Nissan Offering New Leaf Buyers In Japan Free Solar PV Installations

Nissan has begun offering buyers of the new, refreshed Leaf in Japan free installation of home solar photovoltaic (PV) systems — if they sign up for specific retail electricity plans with Ecosystem Japan.

Nissan has begun offering buyers of the new, refreshed Leaf in Japan free installation of home solar photovoltaic (PV) systems — if they sign up for specific retail electricity plans with Ecosystem Japan.

The new PR campaign is being pursued jointly by the two firms in question, with the aim being to offer adopters of the new long-range Nissan Leaf the chance to power their new cars entirely (or just partly) with solar energy.

To be more specific, the offer relates to the Jibun Denryoku (“personal electricity”) plan being offered by the utility firm Ecosystem Japan — and of course only to those who purchase the new Nissan Leaf as well. Also, the deal is mostly available to those living in the Kanto region in Japan. It involves a 20-year agreement plan (which transfers ownership of the system to the Leaf owner after that time period).

The press release provides more: “They can also get a discount on a plan called the Daytime Assist Plan. Participants are encouraged to charge their LEAFs during the day using electricity from their solar panels, or at night when demand for grid power is lower.

“Unveiled in September 2017, the new, zero-emission Nissan LEAF offers powerful acceleration, agile handling and advanced technologies such as Nissan’s ProPILOT autonomous driving technology. It embodies Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s vision for changing how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into society.”

The new promotional campaign runs through the end of March 2018 — so those interested should probably get a hurry on.
