Photovoltaic-led charging with NRGkick
With the Smart Service “Photovoltaic-led charging for NRGkick” you can easily use the self-produced electricity from the PV system to charge your electric vehicle.
So nothing stands in the way of efficient charging with solar energy!
What is behind the function?
A photovoltaic system generates electricity from sunlight, which is converted from direct current to alternating current by the inverter. The household obtains the required energy from the PV system for lamps, refrigerators and other consumers, for example.
If the PV system generates more electricity than is needed at the moment in the household, a PV surplus electricity is generated. This surplus is normally fed into the grid. However, with the Smart Service “Photovoltaic-guided charging for NRGkick”, this surplus electricity can be optimally charged into the battery of the electric car. Thus, the electric car is charged with the self-generated electricity at a much lower cost than at public charging stations or when charging with electricity from the grid.

NRGkick uses the surplus electricity from your PV system to charge your electric vehicle.

Simple setup without additional equipment
To use the PV-guided charging feature with NRGkick, you only need a software upgrade for your NRGkick, which is unlocked via the NRGkick App. No additional hardware is required. The configuration of the function is done directly in the NRGkick app and takes only a few minutes. You do not need any programming skills.
Different charging strategies
In the NRGkick app, select between the charging strategies "surplus charging" or "100% sun" and then define individual adjustments. If your photovoltaic system does not produce enough power, you can pause charging or draw the missing charging current from the grid. Automatic phase switching between 1-, 2- or 3-phase charging is also possible. In addition, your own house batteries, smartloads and other consumers in your household can be taken into account and prioritized.
Recommendation: The charging strategy "surplus charging" is mainly relevant if a smart meter is available in the household. If no smart meter is integrated in the system, the "100% solar" strategy is recommended.
Optimize charges with the NRGkick App
Through the NRGkick App you can optimize all charging strategies and create up to 5 different profiles where your custom settings are stored. Charging processes, for example, can be optimized with a minimum or maximum power and delay time. The produced power or the surplus from the PV system can be comfortably distributed to different consumers (e.g. battery, smartloads, electric car,...).
With the detailed setting options in the NRGkick app, you can adapt your PV-guided charging to your needs and make it as efficient as possible. Of course, you can also use the function with the basic settings.
