Thanks for that.goldbrick wrote: ↑Tue Jan 28, 2020 11:56 am^That is exactly what I was thinking. In my current house, I'm planning to go grid-tied but if I buy my parents' place in the future, it might make sense to go off-grid. I haven't done the math but it seems like a used Leaf battery is much cheaper than just about any other battery storage at the moment and if a used pack could be had for $1200 or something that makes it even better.
Good luck with your project and feel free to post any details here. There is an off-topic area that has a bunch of solar installs and such.
I will plan to do post details on this site as I get further along.
Regarding the battery delivery to my place, I talked to a local Nissan dealership about returning (to Nissan) the pallet that, literally, says "EV Battery pallet - do not throw away." I talked to the parts manager and the pallet is apparently intended to be for an intra-dealer transfer. They receive a new leaf battery and put the old one (removed from the Leaf) on the received pallet... so there are no 'extra' pallets around. Turns out they didn't want the pallet. I also asked if I could buy the battery, but the guy dissed me.
I have a connection to another leaf dealership in NC and I'll try to see details on how this might work, not just for me but for those interested in obtaining/retaining the battery.
