Maxeon Solar Technologies has partnered with global electric vehicle (EV) charging solution provider Star Charge to include Star Charge EV charging products as part of Maxeon’s SunPower One home energy solution.
The partnership will combine Star Charge’s expertise in the research, development and manufacturing of EV charging technology with Maxeon’s clean energy technology and consumer experience.
It is hoped the agreement will enable Maxeon to enhance the homeowner benefits of solar production and home energy consumption by adding EV charging management.
The EV charging products are expected to be available and integrated in the SunPower One home energy solution in selected European markets in the first quarter of 2023, Maxeon said, adding that it will be rolled out to other markets during the remainder of 2023.
“Maxeon’s SunPower One makes clean energy adoption simpler through a fully integrated suite of products that allows consumers to take control of their domestic energy production and consumption, enabling financial and carbon savings,” said interim CEO of Maxeon Solar Technologies, Mark Babcock, who spoke with our sister site PV Tech about the company’s plans in the US while at the RE+ trade show in Anaheim, California last month.
“We’re thrilled to see Maxeon taking an innovative approach to improve the experience customers can have with solar energy,” said Toni Cheng, CEO of Star Charge. “We are confident this partnership will help to facilitate the uptake of electric vehicles in parallel with solar panels.”
