What is SolarStart?

SolarStart is an automotive battery charging solution designed for short journey or multi-drop vehicles. SolarStart is the result of material science developments and deposition techniques that have facilitated the evolution of a true automotive specification solar panel.

The panel is 2mm thin, shatterproof, flexible, self cleaning and has outstanding performance. It is applied directly to the vehicle roof and can be produced in bespoke sizes to suit the requirement. TVG have combined this technology with high performing vehicle integration modules to produce a revolutionary solar charging solution for vehicles.

TVG have been developing the product for the last 18 months and have now finished trials for automotive application. Contact us today for the trial data, to see for yourself the benefits SolarStart could bring to your fleet.

How does SolarStart work?

step-1

Free energy

This system charges the battery every moment of the day, when driving, when parked, even when it’s just daylight and no direct sun. It is a permanent installation on the vehicle, and requires zero driver involvement

step-2

Informed

Connect SolarStart to TVG’s Fleet Management SaaS and review your entire fleet’s battery levels from your office, over-the-air. Receive notifications when a battery incident is about to happen and monitor your fleet’s battery health.

step-3

Savings

Solar power to your batteries is FREE. Power that is generated through solar reduces the fuel used to power the alternator, which in turn reduces harmful CO2 / NOx emissions and saves on your fleets fuel costs.
