Duke Energy to help power the grid with Ford’s new F-150
In a recent press release, Duke Energy shared they are teaming up with Ford to develop a pilot program to test the performance of Vehicle to Grid (V2G) technology. This new technology is just one of many innovative efforts Duke is using to reduce carbon emissions and increase renewable energy sources.
According to the announcement, Duke Energy customers in the Carolinas can join in the new V2G program and lease the new Ford F-150 Lightning, a fully electric truck with high capacity battery energy storage, and receive reduced lease payments. In exchange, they will agree to provide energy back to the grid during peak demand seasons.
This new technology has the potential to reduce carbon emissions and provide necessary backup storage for the grid. Click below to learn more.
