The SolarEdge EV charger is incorporated in a single phase inverter. You can charge your EV directly from the power of the sun. This is important because not all EV chargers use solar power. So, your ‘green’ vehicle may not be running on ‘green’ power. It also maximises the use of your solar power and reduces your electricity bill.
An additional benefit is the ability to charge EVs up to 2.5 times faster than a standard EV charger through an innovative solar boost mode that uses grid and solar charging simultaneously. A further benefit is integration with the SolarEdge monitoring platform, enabling you to track power use.
Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, it is important to consider this when purchasing your solar power system.
Key Benefits of an EV Charging Inverter
- Combines sun and grid power for charging up to 2.5 times faster than a standard EV charger
- Reduces workload and costs of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter
- An EV-ready solution, future-proofed for new EV purchase or replacement, and compatible with multiple EV connectors
- Maximises self-consumption by using excess solar for EV charging
- Fully integrated with the SolarEdge monitoring platform (monitoring connection is also required for first-time EV charging)
- Built-in meter enables separate tracking of EV power usage for visibility and control
- 12-year warranty(1), extendable to 20 or 25 years
- Demand-Response ready
EV Charger Configuration
For EV charger configuration via the monitoring app, Ethernet or ZigBee® connection is required.
Mobile phone connection may be used. It requires a SIM card with a 1GB data plan that can be purchased from your mobile phone provider.
