Use a Prius as Aux. A/C Power Generator Answered
We saw a story about someone that claims to have hooked up their Prius' electric motor batteries, through a AC Converter of some type, that converts the 200+ DC volts in the Prius main batteries into 240 (or 110?) AC power that can be feed into your house.

Reading it here vs. having someone really "tell all" about doing this for real, including the sources for the converters, etc. is what is missing.
We have occasional power outages and our house gets cold in Washington State. Using our Prius' ability to self-regulate it's batteries seems like a great idea on getting more value out of this car.
Come on your tinkering experts.... show us how to really do this.
