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. The system significantly reduces homeowners' carbon footprint and energy costs, by automating energy flows to optimise solar energy production and battery storage capacity.
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 chose to offer an all-in-one solar energy storage solution much like the one Tesla offers in the United States.
The flagship of the intelligent Storage range, xStorage Home has been developed in partnership with power management specialist Eaton. xStorage Home stores the solar power produced, enabling hte homeowner to use it as and when they need, even when the sun's not shining.
Nissan Energy Solar's new product includes a home energy management system that will allow users to control how and when they want to use their energy.
Prices for a six-panel system start at £3,881 which is just over $5,200.
While the likes of Google, Amazon and Tesla having made similar moves in the US, Nissan is the first to grab a stake in the UK's burgeoning home energy market. "It enables United Kingdom homeowners to make significant savings on their household electricity bills, and become champions of sustainability and green technology", said Gareth. It also provides a seamless backup in the event of power outages.
