Charge HQ communicates with Goodwe Solar Inverters to allow you to charge from your home solar with a compatible EV or supported wall charger.
Charge HQ currently has support for the following GoodWe equipment:
The following equipment is not currently supported:
If you have any of the equipment on the unsupported list please contact us and we'll investigate adding support.
Charge from gross solar production
EV charging can be matched to gross solar production for all Internet supported Goodwe solar Inverters.
Charge from excess solar production
Where an optional Homekit Smart Meter is installed, underlying energy usage in the home is taken into account allowing charging to match only the excess solar production.
If you would like to match your EV charging to excess solar production (rather than gross solar production) you will need a separate meter installed to monitor home energy consumption. For Goodwe inverters, your options include:
Supplied by Goodwe this monitor integrates directly with the Goodwe inverter provides visibility of all of your home energy consumption in the Goodwe app.
Stand alone solar and grid monitoring
A separate solar and grid monitor can be installed to provide Charge HQ with a compatible solar data source.
Australian users: Wattwatchers, Solar Analytics
AC Coupled batteries
Users with a Goodwe solar system that also have a supported AC coupled battery can rely on the battery integration which will include grid monitoring. A separate grid meter for the solar inverter is not required in such cases.
