The idea of electric cars is that they're meant to help reduce our carbon footprint in the world. However there are some questions, such as what do companies do with the used batteries after they've done? Do they simply throw them away? While different companies probably have different approaches, Nissan has an idea: use them to power street lights.
In a program dubbed "The Reborn Light", this sees Nissan take recycled Nissan Leaf batteries and use them to power street lights. This will involve the use of a solar panel that will be used to charge the batteries so that at night, the batteries can then be used to provide lights on the street for both pedestrians and traffic.
