NISSAN has launched Nissan Energy Solar — the all-in-one solution combining world-class residential solar panels with energy storage systems 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.
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 said: “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 allows 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**. For more information www.nissanenergysolar.com
