Solar PV for your Electric Car

With the development and growing popularity of electric cars in the UK, people are now looking for ways to charge their electric car sustainably. Ownership of electric cars have rocketed, with over 535,000 pure electric and plug-in hybrid cars on the road in the UK at the end of May 21.

Furthermore, with 80% of EV owners charging their cars at home and 40% of EV owners owning a solar panel system, utilising the energy produced by your solar system has never been so easy and at the fingertips of so many.
