SunPower selected by GM to provide backup energy to EVs

GM new logo reflects EV business

SunPower Corp. and General Motors (GM) announced a collaboration to develop a new home energy system that will enable GM electric vehicles to provide backup energy to homes.

GM also named SunPower as a preferred EV charger installation provider and its exclusive solar provider.

The home energy system and installation services are slated to be available alongside the retail launch of the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV, expected Fall 2023.

Chevrolet Silverado EV customers will be able to have their home energy system installed at the same time as their Silverado EV charger to enable vehicle-to-home (V2H) power or choose to do so at a later date.

For interested customers, SunPower and GM will assess the home’s electrical system for compatibility with bi-directional charging. Customers can also choose to purchase a SunPower solar system for their home.
