Charge HQ communicates with SolarEdge Solar Inverters to allow you to charge your EV from your home solar with a compatible EV or supported wall charger.
All SolarEdge solar inverters and hybrid inverters (with DC-coupled batteries) are supported.
If your DC coupled battery is visible in the SolarEdge app, it will be visible to Charge HQ.
All SolarEdge consumption meters connected to SolarEdge inverters are supported.
Charge from gross solar production
EV charging can be matched to gross solar production for all Internet connected SolarEdge solar Inverters.
Charge from excess solar production
Where an optional SolarEdge energy 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 an optional grid meter installed to monitor home energy consumption. For SolarEdge inverters, your options include:
Supplied by SolarEdge these meters integrate directly with the SolarEdge inverter and provides visibility of all of your home energy consumption in the SolarEdge app. Contact your solar installer for supply and installation.
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.

AC Coupled batteries
Users with a SolarEdge 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.
