Calculating Solar Panel Needs for the Fluence

To determine the number of solar panels required to power the Fluence, consider its energy consumption of 31 kWh/100 miles kWh/100 miles and a 22 kWh kWh battery capacity. The calculation involves assessing your daily or monthly mileage, the efficiency of the solar panels you intend to install, and the average sunlight hours your location receives. You can check how many panel using our EV solar charging calculator.

Installation and Cost Considerations

Installing solar panels to power your Fluence involves several considerations, including the choice of panels, the capacity of your solar system, and the specifics of your installation site. Costs can vary based on these factors, but solar incentives and rebates can make the investment more affordable. Financing options, such as $0 down leases, are available to help manage upfront costs, making solar power accessible to a broader audience.
