Nissan explores solar power

17 May 2018
Nissan has fast-tracked its bid to expand its presence in the electricity sector with its new roll out of home energy systems without the backing of a traditional utility.

The Japanese automotive maker has explained that the integrated system will allow energy users to generate their own solar power, which can be stored in a battery or used to charge an electric vehicle to reduce their overall energy bills by up to two-thirds regardless of which supplier they use.

The company is hoping to remain competitive in developing electric vehicles. According to a company statement, the Nissan Leaf will give the group an edge in the emerging low-carbon economy. The group will also cease selling diesel cars in Europe as part of its goal to sell one million electric vehicles a year by 2022.
