Here are a couple of photos of my solar charging station for our Clarity PHEV. One photo shows a ground mounted solar panel array. There are two arrays with six panels each, for a total of 12 panels. At 250 watts for each panel, we have 3000 watts of production capacity. The other photo is of the charging station showing the charge controller, inverter, master switch panel, and AC outlets. The inverter can output a maximum 4Kw. Directly below the charging station (but not pictured) are eight deep cycle lead-acid AGM batteries with a total usable capacity of approximately 7.2Kwh, so the car can be charged approximately 50% using the storage batteries going through the inverter. This is an off-the grid system not connected to the utility. It has both level 1 and level 2 charging capabilities, but using the level 2 capability requires full sun on both panel arrays, as well as additional stored power from the deep cycle batteries. The pre-built charging station from Northern Arizona Wind and Sun was $3800. The batteries and wiring were $1800, and the two solar arrays were $1300 each. So the total investment was $6900. We use the Clarity for all local driving and occasional longer trips. So far, our miles are courtesy of the sun, with a very rare resort to to a few Kw from utility power on weeks with extended cloud cover. The charging station has many different ways of tracking power production/usage and after a few months of use, we’ll report back on that data.
