Charging your electric car

with solar power

THE PERFECT COMBINATION: CHARGE YOUR ELECTRIC CAR WITH SOLAR POWER

Anyone switching to an electric car today can make an important contribution to our climate, but it is important to charge an electric car with green electricity. The best way to do this is with solar power from your own photovoltaic system. The electricity from your own roof is clean and truly cost-effective.

Advantages of sustainable e-mobility

Reduce costs
Charge your electric car using cost-effective solar power from your own roof.

Increase self-consumption
Use the majority of your own solar power and feed less into the grid.

Reduce CO2emissions
Power your car using green electricity without emissions, reduce your ecological footprint and ensure better air quality.

CHARGE YOUR ELECTRIC CAR WITH COST-EFFECTIVE SOLAR POWER

Solar power is the cheapest form of electricity today. Therefore, it also makes financial sense to charge your electric car with solar power - preferably from your own photovoltaic system. This means that your electric car will not only run on green electricity, but also on extremely cost-effective electricity.

Due to the cost advantage you have when charging, the electric car pays for itself even faster. Incidentally, in the long term, electric cars will achieve further price advantages over cars with combustion engines because they require less maintenance.

USE AS MUCH OF YOUR OWN SOLAR POWER AS POSSIBLE

A photovoltaic system pays off for everyone. However, the investment will pay for itself more quickly if you use as much of your own electricity as possible. You can achieve a particularly high level of self-consumption if you charge your electric car with PV electricity.

With the help of Fronius charging solutions, you can ensure that your electric car automatically charges when there is surplus PV power available in the household. This means that you charge your car exclusively with electricity that would otherwise flow unused into the public grid.

How e-mobility works with solar power In this way the energy from your own roof can be used throughout the household.
Photovoltaic modules With home installations, solar modules are usually mounted on the roof. Sunlight hits solar cells, where solar energy is converted into electrical energy.

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.

Fronius Smart Meter A Fronius Smart Meter is an intelligent electricity meter. Fitting one enables optimised energy management and thus self-consumption.

Wallbox The wallbox is an electric filling point. It supplies the electric car with electricity from the grid or from a PV system.

... with storage unit 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
... with e-mobility 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.

Photovoltaics and e-mobility – a perfect combination!

Katarzyna Baran drives an electric car, which she charges using the PV energy she generates at home. In doing so, she is also increasing her rate of self-consumption. And the higher the degree of self-consumption of a PV system, the faster it pays for itself. Moreover, Katarzyna Baran is no longer dependent on rising fuel prices.
