The 2023 Ford F150 and the 2023 Nissan Leaf have the ability to use the EV battery as a backup source for Solar Systems when the power is out and the Solar System is not producing. Will the 2023 Ariya have this capability?

There was a comment from a Nissan engineer that said it can, but the feature is not ready yet. So perhaps in the future it can be activated.
That sounds promising. The information I got was from someone at Nissan HQ in the UK. All we know for sure is that it doesn’t do it right now. I must admit it seems odd, as the Leaf has this feature, so I really hope you’re correct and the port is bi-directional after all and V2X can be enabled in a future software update.

If you have solar on your house I would suggest just having a solar backup battery installed. We have an Enphase system and it's been great. Nigh time grid outages occur and it kicks right over without missing a beat.

We also have a system rated at about 19 kW, with Enphase microinverters and management. Outages are rare, where I live, so I can't justify the expense of a battery that will rarely, if ever be used. I do have a Leaf, and am in contact with Fermata to see about installing their V2H system, so I can use my Leaf's battery for home backup (and maybe some profit—selling back to the grid in summer at peak demand). In the meantime, we also have a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV GT, which has two 1500 W, 120 VAC outlets...
