With the smartfox Energy Manager, you can charge your electric car with the surplus solar energy from your photovoltaic system and enjoy up to 100% emission-free driving.
Optimise your PV electricity consumption for the whole household. You save on energy costs and help the environment at the same time.
The online portal shows you how much PV electricity you are producing and using, for example to charge your electric car. Identify cost savings and manage your electricity consumption.
It is very profitable to charge the electric car with electricity from your own photovoltaic (PV) system. For every kWp (kilowatt peak) installed, a PV system can supply up to 1,000 kWh of electricity per year.
For an average electric vehicle¹, this corresponds to 5,000 km of emission-free driving pleasure per year. In addition, this type of cost-efficient charging can save hard cash.
Self-consumption of PV electricity is becoming increasingly important due to falling feed-in tariffs and rising electricity costs. Instead of reselling the self-produced electricity at low profits, as much electricity as possible should be consumed or temporarily stored.
How you benefit from PV energy management
The Calabrese family lives in a one-family house and would prefer to charge their new electric car via their own photovoltaic system. This way, they hope to use their generated solar power as far as possible and to be completely emission-free on the road as often as possible. To use the solar power, the Calabrese family has installed a solar solution consisting of an additional meter and a solar manager.
With the help of this solar solution, the Calabreses can supply power storage, home and charging station with electricity from the photovoltaic system. Depending on the driving and charging profile, the Calabrese family can thus cover 70% of the energy required by their electric car via solar power.
"Thanks to our PV system, we can charge our electric car almost exclusively with solar power. This doesn't just save us cash, but also around 500 kg of CO₂ every year."
