So I ordered this product to take advantage of the integrated EV charger on my SolarEdge inverter. I was sold on the idea that I could get a solar system on my home first and then add the EV charging feature later without having to install any additional wires. It was a good thing too since I got a Tesla Model 3 not too soon after.
Installation was fairly straight forward. Mostly plug and play with a few extra steps, but nothing too difficult.
If you have a SolarEdge inverter with EV charging capabilities this is the cable you need.

I have a SetApp enabled SolarEdge HD Wave solar inverter with integrated EV Charger, so this was the cable I needed to charge an EV with. The SetApp app for Android was able to read the barcode on the charger, but was unable to activate the cable. I logged a support case with SolarEdge and they went ahead and activated the cable for me. This cable is proprietary SolarEdge at the inverter end and has a standard SAE J1772-2009 plug at the EV charger end. This allows it to work wih any EV, but some will require adapters. Teslas need an adapter and older EVs need a NEMA NEMA 14-50 adapter. In my case, I wanted to also use a welder from the inverter, so I used a SAE J1772-2009 to NEMA 6-50P adapter.
SolarEdge EV charger – an integrated electric car charger solar inverter for your home
SolarEdge is the most popular inverter manufacturer on the EnergySage Solar Marketplace – in the second half of 2017, two out of every three quotes offered to solar shoppers on EnergySage included SolarEdge products. Their newest innovation is the EV Charging Single Phase Inverter, which integrates a charger for your electric car directly into your solar panel system.
According to Lior Handelsman, VP of Marketing Product Strategy and Founder of SolarEdge, “SolarEdge’s EV charging inverter is really the first product that represents the paradigm shift that has occurred in solar over the last decade… We are very excited to launch the world’s first inverter that can charge a car from the sun.”
Why choose an integrated inverter charger option, rather than installing them separately?
Having a single integrated product means that you can monitor and manage your solar panels and your electric car charging simultaneously, directly from your phone. SolarEdge’s software can track your EV’s power usage separately from your solar production, and you can control your charging remotely.
If you own an EV, or are thinking about buying one, you’re an ideal candidate for the EV charging inverter
If you have an electric car or are about to buy one, the benefits are clear. But even if you don’t currently own an EV, there’s always the chance that you’ll buy one in a few years. An estimated 1 in 10 new cars sold will be electric by 2025, and solar PV system owners are more likely to purchase electric vehicles than the general population.
“Anyone going solar should think about adding EV charging,” said Handelsman. “If you don’t have an EV now, you will almost certainly have one over the 20 year lifespan of your solar energy system, so investing now and saving on purchase and installation costs makes sense.”
The EV charging inverter is also an easy way to install a second charger at your home in case you decide that your next car will be an EV. According to Handelsman, “Most homeowners may not realize that an integrated EV charger may be the only way to add a second charger for a second EV without a very expensive upgrade of the home’s main electricity panel.”
Already gone solar? You can retrofit your solar panel system with an EV charging inverter
If you already have a solar panel system, but need to replace your existing inverter, you can easily upgrade to SolarEdge’s EV charging option – the installation process is the same as installing a standard inverter. An added bonus: if your inverter is in need of replacement, upgrading to a SolarEdge option may boost your electricity output thanks to improved efficiency.
How to get a solar panel system with SolarEdge’s EV charging inverter
SolarEdge’s EV charging inverter is a new product, and launched in the spring of 2018 in North America. Companies in SolarEdge’s installer network – many of whom are submitting quotes to property owners on the EnergySage Solar Marketplace – are now installing the EV charging inverter for homeowners and businesses across the country. To get your own EV charging inverter, we recommend you register on EnergySage today and indicate your interest in an EV charging inverter in your preferences.

