What is Virtual SolarCharge?
Virtual SolarCharge is like harnessing the energy of the sun right into your EV - bringing you a more sustainable home-charging experience. You can drive on sunshine, confident that your CO2 impact is even lower than before.
At Monta, we're constantly setting a new standard in EV charging. With Virtual SolarCharge, we've created a feature that lets you tailor your home-charging experience to fit your lifestyle - precisely, comfortably, and sustainably.
Offering the best EV charging service can quickly become costly and complicated for businesses
Homeowners who want to charge their EVs with solar energy may need to spend more time and money to make it happen.
What is Monta’s solution?
100% solar energy
Monta's Virtual SolarCharge algorithm aligns solar energy supply with EV charging demand, enabling users to charge their EVs with 100% solar energy.
Zero modifications to existing solar setup
Any solar panel, inverter, and battery can be used with Virtual SolarCharge, along with any chargers that supports it.
No additional costs
Monta’s Virtual SolarCharge feature, like all Monta features, is free of charge to help drivers EV better.
Easy setup guaranteed
Setting up Virtual SolarCharge takes less than 5 minutes and can be done by simply anyone. No complex hardware integrations, new EV chargers with special sensors, or additional software tools are necessary - only the Monta app is needed.
Charging at no cost
With Virtual SolarCharge, homeowners can maximise the use of their solar panels to cut down on EV charging expenses at home. Depending on the user’s solar system setup, they might even charge their devices for free or at a minimal cost. This not only allows them to recover your initial investment more quickly but also supports a greener and more sustainable future.
How Virtual SolarCharge works
Charge Now + Virtual SolarCharge
EV drivers can ensure that their EVs are charged directly from their solar panels. Charging will automatically slow down if the sun is obstructed by clouds or stop if daylight ends.

Will SolarCharge work everywhere and for all charge point brands?
SolarCharge is compatible with charge points that support load balancing, ensuring broader compatibility across different brands. Initially, SolarCharge will be rolled out in Denmark and the UK in a staged process, with plans for a global release in the future. Take a look at our database of compatible charge points.
