David Poz is a perhaps a trendsetter in that fashion because he’s using one to build his own energy storage system at home. His goal is to eventually integrate the Volt’s battery with his home’s solar panels for complete off-the-grid power.
Poz found the battery at a scrapyard and yanked it from a second-generation Volt for $2,033. The video above is simply the first part of the series and shows Poz removing the battery management system cover to take some voltage measurements. He admits he’s never undertaken a project quite like it, so it should make for an interesting series.
