LONDON – Nissan moves into the U.K. energy-supply market with the launch of its home solar-energy production and storage package.
It claims the Nissan Energy Solar is an all-in-one solution that combines residential solar panels with an energy-storage system to reduce U.K. homeowners’ energy bills and give them more independence from the national grid while enhancing energy sustainability.
The system allows householders to collect and store the excess energy from their solar panels and use it during the night, possibly to charge their electric vehicles, and on cloudy days.
Francisco Carranza, managing director-Nissan Energy for 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 U.K. Over 880,000 U.K. 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 prices start at £3,881 ($5,378) for a six-panel kit.
