Step-by-step

Solarcharge Systems involve three categories of users:

• Owners of charging points
• Owners of PV-systems (photovoltaic systems)
• Owners of both charging points and PV-systems

Here you will find information on how to connect and supply charging points with solar power step-by-step.


Owner of both charging points and PV-systems

If you are the owner of both the PV-system and charging points, steps can be followed as above except the last step "Selling guarantees of origin”. Compensation for your guarantees of origin are then determined from case to case.

1. Certify the PV-system for the production of solar electricity

If the system is not already authorised for issuing of Guarantees of Origin – GO:s for solar electricity production, this must be done by the National Energy Agency. You can do this yourself as the owner of the plant by using official forms from the energy authority or issue a warrant for us to do it.

3. Certify the charging points for solar power

When the charging points are connected and checked, they will be certified and labelled with a sign that verifies that the sites are supplied with solar electricity. All metadata for the plants, such as the meter-ID, coordinates and addresses will be available in your Solar Bank account. A standardised XML message is created that can be used for SCADA and building management systems. Electric car drivers who charge their cars at the certified charging points are now guaranteed 100% solar energy.

3. Selling guarantees of origin

Compensation for Guarantees of Origin will be paid each quarter. An account at your own bank for the compensation of GO:s that will be transferred from the Solar Bank must be specified. Accounting-wise payments will be handled as credit notes.

2. Connect to the Solar Bank

An account is registered on the Solar Bank for the PV-system that provides charging points with solar power. Once registered and certified, the PV-system will be connected to the Solar Bank. This can be done using measurement devices in two ways:

  • Data from a MID-classified meter is available via a supervisory system. Measurement data is sent to the Solar Bank as hourly values via a specified protocol.

  • If no supervisory system is installed, a new MID-classified electricity meters and a gateway must be installed.

The site will be displayed on a map with details of name, output power and place. All metadata for the plant, such as the meter ID and coordinates will be available on the account. Measurement data for production will be collected and matched with the charging of connected charging points. Statistics and summaries of the data will be available on the account.

1. Sign up the charging points that will be supplied with solar electricity.

An account is registered on the Solar Bank. Once you have chosen your charging points that will be supplied with solar power they will be connected to the Solar Bank. This can be done in two ways:

• Data is available via an existing operator using standardised protocols OSCP. A Solarcharge Plugin is downloaded that can be used directly.

• If no superior system is available, or if the operator does not support OCSP, an electricity meter and a gateway will be installed.

Data for charging will be collected and matched with the production of solar electricity from preselected installations. Statistics and summaries of the data will be available in your account.

2. Select photovoltaic plants that will serve the charging points

You will get an overview of all production facilities connected to the Solar Bank and how much solar energy is available. If you do not choose a specific facility, we ensure that the appropriate plant is connected. Charging points and the plants supplying them with solar power are displayed on a map with details of name, type, charging power and location. You decide whether this information should be public and shown on various search engines or anonymous.
