Microgeneration systems, such as Solar PV and small wind turbines, are at their most efficient when the generated energy is consumed on-site rather than exporting it to the grid. This is what we call ‘self-consumption’.
zappi is a Mode 3 charging station, compatible with all electric vehicles that comply with SAE J1772, EN62196 and EN61851 plug-in electric vehicle standards.
zappi works like any regular charging point but has special eco charging modes which will benefit homeowners with grid-tied microgeneration systems, like wind or solar generation. Two special ECO charging modes automatically adjust charging current in response to on-site generation and household power consumption. In FAST charge mode, zappi operates like an ordinary EV charging.
A grid current sensor (supplied) simply clips around the incoming supply cable. This sensor is used to monitor excess power and when using the special ECO charge modes, zappi automatically adjusts the charge rate in response to available surplus.
