#electricvehicles (EVs) are becoming more popular, with reports (*) showing that 16.6. % of new car registrations in 2022, were electric. Those of us who already have or are considering buying an electric vehicle, are looking for more sustainable and eco-friendly ways to charge our cars. One of the most obvious and overlooked solutions is to use solar panels to generate electricity to charge #EVs.
Everyone knows that solar panels can provide free energy and help reduce your electricity bill. The confusing part is what do we do with that energy to help cut costs. Heating our water is one use, but depending who your energy supplier is, what tariff you’re on and how much energy you use can impact your ability to realise potential savings.
Using solar panels to charge electric cars essentially means that we can charge our electric vehicles and drive around for free. Once the solar panel system is installed, it generates free energy from the sun. Storing this energy in batteries which are then able to charge your car overnight, reduces the amount of electricity that needs to be purchased from the grid. This can result in significant cost savings over the life of the system and a real tangible benefit from your investment.
