Venture pairs Nissan's Leaf with solar energy to cut utility costs

Automaker joins with Japan telecom provider NTT to offer service to companies

The Leaf is Nissan's flagship electric vehicle. Its batteries will be utilized as a building power source in the new service. 

TOKYO -- Nissan Motor and Japanese telecom provider NTT Group will kick off a service as early as this year that allows corporations to cut utility bills by tapping power generated by electric vehicles and solar panels during peak demand. 

The service can also be used as an emergency power source in the event of a disaster.
