Nissan electric car can power a house for 2 days

The Nissan Leaf electric vehicle in Japan can now send power back into a house. They say it’ll power a Japanese house for two days (which probably translates to 12 hours for power-hungry US homes.) But still. This is amazing technology. Just the things for blackouts, and for smoothing out power in the grid.

  1. Great… now if they would only make it available for direct purchase, instead as a lease. And please don’t say you can, as you simply can not. I know, I’ve looked into it. Nissan’s own site clearly shows the only pricing option is to lease, with an option to purchase after the lease ends. That at least beats Saturns EV1, where they didn’t allow purchase after the lease, and recalled/crushed all but a handful after the lease period was up. But it’s not something you can walk in, put money on the table, and drive away with. The same it true of the Volt and the Smart EV.
