Another electric car or truck is not amazing. Ford’s F-150 line being updated to add electric options is not surprising. The ability to provide electricity back into your house in a power outage, is revolutionary. The idea that it would be able to balance household needs for up to 10 days if you’re careful, is a game changer. Are you really having so many power outages that this is an important need? Probably not, unless you’re in Texas, who had major power issues during that cold snap a few months back. Ford’s innovative spirit might be back!

Intelligent Backup Power can send juice from the Lightning’s battery into your home’s electrical system in a blackout, no extension cords required.
