Delaware Town First to Implement V2G Electric Car Charging
This month, the City of Newark, Delaware became the first electric utility in the US to use a car to store and provide power for the local electric grid.
The vehicle, which runs on electricity alone, is specifically designed to store energy and improve grid reliability. University of Delaware researchers helped develop the concept, called Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G). With the City of Newark's approval, the UD team is now conducting V2G testing at two outlets within the City's service territory.
Cities including San Francisco and Austin, TX have seriously considered the idea, but Newark (population: 30,000) is the first to officially put it into action.
