1st Vehicle-to-Grid System on NYC Grid Launches

The first vehicle-to-grid system on NYC’s electricity grid launched this week. The system comes from a collaboration between Revel rideshare, Fermata Energy, and NineDot Energy. Revel’s rideshare system includes only fully electric cars. However, Tesla vehicles are not set up for vehicle-to-grid (V2G) service, so it’s just the rideshare network’s Nissan LEAFs that will be sending electricity from their batteries back into Con Edison’s grid as needed. The revenue from this program will help Revel to pay off the cost of its EVs sooner. It will also help ConEdison balance the grid and avoid grid blackouts or brownouts in, for example, the growing heatwaves hitting the city.
