Charging stations are needed to support growth in electric vehicle sales.
The total number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road in the U.S. surpassed 1 million in 2018. By Department of Energy forecasts, 2 million EVs will be rolling here near the end of 2020, and 18.7 million by 2030.
At Sun Lion Energy, we will install your EV charging stations for single homes, multi-unit residences, workplaces, and customer parking.
A Level-2 charging port (AC, 240 volts), mounted on a wall or pedestal, will provide about 20 miles of driving capacity per hour of charging. A DC Fast Charging port (DCFC) will provide more than 80 miles of driving in 30 minutes of charging.
There’s no doubt that switching from gas-burning to electric-powered cars eliminates air-polluting tailpipe emissions. But if the electricity to power an EV is generated by a fossil-fuel-burning power plant, driving an EV won’t eliminate toxic emissions.
To gain the maximum environmental benefit from driving an electric vehicle, just use the sun to provide its power! Solar + EV charging is an unbeatable combination…and a favorite of ours to design and install.
