Nissan launches Energy Solar service and products

17 May 2018

Nissan has been a player in the electric auto market for a long time and now after launching its revamped Leaf electric vehicle, the company has made a decision to offer an all-in-one solar energy storage solution much like the one Tesla offers in the United States.

The system, dubbed Nissan Energy Solar, will allow users to generate their own electricity from solar panels, which can then be stored in a battery and later used to charge EVs.

Nissan has accelerated its drive into the electricity sector with the roll out of its first home energy system without the backing of a traditional utility.

Customers will be given the choice to select energy storage systems that use new batteries or recycled batteries from Nissan's Leaf electric cars. The latter will maximize the use of recyclable materials for a more sustainable option.

"It enables United Kingdom homeowners to make significant savings on their household electricity bills, and become champions of sustainability and green technology".

Nissan also has plans to use the Leaf as an extra energy source for houses if needed, as when they are parked and charging the electric hatchback, power could be diverted back into the house or National Grid to help reduce strain on the network.

And with the Nissan Leaf going from strength to strength as the world's best selling electric vehicle, and the eNV200 electric van also in the offering, by inserting themselves into the power supply business it could help Nissan carve out their own corner of the market.
