In the first half of 2022, one in eight new passenger vehicles bought in Canada was an electric vehicle (EV). It’s only set to rise in popularity, which has many business owners wondering if the solar panels at their businesses can support the increasing demand for EV charging stations.
Can solar energy support EV charging for your employees? The answer is 100% yes.
Curtis Craig, President of Inferno Solar, drives a Tesla Model 3, using ~299 kilowatt hours per month and driving about 25,000 kilometres a year. Over the course of a year, a solar system can generate that much electricity with seven solar panels.
When we’re working on a scale of 700 or 1700 solar panels, the supply dwarfs the EV charging demand. A good system can power your EVs with energy left over for the rest of your business.
Did you know that Inferno Solar offers EV charging stations as well as rooftop solar systems? We partner with industry-leading EV technology providers, sourcing hardware that is safe, proven, and reliable, with software that is easy to operate, monitor, and maintain. Every EV charging station we install is built to withstand Canadian elements and designed to be driver-friendly and easy to use.
