Nissan Launches A Solar Energy Package Of Its Own

Aiming to save customers up to 66% on their energy bills, the all-in-one solution combines solar generation with an energy storage and management system for United Kingdom householders.

Nissan says that this system can deliver a reduction of up to 66 percent in household electricity bills with the ability to generate, store, and manage energy for overnight use even on rainy and overcast days when the sun isn't shining in all its glory.

Nissan's AIO solar system comes with six solar panels, an "xStorage" battery, and Nissan's "Home Energy Management" system. This maximises the use of recyclable materials, for intelligent living and a more sustainable future.

Speaking to an audience of auto industry professionals in London yesterday Gareth Dunsmore, electric vehicle director for Nissan Europe, said that the product would allow United Kingdom homeowners to make significant savings on their household bills.

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.

The vehicle maker's first independent bid to grab a stake in the burgeoning home energy market puts the company in competition with traditional utilities and tech giants including Google and Amazon. Though prices will undoubtedly differ depending on your specific home's power needs, the full AIO solution will begin at £7,635.
