SolarCity says it has partnered with ClipperCreek to provide electric vehicle (EV) chargers that are compatible with all new EVs. ClipperCreek's UL-listed chargers are designed for use with the Chevy Volt, Ford Transit Connect, Nissan Leaf, Tesla Roadster and all SAE-compatible plug-in vehicles that are soon to be released.
SolarCity will initially install ClipperCreek EV chargers through its 24 operations centers nationwide. Pricing for home or business installation of a ClipperCreek 240-volt Level II EV charger, including the charger, starts at $1,500.
‘We are pleased to partner with SolarCity to help increase the number of homes and businesses that can run electric cars on renewable energy,’ says Dave Packard, president of ClipperCreek. ‘Roughly 40 percent of residential EV owners have solar, and we expect these environmental and economic benefits to expand with the coming proliferation of electric cars and increasing use of solar power.’
