Announcing our new "CLUBS" section where you can join or create a Rivian club or group! You can use this new feature to conveniently plan and discuss local events, gatherings or other club/group related topics.
So we encourage you to join (or start) special-interest and regional-based Rivian clubs at: https://www.rivianforums.com/forum/group-categories/clubs-groups.1/
From what I understand, Rivian has given us a promissory note that the hardware will support bidirectional charging and that the software will be changed and boxes will be available once a National standard is agreed upon. So I do not believe the software currently supports Quasar or any other bidirectional charging. Is there any progress regarding the National standard? Let’s hope Rivian does not pull a tank turn on this issue.Will the Rivian R1T work with this Wall Box bi-directional charger?

Hope you are correct. I just want to get V2H before the next hurricane hits me!https://enphase.com/ev-chargers/bidirectional
This is the one I'm waiting for as my solar is Enphase and I already have all of the other hardware waiting for it to plug into. But I expect to be paying a premium price being Enphase. It should still be cheaper than their options for 10 kWh of home batteries though. I asked my installer if they had pricing on their next gen 5P batteries. She didn't, but said she recommended waiting for any option to add to or upgrade my current system since they just got back from an installers conference and it was sounding like we would be seeing some pretty dramatic price decreases across the board in the very near future.
Forgot to add. If you look at any photos of the lvl 2 chargers at Rivian's service centers, the majority of them are Clipper Creeks. Enphase bought Clipper Creek a year or two ago and eventually replaced the logo. So my optimistic mind says that Rivian/Clipper Creek-Enphase have at least some level of prior business transaction/relationship, so the chances of making sure Rivians are supported from the launch of Enphase's V2H product might be just a little better.
The person was asking a simple question. Of course some of us get into the weeds, but I was trying to give him a simple answer. “Bi-Directional Charging.” We can all speculate, but the answer is no, the vehicle does not provide V2H or V2G or whatever power. TODAY. Maybe tomorrow, hopefully.Are you speaking from experience with a product that follows the CCS specification or just speculating?
All VtoH is going to be expensive as they are required to have grid cutoff so during an outage it is not sending power to the grid endangering workers.Fords implementation of V2H is very expensive and complex to install. I would like to see Rivian be able to implement something for V2H. We have two Rivians and it would be super useful to be able to tap that energy to keep lights on and food from spoiling during a power outage. I would also like to be able to run our entire TT off the truck when we don't have a camp site with shore power.
1500w is ok but more capabilities would be really really nice.
At the time of production, ALL Launch R1T and R1s were built with the hardware required for ANY Bi-directional charging. As mentioned above it's a simple OTA that will allow it to happen. With that said any Bi-directional charger (Ie Wall box, Enphase, Sunrun) will work with the existing architecture of the trucksThe person was asking a simple question.
