From ice storms and downed trees to blackouts, having access to backup power is essential in BC. The 2022 F-150 Lightning, which is coming to Skaha Ford next spring, is an excellent solution. When this all-electric truck isn’t hauling tools and materials, it can be used as the ultimate power source to keep your home powered and your family safe.
With the available 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro and home management system, the 2022 F-150 Lightning can unload 9.6 kilowatts of power in the event of an outage. When equipped with the truck’s extended-range battery, that’s enough power to last three full days in continuous use or up to 10 days when rationed. When the outage is over, the truck automatically reverts to battery charging mode, so the Lighting is ready for your commute or available to power equipment at the job site.
In the future, Ford is planning to unveil Intelligent Power, which can use the F-150 Lightning to power homes during high-cost, peak-energy hours while taking advantage of low-cost overnight charging rates. This will not only help BC homeowners save on electricity costs, but it will alleviate pressure on the grid during high peak usage times.
