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.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
