In most cases a photovoltaic (PV) system, otherwise known as solar power, can be installed in order to charge vehicles with solar power when there is enough sunshine.
In principle, the performance of the Easee charging robots can be adjusted by the owner at any time via the Easee app. This goes from 6 A up to the maximum fuse circuit value set by the installer.
The Easee advantage
The considerable advantage of the Easee charging robots is that, thanks to automatic and dynamic phase compensation, which is integrated in each charging robot, it can charge steplessly from 1.4 to 22 kW (max 11 kW for Easee Lite) - practically all other charging stations only charge from 3.7 kW. This means that Easee can charge with solar power even when the power generated by the PV system is much lower or when there is less solar radiation.
An automated solution
In order to establish an automated solution with Easee chargers, an additional energy management device is required which measures the incoming electricity and household consumption and receives the data or energy values from the PV system. From this data, the Equalizer can communicate with your charging robot at necessary minimum values of the generated PV energy via the Easee Cloud or locally. The communication then generates commands to start and stop the charging process, as well as whether 3-phase or 1-phase charging is set. This depends on the generated PV energy.
The connection is usually made via the HAN port of the smart meter. However, there are often differences between the different manufacturers of smart meters, how the protocols (interface language) are set up, since no standard has yet been established on the market.
