The sonnenCharger makes clean electricity available for electric cars at all times. Simultaneously, the vehicles can be interconnected into a large virtual battery to make the power grid more flexible.
The smart charging box can charge electric cars with self-produced solar power from the roof or a solar battery. Different modes are possible, so that the user can decide whether he wants to charge his car as quickly as possible or with the maximum share of his own solar power. In order to control or adapt the charging process at any time, users are also given a user-friendly app.
The sonnenCharger networks the vehicles with the sonnenCommunity. For example, if there is not enough self-produced solar power to charge the vehicle, the excess electricity of other members of the community is used.
As a member of the sonnenCommunity, owners of electric vehicles can also take part in the sonnenFlat. This gives the household up to 8,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of free electricity per year. Assuming a household consumption of 5,000 kWh, this leaves 3,000 kWh for driving, which corresponds to a distance of 15,000 to 17,000 kilometres.
The sonnenCharger can be ordered immediately and will be available from the 2nd quarter of 2018. Almost all current vehicle models with up to 22 kW can be charged via the Type 2 socket. For new members of the sonnenCommunity who have the sonnenFlat 8000, the charger is available at no extra cost, which makes transitioning to clean and independent mobility even more inexpensive.
