Charge HQ dynamically adjusts the charging power to match the available energy from your rooftop solar PV system.
Solar tracking modes allow you to choose between pure solar only charging or using a mix of solar + grid energy when solar production is low.
Solar tracking allows you to use more of your own solar energy to charge your EV and to reduce the amount of solar which is sent to the grid. This increases your home's self-sufficiency and reduces your charging costs.
Charge HQ can communicate directly with home batteries via APIs and take them into account via intelligent control algorithms.
This enables solar and battery owners to choose between prioritising charging of the EV or home battery from excess solar.
Not everyone can install rooftop solar, and those who can don't always have sufficient excess energy to charge their EV when they're able to plug-in.
The next best option is charging when there's a large amount of renewable energy generation on the grid.
For Australian users (NEM states), Charge HQ maintains a live feed of grid level renewable generation, and allows automation of charging based on user defined limits.
Australian users who are Amber Electric customers can also automate charging based on their live wholesale energy rates.
A uniquely fine grained level of control over EV charging is possible, including setting of:
