Meanwhile, Ford is developing the next level of bidirectional charging, Gorman said, called Intelligent Power. That feature will go beyond backup power to allow the same system to optimize charging costs. The truck will be able to target and capture energy from a lower-cost power source, such as solar panels, and then return it to the house during peak use times when utility costs are highest.

This is really cool, this is the future forward of EV's. This will be the death of the powerwall.

except when you have the EV away from home and your power goes out. There's still some value to a backup source that is always at home.
If I am not at home, and there is no power, what is the problem? :p

The butchered side of beef and hog in my freezer would appreciate not being reanimated undead due to freezers losing their cool.
That works if you have an automatic generator. We don't. So if no one is home, no one starts the generator.

Sure, but I don't have a powerwall now, just a generator. So the Lightning will be a step up.
