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."
