News & Case Studies
Hospitals need to remain functional 24hrs a day. Digging up roads to install mains electric charging is costly, disruptive and hinders any Green Plans.
Solarcycle solved this challenge with an off-grid e-bike charging scheme. Staff at the hospital get access to free energy. It free’s up traffic, parking and free to charge for staff who choose carbonless commuting.

and many more …
How many Electric bikes can I charge?
Without getting technical it depends on your bikes and the types of journeys they perform as well as sunlight. In normal conditions our system will charge 10x UK road-legal e-bikes per day from 20%-80%, providing approximately 150 miles of carbonless travel. This suits average commuter journeys with plenty of contingency.
How long does charging take?
Most standard UK legal spec e-bikes take between 3 and 5 hours to charge fully at home or on our stations. Our system is identical to the mains power in this respect.
Does it work in the UK?
Eveyone’s favourite question. We have over specified the system to generate more than the minimum level of energy required. Even in winter, with fewer sunny days and shorter daylight hours, because the number of journeys diminishes it equals out. UV rays whch we can capture and convert. There are usually enough of these over a 7-day period to match the amount of cycle usage needed in each season.
How long does installation take?
The only installation needed is bolting the posts to the ground and connecting them to your SolarcycleUK station. A maintenace team can complete this within 4 hours.
