Electric vehicles will only become more and more popular as costs fall and emissions benefit Free vehicles are becoming clearer and clearer. Batteries that power these vehicles need to be replaced every couple of years, but that doesn\'t mean they become useless, so Nissan decided to replace them again For outdoor lighting. Nissan needs to do something about the old battery of its Leaf electric vehicle. These batteries are still working, just not good enough for power-hungry vehicles. As a result, the Japanese company has launched a new street lamp design,grid. Nissan, in partnership with its subsidiary Nissan Energy, has designed a new type of outdoor lighting device that does not need to be connected to the main grid. It\'s just a lamp, an old leaf battery and a solar panel, and it\'s called the project of rebirth light. During the day, the solar panels generate electricity and are then stored in Leaf batteries. Free lights at night! This week, a prototype of a lamp was being tested in the Japanese town of Namie, which is still recovering from the 2011-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that hit the area. Nissan intends to be \"comprehensive\" once proven effective Urban scale installations that begin before the end of the fiscal year \". These projects are a relatively simple way to reuse components while continuing to reduce emissions. As the number of electric vehicles on our roads increases, the number of items that reuse batteries will also increase. If it succeeds, Nissan\'s rebirth light project may eventually see all the street lights in Japan shut down. GRID Alternatives. Imagine the energy that can be saved every year. . .
