The device is Wi-Fi-enabled and includes smart control and monitoring capabilities. The charger can also seamlessly integrate into Enphase’s solar and battery system to help homeowners maximise electricity cost savings by charging directly from solar energy.
“As more and more consumers make the switch to electric vehicles, they’re looking for smart solutions to reliably charge their vehicles at home without increasing their energy bills,” said Dale Rolph, director of business development at Pacific Sun Tech. “Enphase is pushing the envelope on total home energy management with the introduction of the IQ EV Charger, which gives homeowners more control over when and how their vehicles are charged to provide maximum cost savings.”
Enphase Energy delivers a safety-certified and all-weather lineup of EV chargers, including hardwired or plug-in options with a wide range of power configurations. The Wi-Fi-enabled IQ EV Chargers come in multiple power levels ranging from 32 to 64 amperes and are equipped with a J1772 connector for universal compatibility. Fast charging options are available, providing up to 31 and 61 miles of range per hour and resulting in a full charge for EVs overnight. The impact-resistant design and National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) 4-rated enclosure make them reliable for daily use in most weather conditions. All of Enphase’s EV charging solutions are safety certified by ETL and include an industry-leading five-year limited warranty along with 24/7 customer support from Enphase.
“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, 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. My customers will love it.”
Installers and distributors in North America can order the new IQ EV Charger immediately, with production shipments expected later in the month. North American consumers can now buy the Enphase IQ EV Charger directly from the Enphase Store.
