To charge your electric vehicle with solar panels at home, you need a solar system and a smart charger with a terminal for solar integration.

If your solar system is direct feed, i.e. it doesn’t have an energy storage system, then you can charge your EV directly with solar power during the day.

If your solar system has an energy storage system, you can charge with renewable energy anytime by connecting your energy storage to your smart charger.

For example, the Tesla Powerwall is a popular energy storage system for homes, especially for solar systems and wind generation.

We can install EV chargers with solar integration and connect them to your solar system so that your EV charges with 100% clean energy.
