As per Vermont Biz, the new co-branded home EV chargers extend Sunrun’s suite of energy management solutions for growing electric vehicle demands.
“With one-third of Enel X Way EV charger owners using solar to power their homes, there’s no denying the strong correlation between solar adopters and EV owners,” says Chris Baker, head of Enel X Way North America. “Not only does this partnership mark a pivotal convergence between two adjacent industries, the ability to combine efforts and use solar energy to power charging also furthers our progress toward national decarbonization targets. We’re honored to partner with Sunrun to offer an affordable, smart EV charging solution for climate-conscious customers.”
Enel X Way’s Level 2 EV chargers work seamlessly with Sunrun’s home solar solutions. It allows customers to charge their vehicles at home using solar energy. In addition, it gives potential cost savings to customers and provides a way to manage home energy consumption.
“Home solar and EVs are the perfect match,” said Mary Powell, Chief Executive Officer of Sunrun. “EV owners want to charge their vehicles with a more cost-effective, clean, and reliable energy source —saving money and time with home charging convenience. By combining Enel X Way’s EV charging expertise and Sunrun’s ability to right-size home solar systems, we’re helping prepare customers for a carbon-free energy future.”
