In the face of prolonged blackouts caused by severe weather conditions in South-east Queensland, one innovative family has found a resourceful solution to keep their household running smoothly.

By harnessing the power of their electric vehicle (EV), this forward-thinking household has managed to keep essential appliances and devices operational during these extended power outages.

When a powerful storm struck the region, leaving thousands without electricity for an extended period, the Smith family realized they could tap into their electric vehicle’s battery to power their home.

Equipped with a power inverter and a suitable adapter, the family successfully connected their EV to key appliances such as refrigerators, lights, and heating systems.

This ingenious approach allowed them to maintain a semblance of normalcy during the blackout, ensuring the safety and comfort of their family.

As climate change continues to intensify extreme weather events, innovative solutions like the Smith family’s EV-powered home could become increasingly vital for those affected by power outages.

By utilising the stored energy in their electric vehicle, the Smiths not only saved on electricity bills but also reduced their carbon footprint.
