Electric V2G (Vehicle to Grid): Nissan Leaf vs Tesla

Tesla's big battery in South Australia is a 'complete waste of resources,' claims Nissan

"The Nissan executive noted that the Leaf’s V2G system has the potential to help homeowners save money, especially if the vehicle charges through a rooftop solar system during the day, and uses its stored energy to power appliances and lights at night...
While V2G technology has a lot of potential that even Tesla CEO Elon Musk recognizes, the Nissan executive’s casual dismissal of the 100MW/129MWh Hornsdale Power Reserve in South Australia seems misinformed at best. Since coming online, after all, the Powerpack farm, whose size is equal to around 2,500 40 kWh Nissan Leafs, has seen widespread acclaim for its speed and sophistication."

Tesla may revisit vehicle-to-grid (V2G) bi-directional charging solution
