My residence has parking signficantly distant from the buildings, under a carport. So there is NO electrical grid access, and putting in a line at that distance would be both logistically challenging and VERY expensive. However, I was looking at the setup and brainstorming. I could easily throw a few cheapo solar panels on the top of the car port, run a cord down, bolt an inverter to one of the posts, and have a plug in spot. I have looked at a couple kits that would run me about $300. Given location, I think I could secure these items, and I could convince the HOA to let me do it. Adding batteries would, however, not be possible on either front. My main question.. Is there any reason not to do this? I mean, Its not going to be a big system, and I would usually only catch the last few hours of sunlight at night, then the first few in the morning before I head to work, so even at only a few hundred bucks to set it up, it would take quite a while to break even. But Im more interested in those extra miles of EV driving than the money (and it would blaise the trail for my leaf owning neighbor to have a home charging option). My main concern.. Would pluging into this kind of system have any potential to harm my car? I mean the amount of power provided would vary through the evening and based on weather, at times would be a bare trickle. I dont know if that has any downside for the car. And if anyone else has done this, or something like it.. Is there anything I should know before I get started?
