2. Overview

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 EN 62196 and EN 61851-1 plug-in electric vehicle standards.

zappi works like any regular charging point but has special ECO charging modes that will benefit homeowners with grid-tied microgeneration systems e.g. 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 charger.

A grid current sensor (supplied) simply clips around the incoming supply cable and is used to monitor excess power. When using the special ECO charge modes, zappi will automatically adjust the charge rate in response to available surplus.
