The World’s First EV Charging Solar System
You’re familiar with charging stations if you own an electric vehicle already. You have one in your garage and likely have encountered them in some parking lots for business complexes and other large facilities. However, electricity costs are rising just as rapidly as gas prices these days. Do you really want to pay a large electric bill to charge your car?
SolarEdge’s EV charging system is specifically designed to plug into your vehicle and charge your car using the power produced by your rooftop solar panels. This dedicated charging station allows you to meet a large power need with a dedicated source, which helps to better control and direct the flow of power through your home for maximum efficiency. Plug your car in when you get home, and the charging station will use either active solar power or stored power from a battery bank to charge your car and ensure that it’s ready for you the next day.
Energy Efficiency Charging
The SolarEdge charging station is all about efficiency—not only in its use of renewable energy but in its ability to use less energy altogether. SolarEdge’s EV charger uses 40% less energy than a standard EV charger when it’s in standby home, which can help reduce your overall energy usage. This charger is ENERGY STAR® certified.
