Can I charge my EV for free at work, and use the V2G to sell back to the grid?

Hello, I have my survey booked in for the v2g trial and I have a tech question that hopefully someone can answer :

I have a leaf e+ with 62 kWh battery with a slightly unusual use pattern I live quite near work and I would fill my car each day for free. 

 

Can I come home and take advantage of this full tank by selling it all back to grid down to around 20% which would then get me to work in morning to refill.

 

Alternatively and more importantly can I use the leaf to power my household from the full tank I have ? 

 

Thanks

Rich

Hello @Richardfi 

 

I can confirm that as part of the V2G Terms and Conditions, your export must not exceed your import via the V2G charger.

So you want to steal your companies electricity and run it back into the grid from a Nissan e+tekna ?. Don't even try it unless you want fry yourself, your car and more. Check out the output volts of the Nissans battery. I believe the output voltage is 400volts DC.

We have free charging provided by a city wide scheme , also I was meaning through the v2g charger supplied by ovo ?
