    If you have an Solar setup already what would be required for the new EV6 to participate in powering your house while plugged in.

    https://www.kia.com/uk/new-cars/ev6/

    The EV6 is equipped with vehicle-to-load function that works as a convenient,

    portable electricity supply for your daily life or leisure activities.

    EV6 supplies up to 3.6kW of electricity, so it can serve as an emergency power source for your home.

    It can also work as a portable generator when enjoying the outdoor activities.

    Think of the AC output on the EV6 to be a 3.6kw petrol generator.


    It cannot** integrate with the current solar setup. you could get a changeover switch installed or something along them lines and just plug it into the generator input but thats about it.

    The solar inverters are "grid tied" which sync with the grid frequency

    ** If you have a DIY battery, you could grab a 48V charger, and connect the car to the 48 v charger, and then charge the battery/run the grid tied inverter from the battery/48V charger.

    But then you would also need to have the EPS supply of the Storage Inverter/hybrid inverter to be connected to something.. back to the change over switch!
