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.

Sunny times ahead for electric cars
Electric cars are not only emission-free, but also cheaper to drive than conventional cars. It is even more environmentally-friendly and cost-saving if the electricity you need to charge your car comes from your own solar power system. At two events hosted by the PV pioneer Fronius, our experts showed how easy, safe and smart it is to use a KEBA wall box to charge your electric car with solar power.
