Opting for an electric vehicle (EV) is already a savvy financial move, potentially costing as little as £5 to cover 100 miles of travel, depending on the specific make and model. However, combining your EV with solar-powered charging takes this smart choice to the next level.
Electric vehicles (EVs) are undoubtedly the future of motoring. In April 2022, 48.5% of all newly registered vehicles were either Fully electric, or Hybrid Electric. 1 in 6 new cars expected to join the roads in the UK across 2022 will be Electric only, and major manufacturers including: Volvo, Fod, Cadillac, Mini, Lexus, Bentley and Rolls Royce, are all publicly committed to having an all electric vehicle line-up by 2030.
The UK government has announced its commitment to end the sale of new diesel and petrol-powered vehicles after 2030. Not only will this mean that all new cars and vans sold after 2030 must be electric, but soon after that all previously owned vehicles will be too.
Solar energy could lower the running cost of running their electric vehicle when charging their car from their solar panels. When buying your EV you will likely install a charging station. Your solar panels will provide the power, giving you a solar powered electric vehicle charging station, letting you help to save the planet, whilst saving money too.
No, you don't need to have a storage battery to charge your car if it is plugged in when your system is generating electricity. However, if you want to charge your car during non-daylight hours, then yes, you will need a storage battery installed within your system.
No, whether you charge your car from the grid, direct solar power, or your stored energy, your electric vehicle will always charge at the rate your charger allows.
