A few things are needed to determine the cost of installing an EV charger powered by solar panels including:

  • Knowing the amount of combined electricity needed to power both the home and the vehicle
  • The cost will be the amount of additional solar panels that may be needed to power your home and car plus the cost of bringing the vehicle to a full charge each time
As of 2020, a typical solar panel produces around 320 watts of power.
