EV Home Charging
The future is electric.
Of course, if you drive, or plan to drive, an electric vehicle, you already know that. Tesla, Nissan, Chevrolet, Ford, BMW, and Volkswagen are just a few of the auto manufacturers who make EVs—and who are struggling to keep pace with demand. These silent, fuel-efficient, low-emission cars save you money on gas and minimize their impact on the environment.
That’s why Yes Solar Solutions offers EV home charging installation (and has for a while, if you’ll excuse the humblebrag). We’re happy to answer your questions, and interested in figuring out how best to meet your EV’s needs. From checking out your main panel to finding the best placement of your outlet/charger, we can help you get charged and on the road.
If you’re entering the EV market and are just beginning your research, we’re happy to offer our insight! Driving your EV (especially when paired with solar and batteries) is a leap towards achieving the power of independence—and we, a bunch of renewable energy nerds, are amped to help you get there.
Typically, different EV models come with their own proprietary charging accessories and equipment. The Tesla 3, S and X, for example, come with a 20ft mobile connector and several adapters. Adapters allow charging with standard 120 volt household outlets, higher power 240 volt outlets, as well as adapters for public charging stations. The recommended outlet for a Tesla vehicle is the 240-volt NEMA 14-50 outlet, which will charge with the standard equipment at your home.
We have also installed optional charging accessories like the Tesla Wall Connector. Designed specifically for Tesla vehicles, this connector allows for the fastest possible home charging, and provides two lengths of cables (8.5′ or 24′). It’s important to recognize where your power will be coming from and how you park your car in your garage!
We also offer ChargePoint Home, a WiFi enabled residential charger that is ideal for personal garages. ChargePoint Home can:
- Charge any EV up to 6X faster than a wall outlet, adding up to 25 miles of Range per Hour
- Set reminders, schedule charging and track energy use with the ChargePoint app
- Manage home charging with your voice using Amazon Alexa
Not to worry: you already know we make solar simple. We make EV home charging installation simple, too!
Solar, EV Charging, and Battery Backup
A common question is how to pair your EV charger with a solar or battery backup—and it’s a question we love being asked! We have put together information (including a table!) showing what size solar array you would need to offset your EV’s charging needs. Want to talk battery backup? We offer solutions from Tesla, ChargePoint, Outback, and Sonnen and more. We can set up a free consultation to discuss all your needs and develop the right solution for you.
