Of all the energy sectors, solar energy is developing most rapidly: humanity is aware of the role of alternative energy sources, of which the sun is the most powerful. Nissan was involved in this technology race with its new project Nissan Energy Solar .
The project of the automobile giant is a roof equipped with solar panels and batteries: in clear weather it accumulates energy, which then can be used on cloudy days.
Nissan Energy Solar is sold only in the UK today. For “foggy Albion”, where the number of rainy days in a year is from 110 to 200, this is more than a topical project. In the publication, developers explain that the energy in the batteries can be spent on the needs of the house, and on charging electric cars from Nissan.
Savings, which give solar roofs – about 70%. There is a know-how from Nissan about $ 5,2 thousand; buyers can save by ordering a more compact, individualized set of items. The market has an analog: solar roofs from Tesla . They will cost the buyer $ 30 thousand, plus $ 7 thousand – for the battery Tesla Powerwall . The new development of Nissan is much more attractive in price, but less energy efficient and not so elegant in design.
