How distant can you drive using the charge from the roof of your house?
As long as the battery lasts, we answer!
Recharge your electric car from the energy accumulated from the roof of your own home is now possible! And all thanks to the Tegosolar photovoltaic system, the Italian Patent of Tegola Canadese. The first charging station for electric cars was installed at the headquarters of Iwis, in Vittorio Veneto-Italy, the European holding company for buildings and major works in Via dell’Industria.
Actually, it is the fifteenth recharge column installed in the province of Treviso, but as you may have guessed, in this case everything is different: Iwis wanted to make it available to its employees, collaborators and guests, free of charge, clean energy obtained with the innovative Tegosolar method, a photovoltaic system that uses the triple-junction amorphous silicon technology to produce electricity from renewable sources, with which the production site of Vittorio Veneto and part of the Italian plants have been completely covered.
This is a small but significant step, which is mainly used to encourage the culture of sustainability and attention to the environment, as announced by Alessandro Mazzer, Marketing Manager of the Iwis group, which is lead by Tegola Canadese, among others like Tema, Fi-Ve and Geobitec, which deal with energy efficiency for residential, commercial and industrial buildings, both public and private.
Companies with a high level of innovation are always very self-deprecating, and for this reason, once they started to build their fleet of electric cars, the traditional cars were marked with a sad smile, because, unlike the electric ones, they could not quench their thirst with clean energy!
