Smyrna solar-powered charger under construction


Construction of solar-assisted charging stations at Nissan's Smyrna, TN factory



Japanese automaker Nissan has has begun installation of 30 solar-assisted charging stations at its Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant and its Nissan Americas headquarters in Franklin, TN. Given that Nissan's operations in Tennessee date back three decades, the 30 chargers more or less celebrate the automaker's history with the Volunteer State. Or, as Carlos Tavares, chairman of Nissan Americas, put it:



Tennessee is Nissan's home in the Americas region. These solar-assisted charging stations demonstrate our dedication to a zero-emissions society and our dedication to bringing innovation to our home in Tennessee.


The solar-powered charging stations, which will be operational by July 1st, are designed to charge say, to name one not-so-random example - the Nissan Leaf. By late next year, Nissan will build the Leaf and its lithium-ion battery pack at its Smyrna manufacturing complex. Nissan says that construction of the battery plant in Smyrna is 75-percent complete.
