Why is Shade Important to Charging
Excessive heat and cold can seriously impair the functionality of batteries to perform and accept an electrical charge. EV’s charging in direct sunlight can require up to 2kW more power and additional time to become fully charged vs EV’s charged in the shade.
In direct sunlight, EV’s cabin temperatures can reach in excess of 200° Fahrenheit. The solution is to incorporate Apollo Sunguard’s modular cantilever shade structures over the charging station and the EV parking area. Not only will the vehicle’s cabin temperature be significantly reduced, the EV will charge faster, more efficiently, use less kW’s, thus saving time & money. Furthermore, the attractive variety of colors options for Apollo Sunguard’s shade covers accentuate the location of the EV charging station, making the stations easy to find!
