Auto company Nissan is offering home owners a reliable source of renewable energy collected through rechargeable home batteries in a system called xStorage. The unit attaches onto the wall of the home and provides dwellers with 12 Nissan Leaf batteries that can be recharged using solar energy.
The xStorage turns solar energy into a much more accessible commodity that can be stored up and easily accessed for a variety of technological and electric uses. The system can access both conventional energy sources as well as solar, allowing consumers with the option of switching between the two depending on time of day, accessibility and cost.
The xStorage unit can also be controlled via an accompanying smartphone app, and is designed for longterm. The integration of the xStorage unit directly into the home's control system ensures that environmentally friendly energy is a top priority.
