The 793KW solar array on Filtrine’s roof produces more electricity than Filtrine could possibly use when the sun is shining. Rather than put all of that energy back on the grid, Filtrine installed a Level 2 EV charging station in front of Filtrine’s headquarters for electric vehicles (EVs). The Level 2 EV station provides 10-20 mile driving range for one hour of charging.
Now employees or members of the public are welcome to put those extra electrons to good use. Revision Energy (who built the latest Filtrine solar array) installed the charging station.
Hopefully this will inspire others at Filtrine or in the community to invest in an electric vehicle.
