What is the cost of the Solivus Arc?

How much will my installation cost?

Installation costs would need to be determined by a survey, the costs here are largely centred around routing of the cable from the house distribution board and the Arc location. When the Arc is in production we will be offering all deposit holders a survey to assess the property and installation needs.

INSTALLATION

How big is the Solivus Arc?

The Solivus Arc has a diameter of 2 metres and a hight of 1.4 metres.

How is the Solivus Arc secured to the ground?

The Solivus Arc is sturdy in nature but will need to be anchored or fixed to the ground in case of extreme weather conditions.  

To secure the Arc to the ground we use a security key to open the back panel, inside the back cupboard is the location of the fixings to the ground and also where you can place ballast (weights) instead.

How is the Solivus Arc connected to my home? Can it power my EV?

The Arc is connected to the home distribution board (fuse box), from here the electricity can be used in the home or used to power your electric vehicle charge, topped up by grid power if needed.

We are designing our Solivus Arc to last for at least 20 years and warranty arrangements will be in line with this.

The Solivus Arc can be removed by a qualified electrician, but it may need to be reinstalled by an approved Solivus electrician. It can be easily disconnected, dismantled in to 3 sections and reinstalled at the new property.
