Re: Using the Leaf for power in a Blackout: MY "Leaf to Home"

One of my first setups was similar to that with only four 100a 12v marine batteries. I had the setup at the front of our garage so in a pinch I could idle the VW diesel outside and jump that to the marine batteries. We had one outage that was about 3 days that I did that for and even idling the wagon it was charging the 4 marine batteries about 50 amps (125 amp alternator), so it works but not ideal.

How much of the 24 kWh battery will be available for use in this scenario?

They reserve about 2kwh, but assuming you don't want to Turtle the car in your garage, figure about 19-20kwh, minus degradation.
