle in GM’s lineup to be compatible with V2H technology. By 2026, V2H capability will be extended to all Ultium-based EVs.

Customers who have questions can visit GM Energy Live, where product specialists can help provide more information and showcase GM Energy’s solutions through an immersive digital experience.

With GM’s V2H technology, your EV becomes more than just a mode of transportation – it becomes your home’s secret superpower, ready to keep you powered up when you need it most.
