What are the advantages of having an electric vehicle?

Solar panels

Charging stations

An electric car works exclusively with electricity, it does not have a combustion engine that powers the vehicle. The electric motor is very quiet, a BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) circulates without emissions and protects the environment to the maximum. BEVs are included in the highest category of eligible aid in each country and have tax incentives.

You can install it in a home or chalet, in the garage of a Residents’ Association, in the parking lot of a private company or if it is an Public Administration, in any public area for neighbourhood or urban use.

No, it is enough to inform about the installation to be carried out through a document that will provide you with emovili.

Yes. But you must request authorization from the owner of the garage and attach it to the communication for the president or administrator. If you change places, we can uninstall the charger so that you can use it at your new address.

No. We have charging equipment that has electronic activation and deactivation systems.

According to the Low Voltage Electrical Installations Regulation, the installation of a charging station must always be carried out in accordance with its ITC-BT-52 standard by an authorized electrical installer such as emovili, who guarantees the quality and safety of the installation. In addition, we always deliver the certificate of legalization of the installation that guarantees that it has been carried out in accordance with current regulations.

There are three types: In single-family houses the installation is usually very simple. Normally, the existing general electrical panel and one of the conduits leading to the area where the car is parked are used. If you live in the same multi-family building where you park, we can extend the wiring from your electric meter to the garage. If you park your vehicle in a multi-family building where you do not have a home, you will have to request a new electric supply point. At emovili, we carry out the necessary procedures for the installation of the electrical meter.

Charging Station: the best option to charge an electric vehicle. It guarantees maximum safety by maintaining direct communication with the vehicle. You can choose the model according to the maximum load power (3.7 or 7.4 kW) in single-phase current. They can be basic or intelligent depending on whether or not they have the possibility of interacting with them.
Occasional charger or normal plug: charges at less than 2.2 kW. It is an occasional or emergency charger that has several drawbacks in terms of safety and charging times.
Fast charger: This charger is found at charging stations. Charges the vehicle from 50kWh.

No, some chargers include charge modulators, essential to avoid having to increase your contracted power. When the demand is higher in the home, the charger automatically reduces the recharge of the car and conversely, when the demand in the home is reduced, all the charge is directed to the car. In principle, it is not necessary to increase the contracted power. It is recommended that you send your invoice to the emovili expert for advice.

There is the Electric Vehicle Plan, where you would pay for energy depending on what you need to charge and your other needs. This plan is without permanence and is also super sustainable. Payment is monthly and with electronic invoicing to avoid paper.
The “Supervalle Rate” has a very low price for night-time charging. At this rate, if you charge the car at night and do not have other electrical appliances working, it would not be necessary to increase the contracted power.
In any case, it would be necessary for you to send your invoice to the emovili advisor so that they can make a preliminary analysis of the invoice, since it depends on multiple components.

We have a with the charging time of all electric and plug-in hybrid models on the market.

The approximate charge time of a vehicle would be the result of dividing the size of the battery (ex. 50kW) between the available power of the charger (ex. 5.5kW) resulting in the number of hours required to charge your car’s battery 100%. With some chargers, you can schedule times to charge during the cheapest rate.

In addition to knowing how much the car spends, you will be able to know the historical consumption of your vehicle and home, detailed lists of recharges, you can activate or deactivate the remote charge, even configure activation periods or receive notifications with the status of the charge or if the power goes out in your home.

Currently there is the MOVES III Plan that subsidizes charging station installations for electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids.
For individuals, self-employed, Residents’ Associations, administrations without economic activity, the financial aid amounts to 70% of the installation (80% in the case of municipalities with less than 5,000 inhabitants).
For companies, it is better to contact emovili and analyse each case specifically.

From 4.5 km to 6 km of autonomy depending on the efficiency of the EV and between € 1.50 to € 2.50 depending on the plan contracted with the supplier.

Solar panels

Self-consumption is the individual production of electricity for own consumption in homes or companies. The most widespread is the self-consumption of photovoltaic solar energy, in which electricity is obtained thanks to solar panels that are usually installed on the roofs of buildings and that convert solar energy into electrical energy.

Photovoltaic solar energy installations are always profitable. In a region with normal brightness, with well-oriented panels, you can save 60% of your electricity bill. The facilities must be designed taking into account the actual electrical consumption so as not to install more or less than is necessary.

One of the false beliefs is that the more panels we install in our home, the more profitable our installation will be. This is not true. Our solar panels will generate energy when the sun shines, that is, between 8 am and 6 pm, and that energy will be injected into the electrical system of our home. Since we do not have batteries to store energy, the electricity generated by the panels that is not consumed by our appliances (lights, refrigerator, washing machine, heating, etc.) will go into the electricity grid. On the other hand, when our panels are not generating, all the energy necessary to power our house will come from the electrical network.

The ideal installation is the one that best adapts to your consumption level and the space available on your roof, taking into account the solar radiation of your locality. At emovili we boast of our independence and we give you a tailor-made solution.

Photovoltaic solar energy is produced by taking advantage of solar radiation. Therefore, it is free energy that nature gives us.

To know the consumption of your home, you can check it on one of your electricity bills. You can also send the bill to us, we will study your energy consumption and we will send you an assessment without obligation.

The excess energy poured into the grid, and offset in your electricity bill, is called surplus compensation.

Nowadays, it is not interesting to generate surplus photovoltaics to sell, but to consume. The average price per kW that companies are paying is € 0.04, so it is more important to optimize the installation and amortize the investment rather than to have surpluses.

