Solar Power Priority

    If you have everything installed -- what is the typical order of priority for a typical irish home?

    Is it Sun ==> House Load ===> Battery ===> EDDI ===> Car ===> Back to Grid

    Is this correct? Do people set this up any differently sometimes?

    That is the way I run it. As the zappi doesn't start until 1.4kW excess then having the Eddi first makes more sense imo.

    I tend to put the Zappi and Eddi both as equal priority. I find it better at soaking up excess generation.

    When generation falls below 1.4kW, the Eddi will soak that up. The generation is above 2.9kW the Eddi is insufficient to soak up all the export by itself.

    Didn't realise you could have two the same, just looking online I can see this can be done in the advanced settings. Always done it through the app.

    Everyday is a school day😁
