GM Energy rolls out home product suite

GM Energy rolls out home product suite

This suite will help to mitigate the negative impacts of weather-related outages and integrate with future clean energy products.

GM Energy said its initial offerings for residential customers will enable the use of vehicle-to-home (V2H) bidirectional charging technology, to provide power from a compatible GM EV to a properly equipped home. The company said this will help mitigate negative impacts of weather-related outages and integrate with future clean energy products.

GM Energy said its product suite will be offered through a set of bundle options, providing residential customers with the ability to select solutions that align with their specific energy needs, budget and preferences, all online. GM Energy representatives will be on hand to connect customers with the preferred installer, Qmerit, who can help with obtaining necessary permits and connect with utilities to ensure a seamless guided experience.

At launch, GM Energy said customers will be able to purchase its V2H bundle, which includes the necessary equipment to enable the transfer of energy between a customer’s compatible EV and a properly equipped home. GM Energy will make additional residential solutions, including stationary energy storage and solar integration, available for purchase later this year.

“GM Energy is committed to making the transition to an all-electric lifestyle an even more compelling option by simplifying all aspects of personal energy management,” Wade Sheffer, vice president of GM Energy, said. “With the introduction of these new offerings, it has never been easier for our customers to access the expanded benefits of a holistic EV ecosystem, helping to mitigate the impacts of power outages and having the ability to offset certain energy costs over time.”

According to GM Energy, its products will be accessible through current GM mobile brand apps, allowing customers to manage the transfer of stored energy between applicable and connected GM Energy assets, for a fully integrated and convenient experience.

The first vehicle in GM’s portfolio of EVs to be compatible with the GM Energy home product suite is the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV First-Edition RST2, which will be equipped with V2H bidirectional charging technology. Moving forward, GM said it will continue to expand V2H bidirectional charging technology across its retail portfolio of Ultium-based EVs by model year 2026.

Pricing, installation cost and timeline for delivery for each of GM Energy’s initial product bundles will vary. Additional information about GM Energy and its ecosystem of available product and service offerings is available at gmenergy.gm.com.
