Coming down the road–Nissan Leaf to Power Homes?

by

A few weeks ago, I showed an example of the Nissan Leaf charging stations that our sister company, Linc Lighting & Electrical, is installing in California.  That’s cool.  And it’s even more exciting when we’re able to look at the whole house while we’re there, and boost the energy-efficiency to help offset the car’s electricity us.  [And the Energy Upgrade California incentives are a financial boost!] 

Looking down the street and around the corner, there may be even more interesting possibilities integrating Home/Car/Electricity.  For example, Nissan has unveiled and is testing a new system allowing the car to supply electricity to the house.  This has applications from off-peak (and lower rate) power storage to emergency back-up power.  We’ll have to wait and see how this pans out.  Roll this in with smart meters, renewable generation, and community-scale projects, and things get even more interesting.  And that is what is keeping the elves in our Energy Hub workshop busy!

Meanwhile, one thing we know for certain, focusing on efficiency first makes sense!  And at home you get to do this by making your home more comfortable, durable, and healthier.

Thanks,
Mike
