EV Chargers

Electric cars are no longer an underperforming worthy green novelty.  Prices are falling, performance is rocketing and now you can charge up in under an hour.

If you have solar on your property, it can fuel your car for free – saving an average driver about £1000 per year.

EV Chargers In Kent
  • Installing a charging point in your house or business usually costs around £600 – £2000 on top of the price of the system you choose.
  • If you don’t yet have a Solar PV system, no problem. If you’re thinking of going solar in the future we can install an EV charging point in your home or business, connect it to your main electricity supply and make sure the set up is compatible with solar PV systems.

zappi

Charge your EV with your PV

zappi has 3 charging modes which makes it great for all homeowners. Those with grid-tied microgeneration systems like wind or solar can use the eco setting to save on their energy bills. The charging current is automatically and continually adjusted in response to on-site generation and household power consumption. In FAST charge mode, zappi operates like an ordinary EV charging station.

Charging Modes

ECO

Charge power is continuously adjusted in response to changes in generation or power consumption elsewhere in the home. Charging will continue until the vehicle is fully charged, even if power is drawn from the grid.

ECO +

Charge power is continuously adjusted in response to changes in generation or power consumption elsewhere in the home. Charging will pause if there is too much imported power, continuing only when there is surplus free power available.

FAST

In this mode, the vehicle will be charged at maximum power. This is just like an ordinary Mode 3 charging point.

F.A.Q.

Frequent Questions

u

I have a loft conversion – could I still have PV panels installed?

Yes, PV solar panels can be fitted to any roof, even if there is no access to the loft or it is used daily.

u

I’ve got some shading, is that a problem?

Shading will reduce the power output of solar panels and any panels directly connected to the shaded panel.  Sunbright Energy can calculate exactly what impact your shading will havel. Severe shading, like a chimney right in front of panels (known as Hard Shading) can also cause some long term damage.  Naked Solar will be able to advise you of the best place for your panels to be installed.

u

Do I need a south facing roof?

No, Solar PV panels work on light and all roofs have light shining on them. Many customers have fitted east/west facing systems and typically generate around 86% of an equivalent south-facing roof.

u

I’ve been offered some panels with diodes that stop the effects of shading.

Almost every panel on the market has diodes these days and they don’t completely stop the effects of shading, however they do help.
