SolarEdge Inverter_EV_ChargerHomeowners have a new way to become more energy independent, decrease their electricity costs and reduce their carbon footprint. It can save builders a few bucks, too.

SolarEdge’s HD-Wave inverter-integrated electric vehicle (EV) powers electric vehicles by supplementing grid power with photovoltaic (PV) power via a single inverter. The HD-Wave inverter with an integrated EV charger also provides existing management and monitoring of solar production, and enables EV charging from a single inverter and dashboard. The combined solution offers considerable cost savings on both hardware and labor by eliminating the need for an additional conduit, wiring and breaker installation. The solution also eliminates the need for an additional dedicated circuit breaker, which saves space and, potentially, a main distribution panel upgrade.

Based on patent-pending technology, the EV charger is embedded into SolarEdge’s HD-Wave inverter and leverages its solar boost mode. This mode utilizes the grid and PV to charge at 9.6 kW (40 amp) Level 2 charging, 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 7.6 kW (32 amp) Level 2 charging, which is up to five times faster than standard Level 1 charging.

With a 12-year warranty, the inverter-integrated EV charger also offers potential future operating modes, such as demand-response and charging at off-peak hours to optimize Time-of-Use (TOU) rates. Homeowners have a new way to become more energy independent, decrease
