Use the Smile5 hybrid invert for smart charging your EV

The Smile5 hybrid inverter from AlphaESS has 2 programmable auxiliary contacts by default.  We used one of these contacts to control the smart charging of a plug-in hybrid car. Smart in this case means that the car is only charged when a surplus of electricity is generated by the PV panels.

We’ve tested it out for you.  You can read more about this case here: Smart EV Charging UK
