Existing type 2 EVSE to openevse upgrade

hi all

I have solar and a diy powerwall and emonpi

I have a standard type 2 charger outside for my hybrid now I just tend to charge when I see the solar is max but planning on getting an electric only car

with this in mind I want 100% of my excess solar to go to charging the car if its on the drive looks like evse can do this

do I need to replace the whole set up or is there a way to upgrade what I have already

thanks

Arden

Hi Arden,

It could be possible to upgrade your existing charger, but it will require a fair bit of work. A while back I upgraded an old Rolec unit to use OpenEVSE controller see video. The OpenEVSE controller will work with any AC contactor.

We sell all the OpenEVSE parts individually: https://shop.openenergymonitor.com/charging/
