How To Power Your House In an Emergency From Your Electric Car

Thanks primarily to Tesla and its PowerWall consumer energy storage product — not to mention the many other grid-tied and off-grid energy storage products now available, there are more people than ever before who can keep their houses powered when there’s a brownout or power cut.
But not everyone can afford to put thousands of dollars of solar panels on their roof or battery packs in their garage, meaning that when the power goes out, they’re at the mercy of the local utility company.
That is, unless you happen to own pretty much any electric car on the market today. Because with one of those, a little time, and a few hundred in cash, you can keep your refrigerator running, power some low-power lights, and yes, even edit a YouTube show.
