Enersac was the first company to install and implement a solar-powered electric car charging station in Latin America. The project was carried out at the Technical University of Ambato in Ecuador in 2016, which was delivered as a turnkey solution.
The total investment of the project was 38,000 USD. Some of the components of the charging station are: a fast recharge station that uses the sun as an energy source, a photovoltaic solar plant of 10kW of installed power, a fast-charging station for electric vehicles in direct current.
This project is of great importance for Ecuador and demonstrates the progress that has been made in terms of sustainable mobility in the country. Besides, it is a call for action to the region, since in Latin America 80% of air pollution is caused by traffic, and the number of privately owned vehicles increases at a rapid pace. Therefore, it is imperative that Latin America accelerate its transition towards a sustainable transport system.
In Enersac, we want to contribute to the transition towards sustainable transport in Latin American cities. We have the knowledge and experience necessary for the development of integral charging solutions for electric vehicles and the evaluation of innovative business models such as car-sharing or the rental of electric vehicles.
