Do you own, or are you planning on buying an electric car? Let solar energy be your fuel!
A grid-tied system will produce energy during the day, being “stored” on the grid for later use. You can charge your car in your garage at night using the energy from the day’s production.
We can size a system to provide the amount of “fuel” you need for the car, or it can be added to a larger system to offset your household usage.
Rebates and special PG&E rate schedules are available for car charging stations.
