The car is pure electric and variants hybrid plug-in cars of combustion are gradually winning a place in the preferences of the buyers , and offer more models in the market. Its main benefits are its zero emissions of CO2 in circulation, and the possibility of "feed them" with electric energy from renewable sources.
But there are also many questions that it generates, given the limited number of charging points public, the difficulties of installing a charging point at home, and even the possible price of the current at the time of charge as usual to our car.
According to Emilio Bravo, CEO of the power company Lucera, "the electric car has been positioned, as the ideal means of transport to achieve a radical change in society's relationship with the environment, but it is also important that the loads to use energy from renewable sources, such as the that offers, Lucera, a pioneer in providing light at cost price".
According to explain from this company, the recharging of the battery of the electric car means to travel about 100km it will not cost more than two euros in general terms. In any case, not all of the batteries of electric cars are the same , or have the same capacity, in addition to price variations of the light make it more difficult to give a figure stable. The amount also depends on the type of recharge that the user wishes to do, as it can be normal (5-8 hours), semi-rapid (1.5-3 hours) or quick (5 to 30 minutes). As the recharge time decreases will be necessary increased power and intensity of loading, which add to the figure.
“The electric car is already a reality, and users are increasingly aware of their impact on sustainable mobility.
The challenge for the next few years is to reduce load speeds and increase the amount of charging points, with the aim of improving their availability. In Lucera we are convinced that the electric car is the transport medium of the future for its sustainable and respectful with the environment,” says Emilio Bravo.
Due to the confusion experienced by the buyer is brand-new, Lucera highlights where and how to load the car:
-home: The installation of a charging point is the first step to have a source of energy for the electric car. To do this, it is not essential to have a single garage, the user can also do it in the communal car park. Then, the recharge will depend on the contracted rate that the user has and the percentage of the battery that you want to upload. Lucera points out that it is possible that, depending on the rate, it is necessary to make a change in the contract, due to the evolution of the size of the batteries in the last time.
Now the electric companies have a tariff intended for electric cars call Tariff 2.0 DHS. The same is designed for a maximum power of 10kW. In this sense, Lucera alert consumers of the regulated market must take into account that prices are set to every hour depending on the demand in each time slot. The use of this fee allows a saving of money to the recharge your car in hours in which there is less demand for energy, which is usually at night.
-In a electrolinera: as a general rule, recharge your electric car away from home is usually more expensive, but if the installation of a charging point at home is a great investment, there are a number of electrolineras and charging points distributed in different areas of the city that tend to be free, but they are still scarce. Although if they go forward, the Government plans the number will increase significantly.
Lucera has a rate of time discrimination of three periods for those who are already convinced and have made an investment with the electric car. Users can order a power of 10kW (that have the most households) or to the housing of a larger size (villas or townhouses) 10kW to 15kW. With a simple model based on a monthly subscription of 3,90 euro per month, users can expect light cost price and advice from the company to save on the bill and be more energy-efficient.Updated Date: 21 September 2019, 17:01
