EV Solar Charging with Powersensor

Using a Powersensor energy monitor allows you to use Charge HQ with all makes of rooftop solar when combined with a compatible EV or Wall Charger.

It is commonly used to provide solar & grid monitoring for users who either a) have solar inverters not directly supported by Charge HQ, or b) would like to add grid monitoring to their existing solar system.

Powersensor energy meters are compatible with Charge HQ. The energy meters are compatible with all makes and models of rooftop solar and involve an additional meter (as pictured) being installed at your home.

All three versions of the Powersensor are compatible, Advanced Solar, Essential Solar and Energy Solution.
Note that Powersensor currently only have support for single phase homes. They do not support sites with home batteries.

Note: As at March 2024, Powersensor support is still in the testing phase and may be subject to ongoing refinements.

Availability & Installation

Powersensor energy monitors are sold in Australia online.

Installation can be completed by the home owner.

Supported Configurations

Only a single source of solar or home energy data is supported. Where both a supported solar inverter (with no energy meter) and a Powersensor is installed, only the Powersensor should be connected to Charge HQ.

Charge HQ supports the following Powersensor products:

Advanced Solar
When used with a single inverter
- 1 x Powersensor installed on solar inverter output
- 1 x Powersensor installed on grid connection

All solar charging features in Charge HQ will work.

Essential Solar & Energy Solution
When used with one or more inverters
- 1 x Powersensor installed on grid connection
- Solar inverter not monitored

The solar icon will always show zero production. The grid connection icon will show net imports or exports (allowing for solar production and home energy consumption).

All solar charging features in Charge HQ will work.

Home Battery
Charge HQ will have limited functionality with a home battery and Powersensor, because it can't see what the battery is doing. The home battery will usually charge before the EV, although this may reverse at times.
