The best and most economical way to use self-generated solar energy is by consuming it within your own home. Feeding unused energy into the public grid is remunerated at a comparatively low rate. Also when solar energy is available and when power is needed are not necessarily the same. One solution would be to intermediately store the unused power of the photovoltaic system until it is needed. Such options do exist, but they are very expensive and therefore, for most homeowners, are not an economical choice. The technology in SMARTFOX provides an intelligent, cost and energy efficient solution for this problem.
As an intelligent consumption control system, SMARTFOX redirects excess solar energy to various consumers within your home or business. By redistributing excess energy SMARTFOX reduces your reliance on the the public grid. You can consume up to 97% of the energy produced from your photovoltaic system, while also continuously reducing your costs. The higher the self consumption, the shorter the payback period. With SMARTFOX’s intelligent technology, your photovoltaic system pays itself, in spite of the additional investment, up to 10 years earlier.

is by consuming it within your own home."
To improve efficiency SMARTFOX primarily uses boilers and heat pumps with hot water, because such devices are continuously controllable. Thus, it transforms the element of water into a very efficient energy storage medium. Continuous charging of electric vehicles can now also be easily implemented.**
SMARTFOX can be easily integrated into existing photovoltaic systems and pays for itself in a short amount of time.

**Note: The minimum charging power of electric cars with Type 2 plugs is standardized (EN 62196). Electric cars load continuously beginning from 1.3kW 1-phase or 4.3 kW 3-phase. To continuously charge your electric car with excess energy, you must have a photovoltaic plant that produces more than the minimum load power.
