Enphase Energy, a supplier of microinverter-based solar and battery systems, has launched its new Enphase IQ EV Charger in the US and Canada. The IQ is designed to seamlessly integrate into Enphase’s solar and battery system to help homeowners maximize savings by charging their EVs directly from solar photovoltaic systems.
The Enphase IQ is WiFi-enabled and includes smart control and monitoring capabilities. It can be programmed to charge an EV from the grid or from solar panels, depending on which is cheaper at the time.
The IQ EV Chargers come in multiple power levels, from 32 amperes to 64 amperes, and are equipped with a J1772 connector. The NEMA 4-rated enclosure is suitable for most weather conditions. All of Enphase’s EV charging solutions are safety-certified by ETL and include a 5-year limited warranty along with 24/7 customer support.
“As a solar contractor that has installed Enphase microinverters for my customers since 2009, I’m glad to see the IQ EV Chargers join Enphase’s product ecosystem,” said Louis Woofenden, owner and Engineering Director of Net Zero Solar. “I was excited to try out this improved smart charger on the Enphase platform with ClipperCreek heritage. It’s so helpful to be able to easily schedule charge times, manually start and stop charging my EV, and monitor my EV energy use—all from the Enphase App on my phone.”
“The IQ EV Charger is a versatile product that offers our customers a wide range of options for power configurations and charging speeds to suit their individual needs—all with unparalleled durability and reliability,” said Matt Young, CEO at Revolution Solar. “Also, the integration with the Enphase App gives homeowners the flexibility to control how their homes and vehicles are powered 24/7 and helps ensure peace of mind their vehicles will be fully charged when needed.”
Installers and distributors in North America can order the new IQ EV Charger immediately, and consumers can buy it directly from the Enphase Store.
