SolarEdge EV charger inverter

SolarEdge says its EV-charging solar inverter — already the first of its kind out there — now works with Google Assistant to make EV charging simpler for consumers and to better integrate all smart home solutions.

“Smart homes have mainly been about convenience and interconnectivity, but the next step of the smart home is integrating smart energy management, such as EV charging,” stated Lior Handelsman, SolarEdge’s Founder and VP of Marketing and Product Strategy. “By merging the simplicity of smart homes with the value of smart energy through this collaboration with Google, SolarEdge is leading the way in making the power of smart solar energy more accessible to more people”

Consumers can now tell the Google Assistant to start and stop EV charging. SolarEdge plans to add functionality to the Google Assistant commands, including inquiring about charging status, checking average miles charged in the charging session, and pre-schedule charging.

SolarEdge’s EV charging solar inverter offers up to six times faster charging than standard Level 1 chargers through its innovative solar boost mode.
