The domestic engineering and energy giant, MAPNA Group, unveiled its first solar-powered electric vehicle charging station in Fardis County, Alborz Province, on Sunday, fulfilling its promise to promote green means of transportation.
The station has been developed by the group’s Electric and Control Engineering and Manufacturing Company (MECO), IRNA reported.
The solar-powered station has a capacity of about 4 kilowatt hour and is connected to an EV charger with a 3.7-kWh discharge capability.
For the first time in Iran, the station can assist in achieving V2G and V2H technologies, meaning that it can either store the extra electricity, or feed it into the household or national grid.
The terms V2G and V2H stand for “vehicle to grid” and “vehicle to home” respectively. 
These technologies enable energy to be pushed back to the power grid from the battery of an electric car.
