How does a solar EV charger work?

A solar EV charger is an efficient and eco-friendly way to charge electric vehicles. The solar energy that is collected by the panels on a solar EV charger is converted into electrical energy, which can then be used to power electric cars. To put it simply, a solar EV charger works by allowing the photons in natural daylight to hit the cells in the solar panel and generate electricity. This electricity can then be used to power your electric vehicle, reducing dependence on grid electricity.

Solar EV chargers are becoming increasingly popular due to their efficiency and environmental friendliness. By using solar energy instead of grid electricity, you’re able to reduce your carbon footprint and save money on energy bills. Solar EV chargers are also easy to install and maintain, making them a great choice for any electric vehicle owner.

Three Electric Car Charging Modes


This mode is a mixture of both green energy and energy imported from the grid. eco mode minimises the use of grid power and can charge using 100% green energy. The charging power is continuously adjusted in response to changes in generation or power being used elsewhere in the home.

If the surplus generation drops below 1.4kw some power will be drawn from the grid to top it back up.


Charge power is continuously adjusted in response to changes in generation or power consumption elsewhere in the home. Your electric car charging will pause if there is too much-imported power, continuing only when there is surplus free power available.


In this mode, the vehicle will be charged at maximum power. This power can come from a renewable energy source or simply from the grid. The cost of charging an electric car also depends on numerous factors including mode and the car itself.

If you don’t have solar panels or wind generation, zappi will charge just like an ordinary Mode 3 charging point.
