What is V2G Charging?

Vehicle-to-grid charging technology allows owners to sell electricity, that their car has generated, back to the National Grid during times of high demand. V2G is based on using car batteries as energy storage devices. Energy providers will then pay customers a small fee per kWh of electricity returned to the grid.
