VEHICLE TO GRID
EVFI is one of the original pioneers of the Vehicle-to-Grid technology. Also known as V2G, the technology makes use of the energy stored in the batteries of your fleet of CONDOR electric trucks.
Each truck stores 50kWh of energy. A fleet of CONDOR trucks may provide as much as 1 Megawatt-hour of energy that can be used to power a system inverter. That unit can provide 220-volt electricity to your microgrid, which will keep your essential oprations going, even when the rest of the world is in the dark.
When the CONDOR electric trucks are connected in parallel to the Microgrid Inverter, the energy stored in each truck can be utilized to:
- Restore essential services
- Offset peak-demand costs

Vehicle-to-Grid is an emerging technology that shows promise in two main areas.
Peak Power Support During Peak Power demand periods when electrical costs are at their highest, EVFI vehicles can cut your energy costs by supplying energy collected at cheaper rates behind your local power meter. This could mean thousands of dollars in savings each month for some applications. Smart Grid Technology can help you optimize your power management program to reduce loads on the public grid, saving billions in grid upgrades over time.
Uninterruptible Power Supply You may already have a small one for your computer to keep it going during a brief power outage. 25 EVFI trucks can store up to a megawatt-hour of electrical energy that, when connected to your grid, could keep your essential services operating for hours or days when the power grid goes out.
The Department of Defense is slowly funding a Vehicle to Grid pilot program to protect and support the power supplies of 6 military installations in the US, with the EVFI Condor. There is almost no such thing as a non-tactical installation anymore. All military installations are now tactical; therefore, V2G Technology has been called “mission essential” to ensure readiness. EVFI is at the forefront of this technology.
