Charging your electric car with solar power

E-MOBILITY THAT PAYS OFF

Driving sustainably for the future of all – this is possible with your own electric car. But what’s important here is to charge with green electricity – and ideally from your own photovoltaic system, since the energy to power the car is then not only 100% clean, but it is also extremely cheap.

ADVANTAGES OF E-MOBILITY WITH SOLAR POWER

Cost savings
Charging with solar power from your own roof is cheaper from day one.

Increased self-consumption
If you use more of your own solar power, you save more and feed less electricity into the grid.

Reduced CO2emissions
For a smaller ecological footprint and improved air quality: electric cars do not produce exhaust fumes.

CHARGE AN ELECTRIC CAR WITH SOLAR POWER AND MAKE DRIVING MORE AFFORDABLE

Solar power from your own photovoltaic system is the most affordable form of electricity. This makes e-mobility especially attractive and sustainably rewarding for owners of a PV solution.

There are also economic benefits, in addition to environmental benefits such as emission-free travel. By charging with low-cost energy, not only does your own electric car pay for itself more quickly, but the photovoltaic system also delivers a full return on its investment even more quickly.

In the long-term, cars powered by electricity also achieve further savings compared to cars with conventional combustion engines, as they are far easier to maintain.

 

DRIVE WITH YOUR OWN SOLAR POWER 

The more electricity you use from your own photovoltaic system, the faster the investment pays off. If you are using your self-generated electricity not just for heating, cooling and operating electrical appliances, but are also charging your electric car with solar power, you are increasing your self-consumption sustainably.

CHARGING AN ELECTRIC CAR WITH SOLAR POWER – HERE’S HOW IT WORKS Here’s how you can harness the energy from your own roof for use throughout the home.
Photovoltaic modules With home systems, usually mounted on the roof, the solar cells turn the incident sunlight into electrical energy.
1
Inverter The heart and brain of every PV system. The inverter converts the direct current generated into alternating current that can be used in the household. The inverter also optimises the yield, controls energy flows and checks the function of the PV system.
2
Fronius Smart Meter Our intelligent electricity meter optimises energy management, and therefore self-consumption.
3
Charging box The charging box is an electric filling point. It supplies the electric car with electricity from the grid or from a PV system.

Photovoltaics Solar modules and an inverter are the basis for a sustainable energy solution. In this way you can produce electricity for your household on your own roof. 
1
Energy storage devices for 24 hours of sun By expanding your PV system with a storage unit, you can use the electricity you generate yourself even when the sun is not shining. 
2
E-mobility with solar power By also charging your electric car with solar power from your own roof, you not only power your car with green electricity, but you also do not have to pay for electricity from the grid.
3
Hot water Electricity from your PV system can also be used to heat water, e.g. for showering or heating. This means that your PV system pays for itself even faster.