SolarEdge unveils bidirectional EV charger
SolarEdge’s new bidirectional DC-coupled electric-vehicle (EV) charger enables vehicle-to-home and vehicle-to-grid applications and can seamlessly integrate with its home energy systems. It is scheduled for release in the second half of 2024.
SolarEdge unveiled a bidirectional DC-coupled electric vehicle (EV) charger at Intersolar Europe last week in Munich, Germany.
The Israel-based inverter manufacturer’s DC-coupled architecture allows for simultaneous EV charging directly from solar, home battery storage, and the grid. The charger is connected to single- or three-phase inverters through a DC bus circuit which can be oversized by up to 200%, enabling charging the EV with excess PV. The charger has a charge/discharge rate of 12/24 kW and a peak efficiency of DC to DC of 99%.
The new charger will enable solar-powered vehicle-to-home (V2H) and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services. It will become commercially available in the second half of 2024.
V2G applications allow automatic charging and discharging of the EV battery based on dynamic utility prices. This enables homeowners to receive payments from their electricity supplier by discharging stored EV battery power back to the grid during demand response events.
Additionally, users can use the EV battery to back up their homes during outages, demonstrating a V2H application. The battery has a capacity of up to 50 kWh.
“The charger will be compatible with both 400V and 800V EV powertrains via a standard CSS connector,” Solar Edge said in a statement.
The device measures 24.4 by 13.4 by 7.87 inches, weighs 48.8 pounds, and features a 23-foot cable. It can operate in temperatures ranging from.22 F to 122 F and features an IP-65 rated enclosure for indoor and outdoor use.

We need MORE of these! Remember, the biggest advantage of EV’s and FCV’s is their potential as “Dual-use” systems. Think of the advantages of portable power during emergencies, etc. Internal combustion engines (ICE’s) don’t give us this important option…only a lot of maintenance–along with all the carbon.

SE-HD-wave-single-phase-inverter.pdfSingle Phase Inverters with HD-Wave Technology
The SolarEdge single phase inverter with HD-Wave technology breaks the mold of traditional solar inverters. Winner of the prestigious 2016 Intersolar Award and the renowned 2018 Edison Award, the single phase inverter is specifically designed to work with SolarEdge power optimizers. It comes with a built-in DC safety switch, integrated Rapid shutdown, and features a standard 12-year warranty extendable to 20 or 25 years.
SolarEdge’s Innovative Inverter Topology
Because Maximum Power Point Tracking and voltage management are handled separately for each solar module by the SolarEdge power optimizer, the single phase inverter is only responsible for DC to AC inversion. Consequently, it is a simpler, more cost effective, more reliable solar inverter. The fixed string voltage ensures operation at the highest efficiency at all times independent of string length and temperature.
In addition to its functionality as a DC-optimized PV inverter, the single phase inverter also manages battery and system energy as part of SolarEdge’s StorEdge solution.
HD-Wave Technology: A New Era for PV Inverters
SolarEdge’s latest generation of single phase inverters are designed using a novel power conversion technology that is based on a distributed switching and powerful DSP processing. The inverter is able to synthesize a clean sine wave that leads to a dramatic reduction in the magnetics and heavy cooling elements. The result is an even smaller and lighter inverter for simplified shipping and storing, and easy one-person installation. The record-breaking 99% efficiency allows more energy production for an improved ROI.
HD-Wave Inverters Now Available with Integrated Production and Consumption Monitoring

The SolarEdge Smart EV Charger Makes It Easy To Drive On Sunshine — CleanTechnica Review
SolarEdge was a late entrant to the world of electric vehicle chargers, but after spending some time with the SolarEdge Smart EV Charger, the company is already a serious contender in the space.
Having built its business around high quality, efficient solar inverters, SolarEdge was a late entrant to the world of electric vehicle chargers, but after spending some time with the SolarEdge Smart EV Charger, the company is already a serious contender in the space.
Durable, Future-Proofed EV Charging
Most residential electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE, also known as an EV charger) are little more than adapters that plug into the home electrical network with an adapter to charge the vehicle. Charging an EV is not rocket science, but because they consume such a large chunk of power, the potential exists to do a lot more with them. Because electric vehicles consume such a large chunk of power, there is an opportunity to optimize the energy consumed by a home by adding intelligence to EV chargers. SolarEdge’s leadership in solar inverters positioned it well to inject intelligence into the world of EV chargers and that’s exactly what it did.

