Solar only mode means that we will only charge your vehicle with the power your solar panels produce. To do this we will vary the power provided by the charger so that it matches the power produced by the solar panels. We will not import any energy from the grid to charge your car. Your charging will be truly carbon neutral!
For solar only mode to work, your solar panels need to produce more than 1400w for your car to charge. If they are producing less, then no charge will go into your car.
At the moment, this feature is only available for users with a compatible charger.
How do I enable Solar only smart charging?
- Head to the Smart tab and select Solar
- Turn on Solar smart charging and select Solar only
Please note that this mode will ignore your ready by time and will only charge when there is enough solar energy. This can mean that your car may not be ready when you need it. If this is the case, you can switch to Solar + Grid which will top up your car from the grid and make sure you are ready for your ready by time.
