Clean cars need clean electricity
Electric cars emit no exhaust fumes and are therefore emission-free on the road. This significantly reduces your ecological footprint. And when the electricity you need comes from sustainable, renewable energy sources, then the environmental impact is low. In this way electromobility can develop its full potential for a green future.
Your home as a clean energy charging station
For private individuals, combining your home charging station with your photovoltaic system brings twice the advantage. You not only make a significant contribution to the energy transition, but also achieve financial benefits. Thanks to low remuneration prices, it makes much more sense to feed excess solar power to your electric car rather than the public grid.
KEBA wall boxes: Smart and safe
The KEBA KeContact P30 wall box transforms your home into a charging station for electric cars. It provides a smart and safe way to power your electric car with solar energy. PV pioneer Fronius invited our team to two events so that interested visitors could experience our wall boxes first hand:
- Fronius Next Level Solar: May 14, 2019, Munich, Germany
- Fronius Open House: May 15, 2019, Kingston, UK
Do you want to transform your home into a smart home and charge your (future) electric car with solar power? Then the KEBA KeContact P30 is the perfect wall box for you! Our charging stations are available from select retailers and in various online shops.
Electromobility can achieve its greatest potential when the charging infrastructure offers opportunities for connecting to clean energy sources.

Charging at home or publicly?
A car with a combustion engine is refueled publicly at a service station. Why not do the same with an electric vehicle? After all, the public charging network has a large number of charging stations and gone are the days when people were forced to charge at home because the network had not been sufficiently developed. Four facts speak in favor of charging at home nonetheless.
Cable or no cable? That is the question.
Aside from the inner qualities of a wallbox – which include performance and safety features as well as attributes such as user identification, consumption gauge, and communication with existing systems – a purely external distinction can be made between two types: wallboxes with a fixed cable and wallboxes with a charging socket. These are the advantages of both models.
Plug or wallbox?
The standard delivery of an electric car in Europe usually includes a Type 2 charging cable that can be used for charging at a public charging station or wallbox with a socket, as well as a so-called emergency power cable with a Type F plug for the standard 230 V power outlet. You can use this emergency power cable to charge your electric car (or PHEV) in your garage at home. But should you really do that? There are several reasons why you shouldn't.
