More and more homes now rely on renewable energy and are becoming independent of the public power supply. At the same time, more and more electric cars are coming into the market, which are now quite an interesting option for the average consumer. Virtually every major car manufacturer has developed an electric model for the market and subsidies are making them attractive to a large audience. What could make more sense than using your self-produced solar power to charge the battery of an electric car? SMARTFOX, in conjunction with the SMARTFOX Car Charger, manage this task efficiently and intelligently.
For anyone who would like to use electricity from their own photovoltaic system to load an electric car, SMARTFOX and the SMARTFOX Car Charger provide the simple and economical solution. But how does it work? SMARTFOX, the intelligent energy consumption regulator, measures your photovoltaic system’s excess energy and redirects that exact amount to the Car Charger. SMARTFOX Car Charger allows you to control and charge your electric vehicle continuously which allows SMARTFOX to send only as much energy as is available to your electric car.**
"SMARTFOX, the intelligent energy consumption regulator, measures your photovoltaic system's excess energy and redirects that exact amount to the Car Charger."
Since both SMARTFOX and the charging station are available via a LAN interface, the two devices are able to easily communicate. If you need to charge faster, that’s no problem – just press the installed button (optional) to be able to change to quick charging mode.
Our technology is exceptionally easy to integrate in existing photovoltaic systems. Get in touch with our team - we are happy to offer a free, no obligation consultation.
Optimize your energy efficiency by charging your car with excess solar energy!
**Note: The minimum charging power of electric cars with Type 2 plugs is standardized (EN 62196). Electric cars load continuously beginning from 1.3kW 1-phase or 4.3 kW 3-phase. To continuously charge your electric car with excess energy, you must have a photovoltaic plant that produces more than the minimum load power.
