Nichicon charging for Imiev + Leaf

Post by marty11 » Sat, 25 Oct 2014, 23:49

In 2012, NICHICON and Nissan Motors launched the EV Power Station standard model (Photo 2) vehicle-to-home (V2H) system that uses an EV onboard lithium-ion battery to supply household power. This product was the world’s first V2H system that provided power to the home from an EV. This EV Power Station takes advantage of cheaper night time electricity rates to charge the EV. During the daytime hours, this power is shifted to household use. This arrangement allows a reduction in the amount of power purchased from the grid during the daytime, thereby reducing daytime electricity charges (Figure 1).

In July 2014, the system’s EV applicability was expanded to allow connectivity to Mitsubishi Motors’ i-MiEV, MINICAB-MiEV and MINICAB-MiEV TRUCK models.

Go down nearly two thirds of that page, to no. 5.

Handy perhaps for a few Mitsubishi owners?

What do you think of the product?
