Free EV charging using PV solar panels is as simple as charging on a sunny day

PV solar panels are bringing the power of the sun to the electric vehicle industry. Astute EV-owners are charging their cars with solar power. A solar-powered car, what's not to love?



In a nutshell:



Free mileage.

Electric vehicle (EV) sales are growing at an unprecedented rate. The rise of EVs also gets boosted by PV solar panels paving the way to free-charging.

PV solar-generated electrons go toward your charge-point and free motor mileage.



Installation grants.

The UK government has the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme for EV adopters! This scheme offers a 350 GBP grant to install a charge point.




"Which came first, PV solar or electric vehicles? Many are surprised to discover that these technological advancements were both invented in the 1800s."



Will EV charging with solar panels give me all my mileage?

The power to charge an electric vehicle.

If you're able to time your EV-charge during sunshine hours, then it is entirely plausible to generate the majority of your mileage from the sun. However, this depends on your household demands when charging.



Do I need planning permission?

No. Domestic charging consoles are compliant with all building regulations and suitable without planning permission.



Can consoles be used with all-electric vehicles?

Yes. Every electric vehicle currently on the UK market can charge quickly from our two leads console during the day. Even using a standard 13 amp standard socket could fully charge overnight too.


Can charge point consoles be installed in a garage?

Yes, consoles can be installed indoors or outdoors and designed to withstand northern European weather conditions.


Can I self-install an EV charging point?

Part P accreditated tradespeople are qualified. Alternatively, find a local electrician if you wish to purchase an EV-charge point without our professional installation service.


Can I use a charging point for other reasons?

Charge points double up as a traditional electrical socket. This additional extra is ideal for home or garden maintenance, charging mobility scooters, etc.


Is your charge point future proof?

Yes, it's easily upgradable to a full Mode three fast-charge format in addition to upgrading kits if you decide to increase the number of electric cars in your household.


How much does a PV/EV-charge point installation cost?

The cost of an EV-charge point complemented by a household PV solar panel installation depends on several factors.

When wiring an EV-charge point, we look for the electric board's age and ability. Some household electrical boards and wires may require updating to meet modern safety standards.


How long does a charge point last?

The robust design allows us to guarantee the installation for ten years, but the life expectancy is easily double that.


Can I choose where to install it?

Yes, although we install near as possible to the location of your parked car. It's the proximity and wiring routed to your mains electricity output to your preferred EV charger location is essential to consider.


How soon can you install it?

Our nationwide network of installers is very accommodating and in most cases will allow you to choose a preferred installation date.


What maintenance is required?

No routine maintenance is required.



Conclusion.

Interestingly, a fully charged EV can power an average home for two days.

Currently, some EV-owners charge their cars during off-peak nighttime periods for lower charging costs. More astute people charge during the day with PV solar panels.
