Nissan has launched Energy Solar in the UK, enabling customers to integrate solar panels, battery storage and a home energy management system into their homes.
The product packages starts at £3,881 and Nissan claims home owners could benefit from a reduction in household electricity bills of up to 66%. They are also able to generate, store and manage energy for use overnight - even on overcast or rainy days – and charge rheir Nissan electric vehicles.
Gareth Dunsmore, Nissan Europe electric vehicle director, said: “Nissan Energy Solar is a complete system for home energy generation, management and storage. It enables UK homeowners to make significant savings on their household electricity bills, and become champions of sustainability and green technology.
“More than 880,000 people in the UK already use solar panels and this fully integrated solution brings a fresh opportunity to grow this number exponentially over the coming years.”
UK customers have the choice to select energy storage systems that use either new or second life batteries from Nissan electric vehicles, maximising the use of recyclable materials.
The home energy management system allows users to control how and when they use their energy by automating energy flows to optimize solar energy production and battery storage capacity
The 66% savings are based on a family located in the south east, at home on average half a day and with an annual electricity demand of 4,500kWh, once a 4kWp Solar PV system and 6kWh storage system is installed.
The price of the system includes the supply and installation of a six panel solar system, home energy management system, and VAT at 5%.
Nissan will be at CCIA 2018
