Incorporating battery storage into a solar panel system can offer significant advantages. For instance, if you produce excess solar electricity during the day, you can store it in batteries for later use, such as charging electric fleet vehicles overnight.
Certain battery storage systems can also be charged using cost-effective off-peak grid electricity and then utilized to power your building or EVs during the day when electricity prices are higher.
Battery storage proves to be a versatile asset, delivering cost savings for you and your company.
Solar Panel Installation
With an appropriate roof, a solar panel system can generate electricity at no cost, providing a sustainable energy source day after day.
This free solar electricity can be utilized to power various devices within your building and charge electric vehicles that are connected for charging.
Solar panels have become increasingly affordable, enabling you to reduce your fleet's operational expenses while safeguarding against potential future increases in energy prices.
Which type of electric vehicle is right for me?
Fully Electric (BEV)
Pure electric cars, also known as Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), operate solely on a large battery and an electric motor, without any internal combustion engine. They have zero CO2 emissions, making them environmentally friendly. Additionally, their battery-based technology makes them highly cost-effective to run.
Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)
Similar to fully electric Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), Plug-in Hybrids (PHEVs) require charging by plugging them in to replenish their medium-sized battery. However, PHEVs differ in that they also feature a conventional petrol or diesel engine. Normally, the initial 20-40 miles of a PHEV's journey rely solely on the battery, while the petrol/diesel engine takes over for longer distances.
Conventional Hybrid (HEV)
As with a PHEV, conventional Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) have both a battery and a petrol/diesel engine. The battery in a HEV is very small and you can’t plug it in. It can only power the car for short distances at low speeds. In a HEV, you will be using the petrol/diesel engine for most of the time.
