Minimum Green Level is a setting within Zappi to allow those who may not have enough solar capacity to allow for a purely surplus-based charge.
When is set to a Min Green Level of 100% you will need in excess of around 1.4kW of surplus energy available to start the charge. If the surplus falls below the 1.4kW threshold the charge will pause until the threshold is once again met. After a short delay will resume charge.
If preferable, you can set the to share power from the grid and a generation source to ensure a charge is always maintained. The Min Green Level could be set to 50%. A charge will then start when there is a surplus of 0.70kW, taking a further 0.70kW from the grid or a battery if one is fitted.
It is worth noting that this is only required to start a charge. If a higher amount of surplus becomes available it will be consumed, resulting in less being drawn from the grid.
You can alter the green level in two places, the App and Locally on Zappi.
Via the app, you want to tap into the Zappi Icon:
