The ZAPPI is a smart EV charger with a difference. Not only does it operate as a traditional EV charger, it can also charge your EV using 100% FREE energy generated from your Solar PV or wind turbine when configured in Eco Max mode.
The ZAPPI is connected via a CT current clamp to the main house circuit. The ZAPPI can be configured to stop charging the car when the house starts importing power from the grid.
This happens when the power generated by the solar panels reduces as the sun goes down.
The ZAPPI can adjust the rate of charge to match the rate at which power is produced by a solar panel array. If the array is producing 5 kW then the ZAPPI charges the electric car at 5 kW per hour. If the array is producing 3 kW then the ZAPPI charges the electric car at 3 kW per hour. This ensures that the car is always charged from the solar array and never from the grid.
The ZAPPI can be configured to bypass the solar and operate in grid mode at certain times of the day or at night.
Pays for itself in two years (10 kWh per day * 365 * $0.25).
