Nissan plants in Tennessee experiment with solar, energy storage for EVs

Nissan North America is planning to roll out 30 new solar-powered electric vehicle charging stations that will both allow the public to charge up and provide energy storage research for the local utility.

Nissan released its electric vehicle, the Leaf, earlier this year and is now rolling out some infrastructure that will make it easier for visitors and employees to charge their electric Nissan Leafs at local Nissan facilities in Tennessee.

The company’s plant in Knoxville, Tenn., already has some chargers installed. But 30 new ones at the facilities in Smyrna will give community members and Nissan visitors a place to plug in, said John Harris, director of facilities and environmental engineering.

The project coordinator, Stacie Cain, said that Nissan decided to explore the solar option, rather than created grid-reliant charging stations for the public because the company wanted to respond to utility concerns that electric vehicles would be a dangerous draw on the grid.

“We wanted to minimize our overall impact on the grid,” Crain said.

The Japanese auto manufacturer does most of its U.S. operations in Tennessee and has been working closely with the Tennessee Valley Authority, the local utility, and Oakridge Research Laboratories on this project.

“There is a bit of a demonstration element here as well,” Harris said of the companies planned solar car chargers. “We want to see how we can further reduce the demand on the grid by using the Nissan Leaf battery to store energy.”
