Billions in Energy Savings

As a result, the possibility of powering your home using this technology isn’t that far-fetched. Recently, Renault conducted a study found that a small deployment of electric cars could power entire homes.

Ultimately, this would cut down on the need for power plants and additional grid storage applications.

Renault found this practice could save countries billions in energy costs. Summarily, the study found the 4 European countries involved would each save $1.5 billion annually.

The Auto Industry Reinvents Itself

As electric vehicles become more popular, this vision of a clean energy future doesn’t seem so crazy.

After all, most of the world’s largest automakers have announced EV plans. Volkswagen has even claimed that failing to go electric would spell financial ruin for any auto giant.

Evidently, it’s likely that General Motors or Tesla could power your home in the not-too-distant future.
