Introductions by SolarEdge
I mean SolarEdge: it’s a global leader in PV inverters. Also power optimizers and module-level monitoring services. Now, it is unveiling the world’s first inverter-integrated electric vehicle (EV) charger. By supplementing grid power with PV power. I mean now SolarEdge’s Level 2 EV charger offers charging. For that’s up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger. All with its innovative solar boost mode.
SolarEdge’s HD-Wave inverter, once integrated with an EV charger.
For it will not only provide the existing management and monitoring of solar production. All will also enable EV charging from a single inverter and dashboard. The combined solution will also offer considerable cost savings. Especially on both hardware and labor by eliminating the need for an additional conduit. Also wiring and breaker installation. The solution will also eliminate the need for an additional dedicated circuit breaker. That which saves space and a potential main distribution panel upgrade.
So it looks SolarEdge is dedicated to developing innovative solutions. Especially for increasing the use of renewable energy and cost savings. That’s for our customers and end users. That’s from Guy Sella, CEO and Chairman of SolarEdge.
Guy added that bringing EV charging to our growing-range of products further enables system owners. That’s of course to easily manage their energy needs.
Based on patent-pending technology, the EV charger is embedded into SolarEdge’s HD-Wave inverter and leverages its solar boost mode. This mode also utilizes both grid and PV to charge at 9.6kW (40 Amp) Level 2 charging. All which is up to six times faster than standard Level 1 charging. If PV is not available, the inverter-integrated EV charger will use grid power to charge at 7.6kW (32 Amp) Level 2 charging. All which is up to five times faster than standard Level 1 charging.
With a 12-year warranty, the inverter-integrated EV charger offers potential future operating modes. For that’s such as demand-response and charging at off-peak hours. Combining it to optimize Time-of-Use (TOU) rates. The inverter-integrated EV charger is expected to be available in the last quarter of 2017.
