SMARTER SOLUTIONS FOR SMARTER BUILDINGS
The nature of ownership in multi-residential buildings has traditionally made it difficult and expensive to implement charging in parking areas. There are also more limitations on the amount of power available for charging. This makes managing and administering billing for energy usage more difficult.
At Unico Power, we do things differently.
We use real-time demand management to ensure that tenants in Condos and Apartments can charge at home without the high costs to themselves or their fellow non-EV driving neighbours. We treat your building like the living, breathing beast it is.
That means we take into account all the differences that make it unique, and we give you a solution that works. It's not only about who's parking in the stalls, it's about creating and maintaining a system that integrates itself seamlessly with all the other functioning parts.
It's not just about a charging station, it's about the systems that make it work, and how those systems can benefit you.
But we don't stop there, the Unico Power solution works equally well for any location where multiple vehicles need to charge at once - parking garages, fleets, commercial buildings, and hotels.

By 2035, all vehicles sold in Canada will be zero-emission. Will your building be ready?
Energy Management and Control System
As its name implies, this is the brains of the system. Cerebro is where all of the usage is tracked, system performance is monitored, data is stored, and the billing is managed. Cerebro is a secure cloud based server hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Cerebro stays connected to each building Maestro, but if for any reason the internet service is interrupted, your building will continue to operate normally, charging will continue, and all usage data will be stored locally on the Maestro. Everything gets uploaded to Cerebro once the internet connection is restored.
Are you ready for the future? Cerebro is. Cerebro can quickly and easily adjust to new utility rates and policies, new features such as automated demand response, and the integration of batteries and solar into your building’s infrastructure.

Manage EV loads to limit building demand charges
Utilize existing capacity for more EVs
Our Intelligent Energy Management System maximizes use of the building's existing infrastructure by sharing the building's limited spare power across multiple charging stations, while still ensuring every vehicle gets fully charged every night.
The system works with our smart Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSEs) to allow 4-10x more electric vehicles to charge on a single circuit, and reduces charging levels at peak times to save more on electricity bills.
