Massachusetts EV Chargers
Energy Efficient EV Charger Installations in Taunton, Rhode Island, & Southern CT
Rising gas prices and environmental concerns have more people than ever buying electric vehicles. When you have an electric vehicle, you need a place to charge it.
Beacon Solar Construction, Inc. offers EV charger installation in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Southern CT. We can help you charge your vehicle without the need for fossil fuel-generated electricity.
Using Solar Energy for Your Electric Vehicle
Electric vehicles reduce your dependence on expensive fossil fuels.
Electric cars make more financial sense than ever with constantly increasing gas prices.
Solar EV chargers in Massachusetts enable you to power your vehicle with clean, renewable energy from the sun.
This is cheaper and better for the environment than using electricity from the grid, which is often generated by fossil fuels.
How many solar panels do you need?
The number of solar panels needed to charge your electric vehicle depends on the mileage rating of your vehicle, the size of the battery in your car, and the amount of driving you do each day.
We custom design solar panel systems to accommodate the unique requirements of every customer.
Whether you want to power just your electric vehicle or your entire home and car, we can design a system to suit your needs.
How does a solar-powered EV charger work?
Solar panels collect sunlight and convert it into electricity through photovoltaic cells.
This electricity is then either used to charge an electric vehicle directly or stored in batteries for later use when the sun is not shining.
Rebates & Incentives for Your EV Charger
If you are considering a solar EV charger, you are probably aware of the significant cost savings and environmental benefits.
You may not be aware of the many incentives that are available for installing an EV charging station in your home.
Some incentives are federal and others are offered by the state of Massachusetts.
You may qualify for incentives that include:
- A federal tax credit of up to $7,500 for purchasing an electric vehicle and a 30% tax credit for solar panel system installation
- MassEVIP grants that cover up to 60% of the cost of EV equipment for commercial businesses with 15 or more employees or properties with at least 10 residential units
- The Massachusetts Offers Rebates for Electric Vehicles (MOR-EV) program provides up to $1,500 in rebates for electric car purchases
These tax credits and incentives can help offset the costs of purchasing an electric vehicle and installing EV chargers at your home or business.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have about installation costs and various incentives that may be available to you.
Financing options are also available.
What types of EV chargers are available?
There are three main types:
- Level 1 (120V)
- Level 2 (240V)
- Level 3 (DC fast chargers)
Level 1 chargers are slower and usually come with the car, while Level 2 and Level 3 chargers are faster and often found at public charging stations.
How long does it take to charge an electric car?
The charging time depends on the charger's power level, your car's battery capacity, and its state of charge.
Level 1 chargers can take several hours, while Level 2 chargers can charge most EVs overnight.
DC fast chargers can provide a significant charge in about 30 minutes.
