As part of the PORT-PVEV project, three solar charging stations were installed at Ċirkewwa Ferry Terminal, Ta’Xbiex Marina and Deep Water Quay Car park in Valletta, providing a further 6 charging pillars to the national network. The car ports were covered with PV panels, creating a total potential output of 17,246kWh per annum per site. Each solar carport houses 2 dual charges pillars, one connected to the grid and the other connected to the on-site battery pack (24kWh which stored solar power produced on site) as well as to the grid.
