Powerspout and Nissan do a deal.

In a ground-breaking move, UK electric car maker Nissan is gifting a free Leaf all-electric car to Powerspout owners.  The offer, which is for a limited time only, is seen as a bold move to promote the 'green' credentials of both technologies.

The ability of the Powerspout to generate a dc voltage compatible with the 360v dc requirement of the Leaf's battery, makes the connection between the turbine and car simply a matter of plugging in, - no complicated power processing is needed.

The range of the 30 kWh version of the Leaf is NEDC rated at 155 miles, - a distance for which the required re-charge can be provided by a Powerspout in just a matter of minutes.

This tie up between Nissan and EcoInnovation, the maker of Powerspout products, adds a tantalising new benefit to owning a Powerspout: a car for FREE and NEVER a visit to a filling station forecourt again !

The offer closes after April 1st 2017 so interested parties need to move quickly to avoid missing out on what has to be an almost too-good-to-be-true deal.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction - Nissan IS offering re-cycled Leaf batteries for energy storage in the home, - see XStorage Home on Nissan's web site. Now THAT IS something Powerspout owners could be interested in, - and without being playfully deceived!
