Manually adjusting isn't load management. The OP needs his charging point to run at 7Kw overnight, provided there is sufficient capacity. If a load comes on (maybe washing machine and dishwasher on timers) then the point may need to ramp down for a while. The PODPoint can do this and is cheapest OLEV unit that can AFAIK.My emonEVSE can be set digitally to limit the current in 2A increments from 6A up to 32A.
Useful if OP has or plans to get PV, but I am sure would work out a lot more expensive than a standard PODPoint install.Well, in which case you add the emonpi and it monitors what the house is using and can demand shape the charger. This is how I'm set-up, but for me it's to balance solar.
No, surprisingly most do not have a load monitoring feature. Tesla, Rolec and Chargemaster to name three. OLEV units do have to offer demand side management, but that is different.I'm sure all home ev chargers have to be able to throttle load as necessary
Personally I would get quotes for Podpoint, ChargedEV and Zappi - the last two support PV. Make sure quotes are like for like.I did have the idea of adding solar at some point but no active plans just yet. So what I'm reading is that Zappi is advised for that however, its more expensive?
