Electric Vehicle Chargers
At Whitney Electrical and Solar, we offer two EV Charging options, Zappi and also the SolarEdge EV intergrated inverter.
The Zappi EV charger is a great add on for both those with solar installations and for those without, as it will use grid power, or solar production, or both to charge your vehicle.
Our second option is the SolarEdge EV intergrated inverter which is perfect for those with an existing SolarEdge optimised solar system and those looking to install an optimised solar system as it means saving the need to install both a solar inverter and an EV charger separately. It will utilise the systems excess solar production to charge your vehicle, only taking from the grid if there is not an excess supply from the solar production. If you have an existing solar system installed that is not SolarEdge, please contact us to discuss an EV charger best suited to your lifestyle and solar system.
Zappi EV Charger
Zappi has special eco charging modes which will benefit homeowners with grid-tied microgeneration systems, such as solar generation, however can be used with just a grid connected power supply as it is an AC coupled charger. The charging current is automatically and continually adjusted in response to on-site generation and household power consumption.
Some of the features of the Zappi EV charger are:
- 3 charging modes: ECO, ECO+ & FAST
- Optimises microgeneration self-consumption
- Works with solar PV or wind turbine systems
- Economy tariff sense input
- Programmable timer function
- Charge and event logging
- Pin-code lock function
- Built-in RCD protection

SolarEdge EV Intergrated Inverter Charger
Another option we offer for EV charging is our SolarEdge EV intergrated inverter charger, this is the worlds first EV charging inverter.
Key benefits to this charger are:
- Combine sun and grid power for 4 X faster charging than standard EV chargers using home power
- Reduces workload and costs of installing a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter as it is intergrated
- An EV-ready solution, compatible with multiple EV connectors
- Maximises self-consumption by using excess PV for EV charging
- Easy inverter commissioning via SetApp while customers can monitor performance via the homeowner app
- Built-in meter enables separate tracking of EV power usage for visibility and control
- 12-year warranty, extendable to 20 or 25 years
- Demand-Response ready
SolarEdge will be releasing a standalone EV charging option late 2021. More information on this will updated once it is released.
