(Updated June 1, 2012) May 30, 2012 – EBMag has learned that PowerStream and Nissan Canada will be demonstrating—for the first time in Canada—the ‘vehicle-to-home’ (V2H) power supply technology developed by the Nissan Motor Co. on June 1, 10 am to 11 am at the Georgian College Auto Show (PowerStream booth).

When this technology is available commercially, it promises to help Ontario homeowners on Time-of-Use (ToU) rates who own a Nissan Leaf electric vehicle to better manage their electricity costs through load shifting, as well as by providing a backup power source for homes during an outage.

In addition to VIPs and special guests in attendance, Nissan product specialists will also be on hand to answer questions on this new technology.

Some of the VIPs include: parliamentary assistant to minister of economic development and innovation, Monte Kwinter; PowerStream chair and Town of Markham mayor, Frank Scarpitti; president of Nissan Canada, Allen Childs; Georgian College president and CEO, Brian Tamblyn; as well as the president and CEO of PowerStream; Brian Bentz.
