Last week, we announced that SunPower is teaming with Nissan to provide Nissan LEAF electric vehicle owners information on how a SunPower residential solar system can further reduce their carbon emissions and control the cost of charging their electric vehicles. Nissan LEAF is the world’s first and only all-electric no gas car for the mass market.
Nissan found SunPower an ideal partner because they have confidence in how we’ll work with their customers to deliver the highest efficiency, highest reliability solar systems on the market today with guaranteed performance.
SunPower has contributed content to the Nissan LEAF website describing how solar power systems convert sunlight into clean, renewable power for use in the home, including for charging electric vehicles. Site visitors can also request a free home solar assessment from a local SunPower dealer.
Take a look at the content we’ve provided on the Nissan website.
Solar power is a reliable, cost-effective technology for homeowners and EV drivers today. For example, a 2.5-kilowatt SunPower rooftop solar system may offset the power required to drive a LEAF about 10,000 miles a year. I power my own 100% electric Nissan LEAF with a SunPower system, eliminating trips to the gas station while significantly reducing my electricity bill.
I am looking forward to a long partnership with Nissan. If you have any questions about our collaboration with Nissan, feel free to ask them here.
