ev.energy's solution is software only, so it works with any hardware. That's great, as it means you don't need to pay for specialist hardware to make it work. It also means you can get going straight away.
We do recognize however that solar chargers are becoming increasingly popular. A solar smart charger further refines your charging schedule, ensuring your charger ramps up and down, if clouds cause a temporary fall in output from your array. That's why we are in the process of integrating a range of smart chargers into the platform. For example, our solution is compatible with the solar matching mode on the Indra Smart Pioneer, and we are continually integrating more smart chargers.
Using ev.energy with a smart charger like the Indra Smart Pioneer will give you the best solar smart charging solution on the market: ev.energy's algorithm forecasts your solar output, integrates dynamic tariffs, and enables you to earn rewards for charging from the grid at the best times.
Even without a smart charger, the savings are significant. Our beta testing proved that we can save our customer money by making better use of zero carbon home generated energy, without the need for specialist hardware.
