Solar Power: The Future of Eco-Friendly EV Charging

The intersection of electric vehicles (EVs) and solar technology represents a significant stride towards sustainable energy consumption. As EV adoption rates climb, pairing them with solar power is becoming increasingly appealing for eco-conscious consumers. According to a 2020 Ausgrid customer survey, 60% of households with EVs have installed solar systems, surpassing average solar adoption rates.

This synergy is pivotal as it not only leverages renewable energy but also maximizes the utility of solar installations. Charging an EV during peak solar hours—like midday—ensures the vehicle consumes the cleanest electricity possible. This method aligns with periods of high renewable energy production, notably solar, which can account for more than 100% of the electricity demand in areas like South Australia.

For those considering this eco-friendly charging method, it’s essential to understand ‘excess solar power.’ This is the energy your solar system generates that isn’t immediately used by your home. Typically, this excess is sent back to the grid, providing you with a credit on your electricity bill. However, by channeling this excess power to charge your EV, you are making a direct contribution to reducing carbon emissions.

There are several technological aids to help manage this process. Advanced third-party apps like Charge HQ and wallboxes equipped with smart features can optimize the use of excess solar power. These tools can adjust the charging based on real-time energy production and consumption rates, allowing for efficient use of solar energy.

Despite the benefits, there are considerations to keep in mind. Charging solely on solar power might extend charging times, especially if the solar setup is modest or household energy usage is high. Yet, this can be mitigated by daily charging habits and using energy monitoring systems to better regulate power use and charging times.
