Electric car as solar battery

I'm interested in using my Nissan Leaf as a battery for my solar panels ie charge car by day and use stored power in my house at night. OVO has a V2G trial running at moment, but requires switch to OVO. This would provide me with the tech to draw power from my car. I don't want to switch. Will Pure Planet be considering this option for customers?

Hi @LGR78
Welcome to the community!
Thanks for posting.
We're not quite ready to offer vehicle-to-grid, but it's definitely on our roadmap.
As a Leaf owner I'd also be interested in this. :)
We're not too far off from a smart export guarantee pilot (early 2020) so I imagine that V2G will become a thing shortly after that.
Sounds good. I'll stick with PP and see what emerges in 2020.
