Solar energy in your e-car: it’s not a dream, but a simple way to reduce the energy costs with a green approach, using your photovoltaic plant and Mennekes systems for charging.
MENNEKES and VP Solar: solutions for solar and e-car
VP Solar became distributor of Mennekes solutions for e-mobility, with the idea to provide complete energy systems to its resellers and installers.
MENNEKES is a German company, with a leading position in manufacturing smart charging station for e-vehicle.
The partnership with VP Solar is oriented to select and train a selected group of professional installers of energy systems.
VP Solar, involved in distribution of energy systems from 1999, is serving about 3.000 companies in Italy and International markets, providing them high quality products and services.
In the first sessions of training about Mennekes solutions, about 200 professional installers partecipated, opening new perspectives of business, very synergistic with photovoltaic and storage energy systems.
Reduce energy costs
MENNEKES charging stations offer the opportunity for reducing energy costs or maximizing the use of home-generated solar energy.
Recharge up with electricity when the rate is most favorable. It’s completely automatic.
If you do not want to incur any additional energy costs, you can simply charge with the electricity from your solar panels.
If your energy supplier offers different electricity tariffs at different times of day, then you can define two time zones in the MENNEKES Charge APP, set these zones to the preferred electricity rates and define maximum charge rates per zone.
Thus you can ensure that you always charge at the best electricity rate.
The increasing use of regenerative energy frequently results in an over-supply of energy, since regenerative energies are only available when nature wants them to be available.
To reduce this over-supply the electric utilities want to connect up power consumers as needed.
In general, your electric utility makes a more favorable electricity rate available at such times.
Using the grid-control function, your home charging station can be controlled by your electricity provider.
Modern solar power systems can intelligently control electrical equipment and batteries in order to reduce energy costs.
The battery of your electric vehicle is a large accumulator that significantly increases the possibilities for intelligent control of energy in the smart home.
