THE CENTRAL COAST AND HUNTER REGION SPECIALIST IN renewable POWER INSTALLATIONS

Are you thinking of investing in an electric vehicle?   

There are many good reasons for wanting an electric vehicle. Perhaps you want to reduce emissions and be as green as possible. Maybe you are keeping ongoing expenses low, or you just love new technology!

The most common electric vehicles on the road today are:

  • A hybrid car which uses an engine to charge its battery and can’t be charged from home
  • A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) which can be charged from home but also uses an engine
  • An electric vehicle (EV) that needs to be charged from home, and has no engine at all.

A few issues you need to consider:

  • Will you charge an EV (electric vehicle) from home, office or both?   If so, will you want to charge your vehicle using a combination of grid imported power, ESS (battery) and solar PV energy?
  • Electric Vehicles draw a large amount of power, and will require a dedicated high current sub-circuit from the Main Switchboard (there is no plugging these bad boys into a kitchen powerpoint!)
  • Does your Main Switchboard require upgrading in order to connect  an EV charging station?
