Phoenix Contact USA
Solar Charging Carport
Headquarters - Middletown, PA - $45,700
Phoenix Contact's solar charging carport is just one of thousands of ways Phoenix products can be integrated. This charging carport includes 12 south-facing solar panels, Apollo Solar inverter and Concorde AGM batteries that collect sunlight during the day. The placement of the solar panels allows for optimal light collection, with an additional 4KW of battery reserve for the electric vehicle.
The advantage of a solar-powered charging station over conventional charging stations is that it does not rely on power from a utility company, thus putting no additional demand on the grid. The use of a solar-powered charging station saves the consumer money over time and requires little to no lifetime maintenance. Although this is a prototype, when combined with a mass production, it becomes a cost effective solution.