For the installation start-up, we need to assess your consumption, visit your home and obtain construction permits from the City Council. Once these are obtained, the installation process can take one or more days, depending on its magnitude.

emovili includes the maintenance service in the installation. Our maxim is a commitment to our clients underpinned by Quality, Experience and Service. This means being by your side when you need it, we take care of everything.

All over Spain there is enough solar radiation to be able to save money with a photovoltaic installation. Depending on your consumption and the power of the solar installation, the savings may vary. If you send us one of your electricity bills, we can quickly calculate your savings. In areas of Northern Europe, photovoltaic solar energy has been in place for many years.

There are bonuses in the Real Estate Tax (IBI in Spanish). 50% IBI = € 550 / year.
In addition, some Autonomous Communities offer subsidies as part of energy efficiency and renewable energy programs.

The Sun Tax was in effect in Spain until the end of 2018. Since the approval of the Spanish Royal Decree (RD 244/2019) in April 2019, this tax has been repealed and there has been a significant increase in solar panel installations.

They are extremely durable and weather resistant. It is estimated that they have a useful life of more than 30 years.

According to some studies carried out, properties with photovoltaic systems can be sold at higher prices than houses without panels. The energy efficiency benefits of the property are an important element in the purchase decision.

With a standard photovoltaic installation it is possible to avoid the annual emission into the atmosphere of up to 950 kg of CO2. The electrical energy generated by photovoltaic solar panels is 100% renewable, does not generate waste or toxic substances and does not pollute water or air.

A system has been defined that economically compensates for our surpluses, that is, every time we inject energy into the electricity grid, we generate a credit in our favour, since the government establishes the price of the energy injected by the solar panels on a daily basis.
This credit increases every day during the billing month and at the end of the month, this credit is subtracted from the energy consumed from the network when our panels are not generating (at night and in hours of low solar lighting). Therefore, if a month you have injected € 10 of energy from the panels (surplus) and you have consumed energy equivalent to € 20, you will only have to pay € 10 for the energy term, which is the variable term of the bill.
But there is a peculiarity: if a month the solar radiation has been excellent and your consumption has been low, it will mean that you have injected more energy into the grid than you have consumed. As the credit cannot be maintained from one month to the next, it will be energy that you will have given to the network (that is why it is so important to carry out a good design and sizing of the installation). But the most important thing is that all this energy calculation is carried out by the electricity companies (distributors and marketers) automatically, without the need to send papers and documents every month. Once you are connected to the network, you can enjoy this surplus compensation forever.

The self-consumption law regulates that we can enjoy at the end of the month an economic reduction in our bill based on the excess energy that we have injected into the network. It is like having a virtual battery where we can store the energy that we have left over. At the end of each month, the electricity company subtracts from the consumption that we have had from the network the economic value of the excess energy that has been injected into the network. But there are two peculiarities:
– The sale price to the network is not the same as the purchase price (it is usually 60%). Therefore, 1 kWh injected into the grid does not equal 1 kWh consumed.
– The energy compensation in no case can be higher than the energy consumed, so we will not be able to “earn money” with the injected energy. If the injected energy is higher than the consumed, we will be “giving away” energy to the system.

There are several things that are generally left out when explaining the self-consumption surplus compensation mechanism:
The savings correspond to the part of your electricity bill that reflects the energy you consume. Electricity bills basically consist of two parts: ‘contracted power’ and ‘energy consumed’. There is a fixed cost every month for the power contracted. This cost will remain constant despite having a photovoltaic installation. The money you save corresponds to the part of the energy consumed. By saving money from only one of the two parts of the bill, at most you can save between 50% and 70% of the same bill without photovoltaic installation. In other words, thanks to the surplus compensation you will pay approximately half of your electricity bill.
On the other hand, the price of delivering surplus solar energy to the grid is much lower than the purchase price. On average, the price of delivering energy to the grid is half the cost of purchasing energy. This aspect limits the profitability of solar photovoltaic installations.

Once your solar installation has been completed and legalized in the corresponding administration, the electricity supply contract with your distribution company must be changed. The distribution company is the one that sends the invoices to your house. They, maintaining all the conditions of the previous contract, add the simplified compensation of surpluses.
Thus, at the end of each billing period, which is usually one month, the distribution company shows on the bill the cost of the energy that it has consumed from the network and subtracts the price of the energy that has been left over and therefore has delivered to the network. In this way, the final price of energy will be the energy that it buys from the network, multiplied by its price minus the energy that is left over and has delivered to the network multiplied by its price. It is important to note that the prices for buying and selling energy are different.
Another factor to take into account is that delivering energy to the grid will never make money. That is, by doing the aforementioned addition and subtraction, at most we can achieve that the price of energy at the end of a billing period is € 0. This means that the variable term, the one that corresponds to the energy consumed, can never be less than € 0. With the compensation of surpluses you do not earn money in a physical way, the benefit is a consequence of the savings in your new electricity bill

The limitations in compensating for self-consumption surpluses make it very important to correctly design and size photovoltaic installations. On the one hand, it is necessary to take into account when energy is usually consumed in the home (day or night) and the amount of energy that is consumed. In the event that more panels were installed than necessary, no matter how much energy surplus there might be, this would not mean more savings.
At the same time, despite our last comment about the price of energy delivery to the grid, the introduction of this novelty in the law reduces the return on investment times of photovoltaic installations. On average, these times have been reduced by about 2 years. In addition, it makes the use of energy in the home more flexible because it is not essential to concentrate consumption in the hours of sunshine. Energy can be delivered to the grid while people are away from home and thus compensate for the nighttime electricity consumption of the home.
