Clean Energy Integration: Powering EV Chargers with Solar Energy

August 25, 2023

Sunrise Power Solutions proudly announces the successful completion of a groundbreaking PV Solar project, in partnership with Johnson Controls Inc., for the Village of Patchogue. The project, which includes innovative PV Solar Rooftop systems and a cutting-edge 259.2kWDC (225kWAC) PV Solar Carport System at the Village of Patchogue's Theater, marks a significant step forward in harnessing the sun's energy to power electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.

The centerpiece of this remarkable achievement is the PV Solar Carport System located at the Village's Theater, which is equipped with two state-of-the-art EV Chargers. This system seamlessly transforms sunlight into clean, renewable energy, which is then efficiently transmitted to the EV Chargers.

Here's how it works:

Solar Energy Capture: The PV Solar Carport System is equipped with advanced photovoltaic panels that convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. These panels, strategically positioned on the carport's structure, harness the sun's energy throughout the day.

Inverter Conversion: The DC electricity generated by the solar panels is then converted into alternating current (AC) electricity through advanced inverters. This AC electricity is the same type used to power the grid and appliances, ensuring compatibility with the EV Car Chargers.

Powering EV Chargers: The converted AC electricity is seamlessly channeled into the Village of Patchogue's Theater, where the EV Chargers are conveniently located under the PV Solar Carport canopy. These chargers are designed to efficiently and rapidly charge electric vehicles, enabling EV owners to conveniently power their vehicles using clean solar energy.

This revolutionary approach not only highlights the synergy between solar power and electric vehicle infrastructure but also brings forth a host of environmental benefits. By utilizing clean energy from the sun to charge electric vehicles, Sunrise Power Solutions and the Village of Patchogue are jointly contributing to:

Reduced Carbon Footprint: Solar-powered EV charging significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions, as the energy source is completely emissions-free. This paves the way for a cleaner and healthier environment for current and future generations.

Promotion of Sustainable Transportation: Encouraging the use of electric vehicles aligns seamlessly with the broader goal of promoting sustainable transportation. As more EVs take to the roads, the demand for clean energy sources like solar power increases, leading to a more sustainable energy ecosystem.

Local Community Impact: The Village of Patchogue's commitment to renewable energy and electric vehicle infrastructure sets a commendable example for neighboring communities. It demonstrates the practicality and benefits of incorporating clean energy solutions into everyday life.

Sunrise Power Solutions remains dedicated to pushing the boundaries of clean energy integration and applauds the Village of Patchogue for its visionary approach towards sustainable progress.
