OpenEVSE charger with loadbalancing?

I’m using emonTx to monitor energyusage with import/export in a house fitted with solarpanels.

Now we are about to buy our first all electric car and are planning to install a charger at our home. In Sweden we use three phases and I think we have 20A, so … up to 13-14 kW ?

My electrician says though that we really need to have load-balancing on the charger to limit the power to it based on other usage in the house.

Does the charger from OpenEnergyMonitor offer this function ?

No, I’m afraid the OpenEVSE does not have load balancing. This is a feature which is being discussed and may be implemented in the future:

Currently, you can set the current manually via the OpenEVSE web interface,
