A Fun Car powered with solar energy

For the time in French Polynesia and since april the 27th 2015, Avis Bora Bora has launched new electric fun cars 100% charged with solar energy.

The electricity from the local network is produced with generators. Using this energy coming from gasoline for our electric cars was nonsense.

That is why we have decided to install 44 solar panels on our depot (approx 75 square meters of panels). This installation has a capacity of 11 kWc, which means that when the weather is good we can produce 35 kWh. This enables us to charge 6 Twizys completely in one day.

During the day, our vehicles are charged directly with the energy we produce and we sell back the excess production to the local network. If the production is nt sufficient or if we have cars returning at the end of the day, we charge our vehicles the night buying the electricity from the network

After one year of exploitation we have a positive balance, as we produced 1,6 times our consumption of electricity. 11 000 kWH of production for 7 000 kWh of consumption.

Please do not hesitate to contact us concerning this project and to visit our installation if you are interested in this project !!!

The Renault Twizy is a vehicle specially adapted to Bora Bora.

For this project we have chosen the Renault Twizy 45. It is a fun vehicle, really pleasant to drive and its characteristic really suit to the needs of our customers on Bora Bora.

Limited to 45 km/h and without license, it enables to visit the island Bora Bora freely in a secure and eco-friendly manner.

It is easy to drive and it is perfect to enjoy Bora Bora amazing landscapes without any noise. Come to try it !!!
