SolarEdge’s electric vehicle (EV) consumers now have the option of controlling the company’s EV-charging solar inverter through Google’s AI-powered virtual assistant, Google Assistant.

SolarEdge is one of the first companies to integrate EV charging with the Google Assistant. Through Google Assistant, SolarEdge customers can now use the company’s EV-focused PV inverter, which offers up to six times faster charging than standard Level 1 chargers through its solar boost mode. With the Google Assistant integration and its smart speaker capabilities,  EV charging will be simpler for consumers and answers demand for smart energy solutions, according to the company.

Lior Handelsman, SolarEdge’s founder and VP of marketing and product strategy, said: “Smart homes have mainly been about convenience and interconnectivity, but the next step of the smart home is integrating smart energy management, such as EV charging. By merging the simplicity of smart homes with the value of smart energy through this collaboration with Google, SolarEdge is leading the way in making the power of smart solar energy more accessible to more people.”

Going forward, SolarEdge plans to add functionality to the Google Assistant commands, including the option for consumers to ask about charging status, checking average miles charged in the charging session and pre-schedule charging.
