Solar and EV Charging

Recommended Posts

SolarEdge (http:// http://www.solaredge.com) seems to be a popular solar generation monitoring system with an API. Is anyone interested in creating a driver for it? It would be great to know when lots of solar energy is being generated and then trigger high energy use equipment.

 

One such use would be to charge an electric car when solar power is generated. Renault have an API for My Z.E. which allows for starting charging.

@Kevin L if they have a web gui bet you can use his driver for t3 screen to access the website.

I work for a Solar Company branching out into Energy Automation. We use a lot of SolarEdge inverters. I would love a driver for these (and Tesla Powerwall2).

The problem with monitoring solar generation is that we know alot about what power is being generated but we don't get a full picture of the usage in the home.  What is more useful is the incoming mains as we get a good picture of what is coming in and what is going out.

Our eGauge driver for example can monitor multiple circuits and be programmed to react to import / export of these circuits.  Great if you want whole home energy monitoring / management.
