Jamie LaReau writes "GM announced a collaboration with Pacific Gas and Electric Company. The two will test the use of GM's EVs as on-demand power sources for homes in PG&E’s service area in California."
PG&E, which is a utility company that serves 16 million people across Northern and central California, is taking the lead in the pilot, but GM said the intention is to make this capability national as soon as possible.
“GM’s collaboration with PG&E further expands our electrification strategy, demonstrating our EVs as reliable mobile sources of power," GM CEO Mary Barra said in a statement. "Our teams are working to rapidly scale this pilot and bring bidirectional charging technology to our customers." For Jamie LaReau's full story click here
