I feel like the guy in this video reading this forum some times:
I feel like I am talking to my kids, reading this forum sometimes.
I don't want off shore drilling here either as GA and SC are in the middle of hurricane alley. By the way- what is the status of the nuclear plant in SC...? And GA has same issues with costs of reactors as SC...
2021 F150 to the rescue
Wait, are they calling an “electric generator” the engine in the truck?
It has an onboard electric generator
I Powered My House with the Ford F-150 Hybrid
Number 1 selling truck for a reason
Dead. Sold the project off. Not sure if its getting rebooted or what yet, but pretty much got our rate decreases, put SCANA out of business, crooked folks in Jail.
I can plug shit into my superduty, do I call it a generator now?
You can call it whatever the hell you want. Im just glad I survived the great winter freeze of 2021.
It is. But you can buy a $100 standalone kit and it's also considered a generator. Like anything else though, there are levels to it.
The optional 7.2-kW version on the hybrid will smoke yours. Unlike the lesser versions, it offers four 120-volt, 20-amp outlets and one twist-lock NEMA L6-20 240-volt, 30-amp outlet and can provide up to 7,200 watts of electricity. That’s enough to power most people’s home fridge, freezer, computers, TVs, etc. Most RVs only bother with a generator in the 3,000-4,000-watt range. Portable power built into a truck that can deliver electricity to remote construction locations, enough to power all the tools necessary for a team of builders to actually frame a house.
And 35 hours of power... under absolute max load. 60-80 hours is what many saw during the storm.
A Honda 7000 failed in a comparison against the hybrid f150 and that's a $4500 generator.
It's totally different than the normal plug in 12v inverter you have, in the bed of the truck. It uses the trucks hybrid battery to store the energy. And the pickup will start when it gets low.
I want one, but my wife would kill me. lol
Appreciate the real simple version of this.
I was curious how these dudes were going 2-3 days of power and only using quarter tanks of full.
I didn’t consider the battery in the hybrids being the reason they lasted so long.
I know the power option is available on gas motors as well. Am I correct in assuming that the vehicle has to be running in order to provide the electricity in gas models with this option.
Looks like a neat option.
Clipped this from an article I read.
The F-150 ran everything simultaneously, and could have handled more. I know this because the generator display on the 12-inch dash screen shows exactly how much power you're demanding at any given moment. My various gadgets devoured 3200 watts, which is way beyond the draw that would have caused my Honda to blow its circuit breaker. This is more than half of the power available to 120-volts, but less than half of the system capacity if I were running my house off the 240-volt feed. In fact, the truck seemed bored with this assignment. Occasionally, the V-6 would shut down and leave the truck's 1.5-kWh lithium battery to run the show, resulting in the quietest 7.2-kW generator you'll ever hear. There's a muted whirr from beneath the truck, and that's it.
Cabs pretty roomy. How long would you need to sleep in it until she forgave you? I bet you could make it 2-3 weeks.
It is better to ask for forgiveness than permission
The new F150 with that option looks very attractive that’s for sure. Looks to provide better output than the generator I have in my garage lol
Because.........Progressives say so. :-|
