Technology correspondent Juha Saarinen joins Kathryn to look at a new EV charger that has been made from used Nissan Leaf batteries. The low voltage berm battery system is located at Mercer and uses 18 repurposed Leaf batteries that would otherwise have been discarded to landfill. And Juha also looks at bundling - are consumers really getting a better deal by having all their utilities in one place?
