A Prius Or Other EV, plus THIS, could power your home through a blackout

ome new EVs boast the ability to serve as an emergency home power source. But what if you could do the same with your existing hybrid?

PlugOut Power has been selling such hardware for nearly 10 years, and it claims to have been the first commercial aftermarket high-voltage inverter that provided vehicle-to-load (V2L) or vehicle-to-home (V2H). Under its previous name ConVerdant Vehicles LLC, the company has offered kits that turn a Toyota Prius into an emergency generator.

Now PlugOut Power has an updated version it claims is compatible with most Toyota and Lexus hybrids and plug-in hybrids.
