Three fascinating videos tracking Shiela's experience of her Nissan Leaf powering the Grid

We simply love Shiela and I am sure you will too. This series of video explains how Shiela was keen to connect up her new Nissan Leaf to the Grid. 

Whilst V2G (vehicle to grid) technology is different to the EV power stations that our website is dedicated to, it is interesting to see how taking power from an EV affects it's life and health. This is revealed in the third video after she has been using it for one year. We will continue to monitor how she gets on.

We are convinced that whilst the charging of EVs may put a strain on the national grid as they become more popular, it is also likely they they may well form part of the solution.

I hope that you will enjoy these videos - A big thanks to Shiela for creating such interesting and entertaining videos
