How to Charge Your Car With FREE Clean Energy


How to Charge Your Car With FREE Clean Energy

At times electric vehicles have proved something of an enigma to consumers looking to contribute to a more sustainable future.

As well as being better for the environment, EVs are also just better cars than their fossil-fuelled equivalents. They are accelerating more quickly, they have nearly no internal moving parts, which reduces both noise and wear and tear, which overall means lower maintenance costs.

However, it’s the running costs that really make the difference as according to GoUltraLow, cleaner vehicles can be anywhere from a third to 90% cheaper to run than their fossil-fuelled equivalents. In fact, some energy suppliers are starting to offer completely free charging in exchange for using some of their spare battery power at peak times.

So, for people who have taken the plunge and invested in an electric vehicle, the main question is how do you charge it with green energy?

CHARGE YOUR ELECTRIC VEHICLE WITH RENEWABLE ENERGY

The most obvious answer is to plug straight into solar panels or a wind turbine which is doable. For example, there is a charge point in Sheffield which allows users to charge straight from the wind turbine itself and describes itself as the UK’s “first fully integrated solar PV, storage and EV charging hub”.

However, of course, most EV charging is done at home which is one of the things that makes them so convenient. This combined with domestic solar panels makes the two technologies a match made in heaven as it allows you to utilise your renewable technologies to their optimum performance. As well as this, it allows you to use more of your generated solar electricity and to save more money and carbon emissions.

The easiest option for an EV owner to use clean energy is to simply follow the time. Setting your car to charge when the electricity grid is at its greenest will allow you to pull more energy in at times when more sources are coming from your renewable technologies than the grid.

With more viable options becoming available for technologies such as EV charging, alternative energy is quickly becoming a solution for everyone and here at Ecolution, we are thrilled to be able to offer these technologies to you!
