Enteligent Accepting Pre-Orders for World’s First DC-to-DC Solar EV Charger

10 May 2024

Enteligent Inc., developer of solar-powered electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE) and solar power optimization technologies, is accepting pre-orders for the world’s first solar-powered DC-to-DC charger, the Enteligent TLCEV T1 EVSE. This device provides convenient and affordable daytime charging directly from on-site solar generation, fostering a fundamental shift in energy consumption habits so solar power can be used to charge where it’s generated.

“If you’re charging your EV at night, you’re not using clean energy. Most EV owners plug in at night when peak demand is provided by fossil fuels,” said Enteligent co-founder and CEO Sean Burke. "Enteligent’s solution offers convenient EV charging, so EV drivers can shift to daytime charging directly from solar panels and top up for free while the sun shines. The TLCEV chargers simply connect to a solar canopy anywhere and generate clean power.”

Powered directly from the sun, the TLCEV T1 charger’s convenient design makes it easy to integrate EV charging into solar canopies and carports located at residences, office parking lots, campuses, agricultural locales, and construction sites. Since the chargers do not rely on the grid, they do not require lengthy permitting processes and avoid complicated grid integration.

The direct DC-coupled charging provides NACS & CCS-1 options for consumers, making clean solar widely accessible.

Enteligent’s TLCEV chargers can supply up to 12.5 kW of fast DC charging – two times faster than many AC Level 2 EV chargers. The TLCEV T1 12.5 kW DC Charger also eliminates the DC-to-AC-to-DC conversion losses, resulting in up to 20% energy savings.
