The Electric Car That Can Power Your House



Who needs a generator when you've got the Nissan Leaf, an 100% electric car that can power your house for 2 days via the "Leaf-to-home" system, a converter that attaches to your home's electric panel and allows for the car's lithium-ion battery to provide power when it may be otherwise unavailable.With the people of Japan still recovering from the recent disasters, Nissan feels that a symbiotic relationship between electric car and home may be just the thing to keep the lights on when everything else around you is falling to pieces. http://www.popsci.com/cars/article/2011-08/nissan-rolls-out-system-lets-leaf-serve-backup-battery-japanese-households -via PopSci Image via Tom Rafferty at Wikimedia
