Nissan Electric Vehicles to Use Solar Power

In a collaboration announced Monday, Nissan North America (NNA) and SunPower Corp. will team up to help Nissan LEAF electric vehicle owners learn how a residential solar power system from SunPower can reduce their carbon emissions and control the cost of charging their electric vehicles.

The two companies are offering new online content, including a video tutorial that describes how solar power systems convert sunlight into clean, renewable power for use in the home and for charging electric vehicles.

Visitors to the site will be able to request a free home solar assessment from a local SunPower dealer.

“Nissan LEAF owners are conscientious about their energy use, and it makes sense for them to understand how they can offset the power that their all-electric LEAF requires with clean, renewable solar power generated from their own rooftop,” said Brendan Jones, director, Nissan LEAF marketing and sales strategy, NNA.

“SunPower is the leading manufacturer and installer of residential solar power systems in the United States. A 2.5-kilowatt SunPower rooftop solar system may offset the power required to drive a LEAF about 10,000 miles a year.”

“Solar power is a reliable, cost-effective technology for homeowners today,” said SunPower president and CEO Tom Werner. “High efficiency SunPower systems are guaranteed to perform over the long term, maximizing the power generated and the monthly savings. I power my own 100 percent electric Nissan LEAF with a SunPower system, eliminating trips to the gas station while significantly reducing my electricity bill.”
