GM Energy has rolled out a groundbreaking suite of products. The Ultium Home range bridges the gap between electric vehicles (EVs) and residential energy management systems.

Customers gain enhanced control over their energy usage through a user-friendly interface and integration with GM vehicle brand apps. This technology is known as vehicle-to-home (V2H) bidirectional charging. It allows for the transfer of power from compatible GM EVs to equipped homes. It offers a lifeline during weather-related outages and bolsters grid resiliency.

GM Energy’s product suite offers a diverse range of bundle options tailored to individual energy needs, budgets, and preferences. Installation assistance is provided in collaboration with Qmerit.

The initial product bundle includes all the necessary equipment to facilitate energy transfer between EVs and homes. Future offerings, such as stationary energy storage and solar integration, promise to expand customers’ energy management capabilities even further.

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV First-Edition RST leads the charge as the first vehicle to feature V2H bidirectional charging technology. Plans to extend this innovation across GM’s Ultium-based EV lineup by 2026 are underway.

Wade Sheffer, Vice President of GM Energy, commented:

“GM Energy is committed to making the transition to an all-electric lifestyle an even more compelling option by simplifying all aspects of personal energy management.

With the introduction of these new offerings, it has never been easier for our customers to access the expanded benefits of a holistic EV ecosystem, helping to mitigate the impacts of power outages and having the ability to offset certain energy costs over time.”

These offerings represent a significant stride towards democratising energy management. They promote the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, paving the way for a more sustainable future.
