Excess PV Charging – What does that mean?
Installing photovoltaic (PV) solar panels on your roof allows you to generate not only power for your home or the grid. Solar electric energy can also go directly to your electric vehicle - and thereby significantly shorten the amortisation period of a PV system by reducing charging costs. We explain what excess PV charging is exactly and how it works.
AC and DC? Single-Phase and 3-Phase Charging?
If you want to drive an e-car or a plug-in hybrid, you have to deal with the subject of charging. You’ll quickly come across terms like alternating and direct current, single-phase and 3-phase charging. But what do they mean and how do these concepts influence the way you charge your vehicle? Here’s a summary of the most important points.
Sunny times ahead for electric cars
Electric cars are not only emission-free, but also cheaper to drive than conventional cars. It is even more environmentally-friendly and cost-saving if the electricity you need to charge your car comes from your own solar power system. At two events hosted by the PV pioneer Fronius, our experts showed how easy, safe and smart it is to use a KEBA wall box to charge your electric car with solar power.
