Solar-Powered Electric (EV) Charging Stations

New Hampshire have the highest per CO2 emissions in New England according to the Energy Information Administration. 50% of emissions come from ReVision Energy has begun the problem by installing the region’s solar electric vehicle station:

Solar Powered Vehicle Charging

Some facts:

Just 9 solar should provide roughly electricity to power 12,000 of electric driving each

Level II charging station full vehicle battery in 4 to 8 hours depending on vehicle

Nearly half of the cost of the electric system is paid for by and federal incentives

If you would drive a 20mpg vehicle, solar electric panels your electric car will pay for in around 2 years . Over 20 this will be like $0.32/gal for gasoline!*

The Chevy of Evan Sohm, owner of a home in Londonderry, NH

One of our customers who has a describe the story like

I drive from Londonderry, NH to MA for work, Monday thru It’s approximately a 37 mile trip; the Volt will go 40 miles on 10kWHr of charge. As a I’ve been driving the to and from work without any gas.

The PV Solar Panels on my roof 4kW of power in full sun. So if the sun on my roof for 2.5hours, that 10kWHr of energy which is to drive the car for 40 miles! On average our PV produces 18.9kWhr/day.

If you use all that to charge the Volt you could 75 miles per day with zero expenses.

If we drove a regular car gets 25mpg for 75 miles, would require 3 gallons of So for us, it’s like our solar produce 3 gallons of gas per day, day.

I couldn’t be happier, in all honesty, I hate giving my to the oil companies. Not only do I get to save and help the environment, but I get to drive a cool car! Everybody who a ride in it says it’s a space ship. But the Chevy is not rocket science. It’s any other regular car, much more efficient.

So I’ve driven 7,000 and the lifetime fuel economy is

Why Drive An Electric Vehicle

Electric vehicles offer a trifecta of benefits:

Lower footprint: burning gasoline for 50% of carbon emissions in New England, and 27% of all consumed in the United States

money: Lock in a 20-year of power with an electric car by a solar electric system

independence: stop supporting oil and gas and get where you need to go with from the sun

The return of the electric ushers in a new era of transportation, where we can sever ties to dirty, fossil fuels and get where we to go with clean power the sun.

Is an EV as Safe as Other

Despite sensational stories in the electric cars are as safe as cars on the road. The National Traffic Safety Administration performed has performed rigorous on the Chevy Volt and determined is not aware of any roadway crashes have resulted in battery-related in Chevy Volts or other powered by lithium-ion batteries NHTSA ).

While battery technologies introduce new safety issues need to be considered carefully, are not inherently any more or less than gasoline or diesel vehicles. Indeed, modern vehicles are considerably safer older combustion engine that don’t include the safety innovations such as airbags, safety cages, brakes, and stability control.

Better? The Nissan LEAF or Volt?

The hood of a Nissan open at ReVision Energy’s electric vehicle charging open house. Thanks to Garbo .

The Nissan LEAF and Volt are both excellent with stellar reviews and respective base of rabid The primary difference is that a LEAF is a completely electric and the Chevy Volt is an EV-hybrid a gasoline engine that on when the battery range is

Reasons why you may prefer the Nissan

Greater all-battery of range, up to 100 mi, we’ve heard 80 mi is the more electric vehicle range

lower up-front cost the Volt

Hatchback layout a bit more cargo room the Volt, and a lighter overall

Reasons why you may prefer the Chevy

Great Wall C20R EV

No ‘range’ anxiety — about 40 mi on battery power automatically switches to gas-generator

A more substantial vehicle. the Volt feels a bit like the experience but a bit grippier and sportier

It to be a little easier to get your on a Volt than a LEAF. We that Pape Chevrolet in Maine has Volts shipping

great about both

Fully featured cars Bluetooth, navigation systems, etc.

Easily charge standard 120V, 240V, or 480V chargers

Very in-vehicle monitors that you on how the vehicle is performing and how far you can expect to go on state of charge

Should I Buy Now or Until EVs Get Better?

Undoubtedly, cars will become efficient in the future, just as the of solar electric systems continue to decline. However, does not mean you should to buy!

There is the property of to consider with an EV purchase the sooner you install solar and the sooner you start driving an car instead of a gasoline one, the you will be saving money and off your solar investment.

So, while future electric may get better range, you will saved plenty of money by the that happens.

So How Do I Get a Solar Station?

To charge your vehicle with solar, you two components: a solar electric and a Level II electric vehicle station. ReVision Energy can both for you.

A Level II vehicle charger consists of a hard-wired EV charging station delivers up to a 24 kWh charge in 4-8 hours. is roughly half the time it take to charge an electric with a 120V plug-in charger.

A grid-tied solar system is the best way to put solar to for your electric car. A system will produce whenever the sun is out, regardless of your house needs it moment or not. So, if you are at work charging there!), the power at your home will be to the grid.

You get that power in the form of a credit, which you can use at while re-charging your EV.

* Assuming all-electric driving, is possible for some but not all Volt Our prediction is based on real-world collected from a 2012 Volt, where we are able to 40 mi driving radius on pure The 20-year cost of energy on a solar electric system (as of 2012) is $0.08/kWh. The Chevy battery pack is 16kWh and claims that up to 50% will be in driving.

4kWh gets you for a cost of $0.32, vs. the $3.60+ will cost you in gasoline.
