    You could do a bit of a gorilla V2G setup I guess. I was considering this for a while to find a suitable grid interactive inverter that I could hook up to my Nissan Leafs 12V battery since that gets charged by the main battery, and I've used it before to power my refrigerator all day with a Harbor Freight 120V inverter. The trick is I guess to find a 240V split phase inverter that takes a 12V input that is grid interactive.

    Enphase micro inverters should work (my PV system alteady uses them), but you would also need a DC to DC converter to step up the 12V to at least 24V I think.

    I'd also recommend checking your insurance policy. In case of a mishap it would be good to know you're covered. :smile:

    It wouldn't be hard to connect an EV's battery to a solar inverter. V2G is not magic, just of the shelf parts.

    Perhaps but there are considerations such as the additional wear/tear on the battery.

    A one hour OhmHour, would be the wear and tear of driving 10 miles, without the drivetrain wear and tear.
