Electric vehicle Charger

On the surface, it looks as though charging an electric vehicle is cheaper than filling up with petrol or diesel.
But with increasing popularity, prices of charging from public charge points are starting to creep up.
Plus, with added membership and admin fees the best option is to charge at he home with your Solar Panels!

For example, charging a Renault Zoe to 80% costs in the region of £4.68. If you can utilise time of use tariffs and charge at night, then that cost can be as low as £2.18 for the same charge – however, you will be paying substantially more for your daytime electricity.
With energy bills continuously rising, plus if you are planning on using your EV for longer journeys than just a trip to the local shops, then charging your vehicle using solar energy, or providing your property with free daytime energy to offset the high energy cost of peak time.

If you want to maximise the use of your generated energy for powering your home and car, then solar PV storage maybe the solution.
In many cases, PV systems produce more energy than a home can use. If your car is plugged in during the day, then it will be able to use this surplus energy for charging.
If your car is away from home during daylight hours, then you will not be able to get the maximum from your PV generation and surplus energy will be sent back to the grid.
Solar storage (batteries) are able to store excess generation for when your system is no longer generating, i.e. for the home or your car.
With all leading car manufacturers driving forward the electric car industry and with the Range of miles increasing to an average of 156 miles per charge, now is the time to make the change from fossil fuels.

What is an Electric Vehicle?

As the name suggests, an electric vehicle or EV runs completely on electricity.
There's no petrol or diesel powering the engine - in fact, there's no engine at all.
That's because EVs run on an electric motor that you can charge at home, or at an electric car charging point.
EVs have for lower carbon emissions than traditional petrol & diesel engines, which means they're better for the environment.
And they can even be zero emission if they're powered by 100% green electricity.

Can You Save Money?

Yes, while electric cars are more expensive to buy than traditional cars, they can help you save money long term because you don't have to pay:

  • Petrol costs - With an electric car, you don't have to worry about the cost of petrol or diesel. The average cost of charging an electric car at home is just £4 for 100 miles of charge - and you can use the electric highway charging points for 30p per kWh.
  • Road tax - You still need to register your EV for road tax, but you won't have to pay anything because EVs don't give off any exhaust emissions.
  • Congestion charges - If you drive an electric car in London, you don't have to worry about paying congestion charges because electric vehicles are exempt.
