Harry, if the 1500W, 60H/120V inverter is still in the design, I think I could live with that, as long as the whole 60KWH (in my case) battery is available to that inverter. That amount of power could run my fireplace fan and refrigerator for days and days during a mid-winter power outage, my biggest concern. But I’d rather be able to use the V2H capabilities of the CCS connector, combined with a combo level 2 charging/V2H system such as the Dcbel so I could operate my central heat pump and air exchanger. Pulling the battery down no lower than 20% would still give me 4-5 days of power and keep the whole house warm. As long as I could manage without hot water and an electric stove or microwave, that’s dandy.
A back up generator, or a solar array and battery bank that would accomplish the same task would approach $10K at a minimum.
