Finland has an ace up its sleeve in terms of installed electric vehicle charging. In a country with 3 million cars, more than 1 million parking spaces are already equipped with electric poles for engine heaters.
1 million charging spots in Finland Via a simple process all those poles can be turned into charging stations, including features of remote control, and monthly invoicing for electricity consumed.
Jiri Resenen, CEO of Parkkisehke encourages more EVs in Finland in connection with the Tesla Model 3 debut today – “Elon, We Are Ready !”
“In the parking system, the old heating elements of the car are updated as a smart plug. Parking power works like a mobile operator: The owner of the subscription pays a monthly fee, and the cost of charging for the electricity consumed is done through monthly invoicing. Park electrical combines traditional heating and electric car charging as a seamless service package.
The same interface goes everywhere you see the P-symbol for Parkkis Power. No more credit card information, no pin codes, no coins, no separate payment cards, no even sending text messages. The parking system does not have mechanical keys, but the pole is opened electronically. Use is effortless and precise.
The user can schedule the car’s heating on the Android and IOS smartphone or the net. Everyone has to come up with unexpected expenses that they could not have planned in advance. Traditional car heating with pre-set timing does not help. Instead, the operator of a parking power system will start charging from your smartphone as soon as the situation so demands. And enjoy the warm car.
The shelf also saves electricity because the heating can be adjusted outdoors according to the prevailing temperature.”
