Solar Car Charging Saves You Money
The best way to power your hybrid or electric car? The sun! By increasing the size of your solar electrical system by 1kW, you can produce enough additional energy for 30 solar-powered miles per day for your EV car or plug-in hybrid.
A solar electrical system for your home provides clean, renewable solar energy, and allows you to use that same solar energy to charge your vehicle at night. Utility time-of-use electric rates magnify your savings, because you get the most credit for the solar energy you feed back into the grid during peak middle-of-day use hours. When you use your system for solar car charging at night, you pay the lowest electric rates and charge your car with your solar system’s credits.
Compare the cost of 1kW of solar power to the cost of 1 gallon of gas per day over 30 years. You’ll pay $21,000 for the gas (and we used a relatively low price of $3.50 per gallon, 200 days per year.) You’ll only pay about $4,000 to add 1kW to a solar electrical system, after rebates and tax incentives. That’s a net savings of $17,000.
