EV ownership is great... but what if it could be better?

EV ownership is pretty awesome, right? The smooth, quiet ride, the petrol station freedom, the clean air and swift acceleration... But let's be honest, it's not perfect. EV ownership does have challenges...

What if these challenges could be minimised though, or even removed entirely? That would be pretty compelling!

We believe solar power is the answer to blowing away your EV-related blues and have you driving on sunshine in no time.

But first things first — particularly if you’re reading this and don't yet own an EV yet — you might be thinking, "what do you mean challenges?", "what are these EV-related downsides of which you speak?". If you already own an EV, then we think at least one or two of these are going to resonate…

Love your EV but hate high electricity bills? Excited about your EV’s zero emissions, but saddened by the carbon footprint of how you fuel it? Reassured by the reliability of your EV, but stressed out by unpredictable electricity costs? Energised by the petrol-free freedom your EV, but tired being tied down to car park charging? Happy with your EV's eco-friendliness, but want to do more to tackle climate change...

The struggle is real. But we don’t think choosing clean green tech should have to come with such challenges or compromises, and the great news is, it doesn’t have to!

By harnessing the wonders of clean, green solar energy, you can realise the full potential of EV ownership - making it more affordable, more eco-friendly, and convenient.

Sounds pretty exciting, doesn't it? Well, we certainly think so, which is why we've written this article to explain exactly why solar energy is the ideal match your EV has been waiting for. So, let's dive into the brilliant benefits of pairing your EV with the wonders of solar energy:

Love your EV and enjoy stupendous savings by running your EV on sunshine?

Let’s talk about cold, hard cash. We might not want to focus on cost when it comes to making eco-conscious choices, but it would be naive to say it’s not a massive factor. In fact, it’s probably the most important factor for most of us, which is one of the things that makes solar power so exciting.

By installing solar panels on your home, you can generate your own clean energy to power not only your home but also charge your EV. This means you can reduce your dependence on the grid and save money on your electricity bills.

Excited about your EV’s zero emissions and celebrate reducing your carbon footprint even further?

Charging your EV with solar energy significantly reduces your carbon footprint. While electric vehicles produce zero emissions on the road, charging them with electricity from the grid can still contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. By using solar-generated electricity, you can ensure your EV's power source is as clean and green as possible, helping you to make an even more significant positive impact on the environment.

Reassured by the reliability of your EV and gain greater energy independence and security?

When you generate your own solar power, you become less reliant on the grid and more self-sufficient. This energy independence not only provides you with more control over your energy consumption but also increases your resilience against power outages or disruptions in grid supply. By having a solar panel system in place, you can rest assured that you'll always have access to a reliable source of power for both your home and your EV.

Plus, with the UK's electricity prices being notoriously unpredictable, solar energy can provide you with a stable, cost-effective energy source that protects you from fluctuating rates.

Energised by the petrol-free freedom your EV and enhance the convenience of charging your EV?

By installing solar panels and potentially adding a home battery storage system, you can charge your EV at home, making it more convenient than ever. No more waiting in line at public charging stations or having to plan your trips around charging points. With your solar-powered charging system, you can simply plug in your EV whenever you're at home and enjoy the freedom that comes with always having a fully charged vehicle.

Happy with your EV's eco-friendliness but ready to make an even bigger impact in the fight against climate change?

As an EV owner, you're already making a significant contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and fighting climate change. But by powering your vehicle with solar energy, you can do even more to help the environment. By transitioning to clean, renewable energy sources like solar power, you're actively supporting the UK's efforts to achieve net-zero emissions and combat climate change!


Combining the benefits of solar energy with EV ownership can make an already great experience even better. By harnessing the power of the sun to charge your electric vehicle, you'll enjoy increased savings, reduced carbon emissions, and greater convenience, all while contributing to a cleaner, greener future. So why not make the switch to solar and see the transformation it brings to your EV experience?
