GM Energy Offers 3 Bundle Options for Ultium Home

GM Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Motors, has rolled out its initial retail offerings to enable customers to leverage vehicle-to-home (V2H) bidirectional charging technology, stationary storage, and additional energy management products.

The Ultium Home product offerings will be the first solutions to be made available to residential customers through GM Energy, and are designed to provide greater energy independence, resiliency and value, enabling the use of backup power for essential home needs during times when energy is unavailable from the grid.

“As GM Energy’s ecosystem of connected products and services continues to expand, we’re excited to provide customers with options for greater energy management beyond the vehicle,” said Wade Sheffer, Vice President, GM Energy. “Our initial Ultium Home offerings represent an opportunity for customers to take greater control over their personal energy independence and resiliency.”

The initial suite of Ultium Home products will be offered through unique bundle options, providing customers with the ability to select solutions that align with their energy needs and budget.
