ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING
Many of our customers who install a Solar System also opt to install an EV power outlet because they already own or are planning to own an Electrical Vehicle (EV). This enables them to offset the energy required to charge their EV with the energy generated by their Solar System – an End-to-End Green solution!
Home Charging Solutions: Level 1 & Level 2
There are two types of home charging: level 1 charging and level 2 charging.
- Level 1 charging happens when you charge an electric vehicle (EV) using the charger included with the car. These chargers can be plugged with one end into any standard 120V outlet, with the other end being plugged directly into the car. It can charge 200 kilometers (124 miles) in 20 hours.
- Level 2 chargers are sold separately from the car, although they’re often purchased at the same time. These chargers require a slightly more complicated setup, as they are plugged into a 240V outlet which allows charging 3 to 7 times faster depending on the electric car and the charger.
