General Motors’ new business unit, GM Energy, will offer an initial vehicle-to-home group of products called the Ultium Home energy system for people who want a backup energy source.

The products will provide vehicle-to-home bidirectional charging technology, stationary storage and additional energy management products to residential customers through GM Energy. The products will give people more energy independence by enabling the use of an electric vehicle as backup power for essential home needs during a power outage.

“As GM Energy’s ecosystem of connected products and services continues to expand, we’re excited to provide customers with options for greater energy management beyond the vehicle,” said Wade Sheffer, vice president of GM Energy.

The Ultium Home products will be offered in bundle options so that customers can select what fits their needs and budget. But GM Energy is not releasing the cost or timeline for when all the products will go on sale, saying both will vary based on the bundle package.
