UK’s Nissan Electric vehicle owners have a new opportunity of making money to look forward to in future with the help of their cars.

Nissan has projected a new concept. This concept involves the owners of electrical vehicles to earn money by selling spare electricity of their owned cars. This would allow the citizens of UK to earn some extra cash by taking advantage of the new electric cars technology, according to Autoblog. This concept has been presented with the help of Nissan and Enel. Enel is an Italian company that provides electricity to cars. 

Unlike petrol and diesel, the electricity price for EV batteries do not remain the same. The charging of battery cost really less in the off hours. While in the rush hours, one has to pay more in order to get his car’s battery charged up to full. If this kind of concept becomes available then the car owners will be able to sell electricity in busy hours to stations. They will be able to sell electricity in a much better price when they will sell them at station at rush hours. Thus making this whole activity cost effective for themselves. 

With the help of this innovation the 18,000 electric units in UK will be able to dump around 180 megawatts back to the grid. This is a huge amount of fuel for the cars. This will surely increase the ease for people to get their cars filled at time. 

Nissan is also going to get a partnership with Eaton in order to have better resources available. This will include cars to have their batteries filled with solar energy. This will save time and money of the car owners. It will be more efficient and more effective to use as well.
