Audi Centre Centurion has rolled out a solar solution to aid in powering the dealership and its electric vehicle chargers.

The dealership and SMA, together with ANH Technologies, have installed 53 kWp of photovoltaic (PV) solar power on the roof of the premises.

A total of 112 solar power panels have been put up, which the dealership says “substantially reduces its reliance on the grid”.

The new system also allows for the charging of four Audi e-tron (electric) vehicles, in AC and DC power, at the same time, using solar power.

It also offers load management functionality to ensure “measurable electricity cost savings”. 

“Audi Centre Centurion can use up to 53 kWp of the solution to generate solar power for increased self-consumption, and it can store solar power in 67 kWh backup batteries to cater for high demand and peak times,” says Audi South Africa head Sascha Sauer.

In addition to the larger solar platform installed on-site, Audi Centre Centurion has included a smaller 8 kWp home system that showcases how Audi e-tron customers can charge their electric vehicles at their homes, using solar energy.