SolarEdge sent us one of its standalone Smart EV Chargers for us to run through the paces, and I have to say, I’m impressed and even more convinced that inverters are the most exciting part of the renewable home of the future right now. Right off the bat, it is clear this thing is built to last. The thick 25′ long charging cable looks like it could withstand decades of use and abuse in a garage or public charger installation, and the thick case on the unit itself looks extremely durable. If anything, it’s a bit too thick and my wife commented that she preferred other chargers simply because of their more flexible, easier to manipulate charging cables. We installed the unit in our garage for the test, but it is also rated for outdoor use, which is fantastic.
Disclaimer: SolarEdge installed a Smart EV Charger for us free of charge for the purposes of this review.
Our Tesla Solar Roof system came with two 5-kilowatt Delta inverters that don’t seem to have any connectivity to speak of, so we were not able to test the integration of the Smart EV Charger with SolarEdge Inverters, but that is perhaps the most exciting functionality of this unit. When installed in a home with a solar system powered by SolarEdge inverters, the Smart EV Charger talks to the inverters and can dynamically, intelligently charge an EV with the excess solar generation from the rooftop system. The SolarEdge Smart EV Charger builds on the fundamental premise that solar and electric vehicles are complimentary technologies. 40% of EV owners have solar installed and the new EV charger gives solar installers and EV owners the option to install an EV charger alongside a new or existing solar installation. For solar installers, it could represent an upsell opportunity, while giving owners the ability to add an EV charger at a lower cost.
At the center of the unit, a bright LED light ring makes it easy to confirm at a glance that the vehicle is charging with a ring of green lights. Alternately, if there’s an issue, the LED lights turn red, orange, or even purple, depending on what’s happening.
Installing the Smart EV Charger was very straightforward. It comes with a wired pigtail on the end, so installing it was a simple matter of mounting it to the wall near an appropriate 50 amp outlet and plugging it in. Installing it on a 50 amp circuit ensures the unit is able to pull its peak of 40 amps, pushing 9.6 kilowatts of power to the car. For safety, EV chargers should only draw 80% of the maximum current a circuit is rated for, so be sure to take this into account when having a new circuit installed or selecting an EV charger for your home.
After physically installing the unit, it wants to be paired to a local Wi-Fi connection. This is done from the SolarEdge app and requires just a basic configuration. I had to walk through the process a few times for it to take, but it was still only a matter of a few minutes before it was connected to the ‘net.
The SolarEdge App
The My SolarEdge app lets the homeowner view the current charging session, stop and start a session, review charging history, and set up more advanced features like scheduled charging and solar charging (where applicable).
We have two EVs in our household, a 2014 Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive and a Tesla Model 3, and we were able to charge both on the new charger at its peak power of 40 amps / 9.6 kW. Owners can label each car in the household if there are more than one, and the app recognizes which car is plugged in for tracking purposes.
It’s not a complex app and does exactly what you need, with few frills to confuse the process. advanced users have the ability to export charging session history, if desired. That’s helpful for those looking to track actual power consumption by their vehicles over time, whether it be to keep track of the fuel bill or to otherwise.
Driving on Sunshine
The SolarEdge Smart EV Charger works fine as a standalone EV charger, but it really starts to get exciting when installed alongside a SolarEdge-powered solar system. In this configuration, it can charge an EV using just the excess solar generation coming from the roof, minimizing or eliminating the need to feed power back into the grid.
For areas where feed-in tariffs make feeding power back to the grid a less attractive option or don’t allow it at all, this can be a huge benefit. For homeowners trying to maximize the consumption of power generated on-site behind the meter, it directly contributes to the vision of a more sustainable home. I mean, who doesn’t want to drive using just the power of the sun?
