Bi-directional charger approved for Nissan Leaf in the U.S.

Nissan has approved Fermata Energy‘s FE-15 bi-directional charger for use with the Nissan Leaf in the U.S.

With Nissan’s approval, along with its UL 9741 certification for bi-directional charging systems, the Fermata Energy FE-15 charger has passed key requirements from Nissan and has been verified to be compatible with the Nissan Leaf. Usage of the approved charger will also not impact the Leaf’s battery warranty, Nissan says.

Bi-directional charging technology means not only charging the Nissan Leaf, but also sending energy stored in the vehicle battery back to the building or the grid. Nissan says the Leaf is currently the only fully electric passenger vehicle in the U.S. market able to supply energy to the grid, allowing Leaf owners with the Fermata Energy FE-15 bi-directional charger to park their vehicle, plug it in, and save money with their local electric utility, as well as reduce the total cost of ownership of the vehicle.
