Charge your Electric Vehicle from Solar. This kit in an on grid kit designed for charging your car during the day. The car port will provide most of the power to charge the car on good sunny days with the rest being provided by the grid.
IRFTS Shadow Solar mounting frames are compatible with all types of 60 cells - 6" PV modules fitted in a landscape orientation, and can be used for ground or wall mounted installations. It is also compatible with optimisers and micro-inverters.
The well-designed configuration is a watertight solution that allows a high level of ventilation to maximise the efficiency of the PV installation and is the most complete solution currently available on the market.
Ideal for energy production and sun protection, the mounting structure has a range of applications for residential, commercial, public, agricultural and industrial building such as a carport, canopy, patio awning, lobby entrance, bike shelter etc.
The anthracite grey aluminium profile includes a rainwater harvesting network, under-panel protection and optional panel side flashing. The structure also allows modules to be fitted easily from underneath, reducing H&S risks with installation.

Frequently asked questions...
What size modules will fit?
60 Cell modules within dimensions below
Length 1635mm to 1676mm
Width 986mm to 1001mm
Depth 30mm to 46mm
What is the roof pitch of the carport?
Pitch is 5 degrees
NOTE – Please check with the module manufacturers installation manual that your chosen panel can be installed at this inclination.
How is it fixed to the ground?
Each leg will need to be buried in to concrete footings to secure to the ground
Please ensure you adhere to the manufacturers installation instructions
Do you need to inform planning or building control?
This can vary according to area so always check with the local departments to ensure compliance
Are there any additional options?
We sell additional flashing covers for the sides of the modules (not the carport) which are available at an extra cost
Download the datasheet from the IRFTS website for full product details.
The new V2 model is BS 7671 18th Edition ready and comes with integrated RCD and Earth fault detection. This eliminates the need to install an expensive Type B RCD or an earth electrode.
Zappi works like any regular charging point but has special eco charging modes which will benefit homeowners with grid-tied microgeneration systems.
The ECO+ charging mode will automatically adjust the charging rate to only make use of surplus power that would otherwise be exported from the property - which means that charging your car is effectively completely free!
The ECO mode is similar, but allows you to specify a minimum that should be put into the car by a particular time, in order to minimise use of imported power but still ensure you have sufficient charge to use the car.
In FAST charge mode, zappi operates like any ordinary EV charging station.
Zappi is a Mode 3 charging station, compatible with all electric vehicles that comply with SAE J1772, EN62196 and EN61851 plug-in electric vehicle standards.
If installing under the OLEV scheme, the myenergi hub is also required.

Double Insulated UV protected solar cable
Max load: 50A
MC4 Solar Connector - Price is per MC4 pair simply select the quantity as the number of MC4 pairs you want.
These are the standard connectors used on most solar panels.
TUV certified, brand new, water /weather proof rubber seal that can ensure excellent electrical contact for life time service.
The metal pin is made from high quality machined copper and sealed tip (compare to the cheap sheet metal pin) that can ensure excellent electrical contact for life time service.
Build in press tabs for easy disconnect, no tool is needed. 25A max load.
Wires should be crimped or soldered into the pins and care should be taken to get the correct pin into the correct connector. Once the pin is pushed into the connector it is difficult to remove without the correct tooling.
