This is a used pack, Nissan won't sell you a leaf pack without a leaf to go with it!hill wrote:This is a very slick set up. I'd imagine several will start doing something similar. I hope Nissan doesn't jack up the price on their pack, to slow such projects down.
I agree with these points and understand them. My question was more on the line of how fast the capacity of the battery will actually degrade (all of them do). I somehow doubt the Leaf battery aging models will fit exactly - if they do then it would be like a full discharge each day (so, consider that 70 miles/day or approx 25K miles/year?) But is the temperature management in this case at all comparable to the Leaf use case?mitch672 wrote:I believe the BMS is talking to the Sunny Island via the CAN bus, so it is aware of the SOC of the battery bank, and likely will not drain it down below a certain SOC/Voltage. There is a point of diminishing returns, there isn't much point in having a lot more KW of storage than what the PV array can produce in a day or two...
Nissan will, but only if you already own a LEAF.="JeremyW"... Nissan won't sell you a leaf pack without a leaf to go with it!
They won't sell them one, simple as that. The terms of the sale dictate they give the old pack up.edatoakrun wrote:I wonder what Nissan will do when the first LEAF owners demands a replacement pack purchase, without giving Nissan back their OE battery pack?
