1) Types of EV Chargers

  1. Level 1 Chargers: Level 1 chargers are ideal for situations where a Level 2 charger is not available. They use a standard household plug and provide slow charging speeds. Level 1 chargers are suitable for overnight charging and can be used in scenarios where Level 2 charging is unavailable, such as staying with relatives for a weekend.
  2. Level 2 Chargers: Most workplaces are equipped with Level 2 chargers, which offer faster charging compared to Level 1 chargers. When investing in a home Ev charger this is what is typically installed. These chargers require a 240-volt power source and are commonly installed in residential settings and commercial establishments. Level 2 chargers are versatile and can significantly reduce charging time compared to Level 1 chargers.
  3. DC Fast Chargers: Also known as Level 3 chargers, DC fast chargers provide the quickest charging times and are commonly found in public charge points, along motorways and major routes. They can charge an EV battery to 80% capacity in as little as 30 minutes, making them ideal for long-distance travel and quick charging needs.

4) Charging with Solar and Battery

One of the best advantages of having solar panels and a battery system installed is the ability to charge your EV for free using renewable energy. By using the electricity you have generated and stored with your solar system and battery you can choose when you charge your EV and charge it for free. By charging your EV with your own generated electricity you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint while enjoying cost savings on your vehicle's charging needs.

Our integrated solutions allow you to maximise the benefits of solar energy by scheduling charging times through user friendly apps. You have the flexibility to choose when your generated electricity goes towards charging your EV, optimising energy usage and minimising utility costs.
