New technology, while generally welcomed by the public at large, must be both user-friendly and reliable to achieve lasting market acceptance. Nissan has endeavored to avoid these pitfalls as it launches the Nissan Energy Solar system, while empowering (no pun intended) homeowners through their interactive home energy management system.
Homeowners will be able to control how and when they want to use “their” energy in real time. Over time and with wider adoption by homeowners, the entire energy system will function with greater efficiency, be less wasteful, and will be more sustainable overall. This short video from Aban Tech explains the concept in a nutshell.
Besides reducing household energy costs, homeowners will find that Nissan Energy Solar will also lighten their carbon footprint. All of these benefits will be achieved through the automation of energy flows, optimal utilization of solar production peaks, and through enhanced electric battery storage capacities. The initial cost of implementing Nissan Energy Solar solution begins at £3,881 or just over $5,400 per home. (via CleanTechnica and Newsroom Nissan Europe)
