EV charging

Yes, you can charge your electric car using solar panels. Your clean-energy mileage may vary, but a rule of thumb estimate is that you need about ten additional solar panels to charge your EV with solar power. By using the power of the sun to power your ride, you’re helping keep more fossil fuel in the ground and helping change the way we power our future.
