Nissan Launches Home Solar Solution for UK Market
Automaker Nissan joined the ranks of Tesla and Mercedes-Benz in offering home energy storage solutions to support solar power adoption. Nissan aims to make renewable energy usage at home simpler and more affordable for UK residents – up to 66% savings in their energy bills
Nissan Energy Solar is an all-in-one solution that combines world-class residential solar panels with energy storage system to make the most of UK homes.
The solution has been designed to allow UK homeowners to reduce their energy bills and get more independence from the grid, allowing them to live more sustainably.
CleanTechnica reports that solar energy and electric vehicles are "a match made in heaven. Our own recent research (published less than one week ago) showed that 32% of EV-driving respondents in our most recent surveys on the topic also have rooftop solar power. This backs up similar findings in two previous CleanTechnica reports as well as research conducted by others in the past few years."
Traditionally, solar energy has been used to power home appliances during the day, but now with Nissan Energy Solar householders can collect and store the excess energy from their solar panels and use it during the night – even to charge their Nissan LEAF and e-NV200 - and on cloudy days.
Francisco Carranza, Managing Director, Nissan Energy, Nissan Europe says ‘Solar panels have become the world’s fastest-growing source of new energy and we’re thrilled to launch Nissan Energy Solar in the UK. Over 880,000 UK homes already have solar panels installed and they are seeing the benefits every day, from decreasing electricity bills to increasing property values.’
‘Nissan Energy Solar is just one step in supporting our commitment to investing in innovative energy solutions for a more sustainable future and intelligent way of living.’
The new product also includes a home energy management system that will allow users to control how and when they want to use their energy in real time as well as making the entire energy system more efficient and sustainable. The system reduces energy costs and carbon footprint for homeowners significantly, by automating energy flows, purposefully utilizing solar production peaks and storage capacities.
Nissan Energy Solar solution will start at £3881.
