ROLEC EV LAUNCH NEW SOLAR EV CHARGING UNIT

May 2nd 2019

Rolec EV, one of the UK’s leading EV charge point manufacturers, has announced the launch of a new solar powered electric vehicle charging unit, WallPod:EV SolarCharge.

WallPod:EV SolarCharge is a cost-efficient EV charging solution specially designed to benefit homeowners who have, or have future plans to install, a home solar panel array.

Frankie Mellon, Rolec’s National EV Sales Manager, commented: “EV SolarCharge has been designed to offer the homeowner a feature-rich charging solution that not only displays the charging activity, but also highlights whether the charging is coming from the National Grid, exclusively from the home’s solar panels, or a combination of both.

“The standout features of EV SolarCharge include two unique charging modes and a summary data screen.

“The first of the two charging modes is the Solar + Grid Charge, which monitors the solar power being generated, highlights it on the data screen, and tops up any shortfall with power from the Grid.

“The second of the two charging modes is the Solar Only mode, which monitors and tracks the power being generated by the home’s solar array and limits the charge provided to the EV, matching exactly the amount of power produced by the panels. In effect, the EV is now running on the sun.”

Frankie continued: “In addition to the two charging modes, EV SolarCharge also provides a summary data screen which demonstrates historical charging activity - including total charging kWs, solar supplied charging kWs Vs Grid supplied charging kWs, the actual percentage of charging provided by the sun, and the amount of CO2 saved.

“While EV SolarCharge has primarily been designed for homes with solar arrays, it can also be installed on homes without solar panels - utilising the Grid supply until a solar array is fitted.

“EV SolarCharge provides Mode 3 fast charging in both 3.6kW (16A) and 7.2kW (32A) formats, and is compatible with all current PHEVs and EVs.”

Kieron Alsop, Rolec’s MD, commented: “We are delighted to launch EV SolarCharge, which is the first of a number of exciting new smart enabled EV charging products due to be released over the next month or so.”
