E-Gear and Ikayzo built an innovative Solar+Storage Home EV Charging Solution with a Heroku backend. Using a dedicated PV array and home battery, the solution stores solar energy during the day to charge homeowners' electric vehicles at night. Optionally, customers can charge their EV with grid energy during the day as well. E-Gear’s backend sits on Heroku and is ready to scale with the inevitable boom in demand for solar powered EV charging solutions.
Three months earlier, after two years of intensive research and development, E-Gear announced an edge-of-grid energy solution to break the deadlock between mounting demand for rooftop photovoltaic (PV) power, and the technical limitations of an electric power grid designed in a pre-PV era. The EMC (Energy Management Controller) acts as the brains of a home, coordinating power flow between the PV system, home loads, optional battery pack and the public power grid.
