A self-contained solar electric vehicle ecosystem is proposed to address the need for environmental and utility friendly electric vehicle charging stations necessary to support wide scale adoption of electric vehicles. These stations will require the use of a master controller that will allow for electric vehicles to be charged with minimal impact to the utility grid while reducing the carbon footprint of the vehicle owners through the use of solar power. As more electric vehicles take to the road, utilities are faced with the challenge of being able to handle the increased load without having to make major changes to the existing electrical infrastructure.
