Standard EV Charger
This graph is a 24-hour period. The green bell curve represents the solar generation and the blue beneath is the homes’ self-consumed solar energy. Red is the grid energy. Note only half the EV’s charge has been Free from the sun.
Solar Inverter EV Charger
Here we have the only EV charging solar inverter that controls the energy flow into the EV. Note the energy charging – the EV stays below the curve of the solar generation. This is the only way you can guarantee your ‘Green EV’ is truly green.
With SolarEdge’s EV charging single phase inverter you can charge your EV directly from the solar power you produce to further reduce electricity bills. The combined HD Wave Solar Inverter and EV charger removes the need for a standalone charger as well as a solar PV inverter and enables integration with the SolarEdge monitoring platform.
The SolarEdge Features
Zappi works like an ordinary EV charging point. However, it has two special eco charging modes to benefit people with grid-tied micro-generation systems such as solar power. The two modes automatically adjust charging current in response to home power generation and household power consumption. In FAST charge mode, Zappi operates like an ordinary EV charging station.
