Watch How Ford Lightning's Intelligent Backup Power System Works In A Real Home

I purchased and installed Ford’s Intelligent Backup Power system at my home and will show you the entire setup as well as explain how it works in this video. As far as I know, this is the very first video showing the system working in a customer’s house. This system allows Lightningowners to use their truck to power their home during a power outage.

The system was installed by my channel sponsor, Qmerit, North America’s leading provider of installation services for EV charging, home energy storage, and other electrification technologies. See how Qmerit is making the energy transition easy for home and business owners:
