Solar EV Charging

Save £328 per year with Solar Charging

Now in preview | Launching March 2023

Use our app to enjoy zero-cost, zero-carbon, solar-powered EV charging without costly hardware upgrades.

Get that solar-powered feeling

If you’ve invested in home solar panels, or are just about to, this one’s for you. 

  • Right on schedule
    Use local solar forecasts to automatically schedule your EV charging sessions.
  • Works with existing hardware
    Just tell us the size of your array and plug into self-generated solar power.
  • Free, green energy
    Charge with free solar instead of grid power to reduce your energy bill.
  • Make every kWh count
    Soak up and reduce or remove your reliance on dirty fossil fuels.

Two powerful options

Our app has two solar options that make it easy to soak up the sun.

Solar Only

Ramp the electric current of your charge up or down to meet your self-generated solar output for a truly zero-cost, zero-carbon without using energy from the grid.

Works with Indra, waEV-charge and Rolec chargers.
More integrations coming soon.  

Solar Smart

Charge with Solar Only when the sun is shining, then pull in grid energy when required to ensure a full charge. You get the cheapest, greenest charge every time, guaranteed.

Works with all compatible cars and chargers.

Fantastic! We’ve been so impressed with this app. It works well 99.9% of the time. However, most impressive is their response when there has been an issue. We’ve emailed and had a quick response. These guys haven’t put a foot wrong.

Excellent Excellent app; exactly what I was looking for. Our TOU rate doesn’t get cheap until 9:00pm, when I want to be watching TV, not going in the garage to plug the car in. The app makes sure the charging happens overnight.
