Solar Watt was a pleasure to deal with from the first meeting all the way through the installation. I first met with Dave Watt (yes his name really is Watt). Dave gave me all the details and options and the difference between the different type systems that people install....

Electric Car Charging

Solar Watt Solutions is proud to present Fast Charge EV. Together, solar power and electric car charging can allow you to use 100% renewable energy to power the technology you use every day.

Basics of Electric Car Charging

You may already know that you can save time, money, and energy by using EV charging, but how does it work? Because electric car chargers can be hard to locate when you’re on the road, and many public chargers take a long time to charge your vehicle, most electric car owners choose to power their cars up at home. A standard Level 1 charger– the kind most car sellers and manufactures provide with the purchase of your vehicle– is easy to use and requires nothing to  install. You simply plug your car charger into a standard 120 volt 3-prong outlet. However, the disadvantage of such chargers is that they can take anywhere from 18 to 48 hours to fully recharge your EV battery.

Few people have that much time to wait. Upgrading to a Level 2 at-home EV charger can reduce your charging time to just 2 to 5 hours. You can power up your car while you sleep, taking advantage of discounted utility rates on off-peak hours. You also save time because when you wake up and prepare to head out the next day, your car is fully recharged and ready to go every morning. No need to wait for additional hours of charging or to stop by the gas station.

Understanding EVSE

EVSE refers to any device which links AC power to a car. This equipment converts AC power to DC power which the charger stores and uses to refill your car’s battery. Our team of knowledgeable and experienced professionals can help you choose the EVSE best suited to your vehicle, home, and energy needs.
