Charging an electric vehicle (EV) from home is often an overnight affair, but with the recent release of SolarEdge’s EV Charging Single Phase Inverter, the pace of charging is now faster than ever.
Electric vehicle charging stations have been popping up around the country, but the stations are few and far between, prompting many EV owners to charge their vehicles from home. Plugging an EV straight into a wall socket and charging your battery is as easy as it sounds, but this type of charge can take up to 8 hours.
For a faster charge, a level two charging unit will need to be installed in the home; cost is roughly $1,000, with an installation cost of between $500/$1,000.
Thinking of installing solar power and an EV charging station? Consider the two in one option; SolarEdge’s EV-Charging Single Phase Inverter. It uses regular solar power production functions, and delivers electricity into the battery six times faster than a standard wall charger.
The Solaredge two for one option is a no-brainer for those who drive an EV and are thinking of installing solar power, but remember - owning technologies such as these comes at a small price. But this price is still lower than installing a separate EV charger at a later date, so that small upfront cost is certainly worth it.
The Solaredge inverter/charger comes with its own monitoring platform for scheduled charging, tracking activity and remote controlling via a mobile app from anywhere in the world.
With a twelve year warranty (that can be extended for up to 25 years), easy installation and accessibility with faster charging through solar panel and/or grid use, the reviews for the SolarEdge EV Charging Single Phase Inverter are solid, and we tend to agree.
