Charging stations

Home charging of electric vehicles with individual billing and dynamic power management.

How does this work?

Thanks to the installation of a flat cable around the perimeter of the car park each space is thus ready to receive a 22kW charging station.

The chargers are then quickly installed as residents acquire an electric vehicle.

Power is automatically regulated according to the number of vehicles on charge and the available amperage.

Climkit Mobility Dynamic

Dynamic load power management

Climkit Mobility Dynamic automatically and instantaneously adjusts the power of the car park's charging stations to reduce charging time without ever exceeding the building's connection power.

Power is automatically regulated according to the number of vehicles on charge and the available amperage.

Although an internet connection is required for the identification of new users, operation is guaranteed even if the connection is temporarily interrupted.

Counting and billing

fichtre_gestion

Refill

All charging stations are equipped with a user identification system via RFID key and an integrated counter connected via WiFi.

Billing

Every quarter Climkit invoices each user for his use of the charging station and pays the global electricity bill issued by the local electricity distributor.

Rental

For the owners who rent the charging station to their tenants, the cost of the rental can also be directly accounted for on the same invoice.

Sharing

A charging station can be shared by several users having a badge. Each user will be billed separately through their personal badge.

Charging column for public parking

Climkit charging stations can be set up to be used by passing users.

Via a QR code displayed on the charging station, the visitor directly selects a payment method (Twint or credit card) and recharges his vehicle at the rate chosen by the charging station owner.

The process is fast because no account creation is required.

Climkit then establishes a periodic statement and returns the money collected to the owner.

A versatile, compatible terminal

Climkit offers the ABB Terra AC (MID) charging station, compatible with all types of electric car.

Thanks to its integrated MID-certified meter, it accurately measures consumption at peak and off-peak rates, guaranteeing the most cost-effective recharging.

It also works perfectly with a photovoltaic system for solar-only charging.

What's more, Climkit is compatible with other terminals equipped with the open OCPP communication protocol, so there's no need to rely on a single supplier.

FAQs

How is electricity consumption measured and billed?

The electricity is measured by the meter integrated into the terminal and is associated with the user identified by his badge. Climkit invoices the user monthly or quarterly at the rates defined by the owner.

What type of Charging Station is compatible with the Climkit system?

You need to install terminals equipped with the OCPP communication protocol, which is open and standard. As a general rule, avoid terminals offered by car dealerships, which are more suitable for connections in individual homes.

Who can install the charging stations and how much will they cost?

Installation is carried out by a qualified electrician. The cost depends on the topology of the building and the car park. In general, the basic infrastructure for a car park with around twenty spaces costs between CHF 500 and CHF 750 per space. You then need to allow between CHF 2,000 and CHF 2,500 for the supply and installation of an individual charging point.

Can the charging stations be used by visitors who don't live in the building?

Yes, use of the charging points is open to people who do not live in the building, thanks to a QR code affixed to the charging point. Passing users pay directly for the occasional top-up of their vehicle via Twint or by credit card.

Can neighbours share a charging point?

Yes, it is possible to share the use of a charging point, as each user identifies himself with his badge and is billed for his own consumption. As it only takes 4 to 5 hours to recharge the equivalent of 250 to 300 km, most residents only plug in once a week.

How many charging points should be installed in a car park?

It is recommended that the basic infrastructure (flat cable) be installed in all the squares and that the bollards be installed as and when required by residents. It is also possible to install only a few terminals available to all, in visitor areas for example.

In general, who finances the installation of charging points in car parks?

In rental properties, the landlord finances the basic infrastructure (installation of the flat cable) and the installation of the individual charging points in return for payment of a rental fee for the tenants who use the charging points.

In a condominium, all the owners finance the basic infrastructure and then each pays for the supply and installation of their own terminal.

Why shouldn't the charging points be connected behind the individual electricity meters in the flats?

Charging power will be limited to the amperage of the flat connection. This will mean a longer charging time and a risk of the flat fuse blowing. With a dedicated connection to all the charging points in the building, the power is better distributed and regulated.

Is it necessary to increase the amperage of the building's electrical connection before installing charging points?

No, there's no need to increase the amperage of the electrical connection because flats and communal areas only consume a fraction of the power available and the rest can be made available to the terminals. In the event of peak consumption, the Climkit system temporarily reduces the power supplied to the terminals to prevent the fuses from blowing!
