Local fire caused PGE to cut the power - well I think a transformer blew up in the heat and started it but… power has been out since yesterday at 2PM.

Not an elegant solution but the Rivian is powering my fridge, router and hot water heater.

Nice ... too bad RIVIAN doesn't have 240V outlets at higher amperage ... you could likely power significantly more of your house. This is a big miss on RIVIAN's part vs the F150 Lightning.

Oh, man. I’m thinking ‘first’ because of lightning/campfire/ecoterror but no, just the typical, seasonal PG&E transformer explosion…

How's the battery holding up?
Great. Power company keeps delaying when power is coming back on. Truck has been connected to house for 12+ hours at this point. Range is at 128 miles - will update in the am.

Do you recall what the range or percentage was when you first plugged in?
