PV to EV

Charging an EV from a rooftop solar PV system

What are the benefits of owning a rooftop solar Photovoltaic (PV) system and owning an Electric Vehicle (EV)? Electricity generated from your solar panels can be used to charge your EV. You can compare this to growing vegetables in your garden. There is a sense of satisfaction generating and consuming electricity from sunshine. If you charge while the sun is shining, you do not pay transmission charges, retail fees or taxes. These represent 70% of your power bill.
