U.S. Air Force to test vehicle-to-grid technology

Deployed at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo, California, the fleet is said to be the largest vehicle-to-grid charging project in the United States, and the first all plug-in fleet used by the Department of Defense.

The project includes federal, state and private partners, including California’s energy providers and regulators, with a view to using the vehicles as a low cost mobile power source, allowing the base to keep functioning during electrical blackouts.
