Solar powered charging station, free charging to be offered in Alpharetta, Georgia.


Electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are popping up around metro Atlanta including a new one planned for Alpharetta. The corporate office of Solar Energy USA is planning to unveil solar powered EV charging free to the public. The company, which is Georgia's largest residential solar provider, runs off 100% solar energy and sells excess power back to their utility provider, Sawnee EMC, each month.

A public unveiling is planned for early December at the Solar Energy USA office off McFarland Road. The level 2 charging station being installed will fully refuel a Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, or another plug-in EV in four to eight hours.

Solar Energy USA is dedicated to educating the public by example. "The main reason Solar Energy USA is installing a charging station is to demonstrate how we can utilize solar power as an energy source to charge an electric car. We currently have about four customers with electric cars in Atlanta, and our charging station will allow them and anyone else to come recharge their vehicle while touring the warehouse and learning about our affordable solar solutions" said product salesman Howard Orchow.

Solar Energy USA is a national sales and installation company that helps residential and commercial customers achieve their autonomy goals through energy efficiency and energy independence.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
