An autarchic turnkey solution for EV charging

After a year since the installation of the first demo-garage in Rovio we are now ready to start the commercialization of SUN2WHEEL: perfectly in time for the new Swiss Energy Act.

In this year we were able to gain important insights through the gathered statistical data: 7’883 kWh renewable energy has been produced. This allowed to drive 39'146 km, save 6'776 kg CO2 on Well-to-Wheel basis and 4'098.20 CHF of gasoline fuel costs.

Turnkey solutions

SUN2WHEEL is an autarchic garage that fully integrates building technology and electric mobility. In order to achieve the clean and independent energy supply of the vehicles, SUN2WHEEL perfectly combines the following elements: photovoltaic production, buffer battery if necessary, regulated and/or bidirectional charging of the car and connection to the house for delivering excess electricity. It allows a repayment of the investment in less than 11 years.

We offer turnkey ready solutions for private and business customers with different configurations:

sleep&charge
Mainly the car is parked in the carport during the night. This means that a buffer battery is needed to store the energy produced during the day when the sun is shining.

sleep&charge: Single

The single version features one parking space, in order to charge one EV. It includes a high quality wood construction, the completely integrated photovoltaic roof, and the SUN2WHEEL-Smart System. The SUN2WHEEL- Smart System consists of second-use car batteries, charging station for EV and Smart-Controller.

sleep&charge: Double Open

This version features two parking spaces to charge two cars. It includes a high quality wood construction, the completely integrated photovoltaic roof, and the SUN2WHEEL-Smart System. The SUN2WHEEL- Smart System consists of second-use car batteries, charging station for EV and Smart-Controller.

sleep&charge: Double Closed

This version features two parking spaces to charge two cars. It includes a high quality wood construction and door, the completely integrated photovoltaic roof, and the SUN2WHEEL-Smart System. The SUN2WHEEL- Smart System consists of second-use car batteries, charging station for EV and Smart-Controller.
work&charge
Mainly the car is parked in the carport when the sun is shining (i.e. during work). This means that no battery or only a little one is necessary to store the energy, since it can directly be used to charge the car.

work&charge: Modular Business Version

This carport is modular and easily scalable to additional parking places. This version includes a high quality wood construction, the completely integrated photovoltaic roof, and the SUN2WHEEL-Smart System. The SUN2WHEEL- Smart System consists of charging station for EV and Smart-Controller. If the carport is installed with the purpose to charge employees’ EVs, which are placed there during the day, the integration of a battery is not necessary.

Advantages

  • Independent production of green energy with the photovoltaic plant.
  • Direct use of self-produced energy without feeding the energy at a low tariff and buying it later at expensive fees for charging the EV.
  • Shorter payback period of the photovoltaic installation, as the renewable energy is used to replace the most expensive energy in a household: the energy for mobility.
  • Breaking the cost of power peaks.
  • Temporary energy availability in the event of a power failure.
  • It is exactly the right time for the SUN2WHEEL-system to hit the market: As of 1 January 2018 the Federal Council enacted the totally revised Energy Act. The innovations of the energy law make it possible to additionally increase self-consumption by supplying electricity to the neighbors.

    Installation

    The installation is easy and quick. The wood construction can be fixed on the ground with big screws/bolts that serve as a foundation in case of soft ground. Not only is this kind of foundation very convenient for the installation but also in case of conversions or dismantling. Otherwise other types of foundation i.e. in classic masonry can support the installation.
