Charging electric vehicles using residential rooftop solar power plants

Ossiaco’s ‘Dcbel’ is a bi-directional home EV charger which allows V2X charging during blackouts and emergencies. In addition the charger also integrates any available solar panel installation into the charging system to power the vehicle creating a complete backup system during emergencies while fast charging an EV during normal days.

  • The seamless integration provided by Dcbel negates any need for a separate solar inverter to charge an electric car. The charger also provides AC and DC charging methods making it the first home-installed EV fast charger in the market.

Tesla quietly updated its website to include new details about its standalone inverter product – a device that converts the direct current (DC) power produced from rooftop solar panels and batteries into useful alternating current (AC) power, allowing solar energy to be used by household appliances or exported to the grid.

  • The addition of the standalone inverter to the Tesla product line up is a key step towards establishing a completely integrated solar energy, battery storage and EV charging solution from Tesla.
  • Tesla also  said that the new inverter would be compatible with both standard traditional solar panels, as well as Tesla’s own solar roof technology, which integrates solar cells into roofing tiles.
  • According to specifications published by Tesla, the inverter will be offered in two sizes, with a 3.8kW and a 7.6kW capacity inverter being offered. The system will be built for both indoor and outdoor installation.
