EV Charging Stations

EV Charging Stations

Plug-in electric vehicles (also known as electric cars or EVs) are connected, fun, and practical. They can reduce emissions and even save you money. EVs can also reduce the emissions that contribute to climate change and smog, improving public health and reducing ecological damage.

The Electric Vehicles (EV) are the future of transport. With the ever-rising pollution and its detrimental effect on the environment, there has been a large scale paradigm shift towards EV’s. A perennial obstacle faced by most EV manufacturers and consumers is the availability of a plug point for charging when on the go. There definitely is a need to move from the GRID based charging stations to standalone off grid solutions for charging.

On-Grid solar charging stations

A grid-tied solar energy system is the most straight forward way to charge your electric car with solar energy.  A grid-tied solar energy system will feed the power to the grid, regardless of whether your home needs the power at that moment or not. So when your solar energy system is feeding to the grid, and you are at your office, the electric power generated at home is sold to the utility company. You’ll get that power back from the utility company in the form of a credit. When you come back from work and park your car at home, you can use that credit to re-charge your car at home.

A conventional electric vehicle charger that is connected to the grid “will almost always be cheaper” than an Off-Grid charger that stores the power in batteries.

Off-Grid Solar charging station

An Off-Grid electrical car charger can also be named “Electric Vehicle Autonomous Renewable Charger” There’s no connection to local utilities required. The solar panel array will feed the battery energy storage system and the entire power needs are drawn from this storage system.

Off-grid electrical car chargers can be placed virtually anywhere, as there’s no need for a connection to the electrical grid. The independent solar array canopy catches quite some wind, and for that reason a solid foundation is required.

Beyond enabling the increased use of renewable electricity generation, improved energy storage technologies have several benefits:

  • Security: A more efficient grid that is more resistant to disruptions.
  • Environment: Decreased carbon dioxide emissions from a greater use of clean electricity
  • Economy: Increase in the economic value of wind and solar power
