The myenergi app allows you to control and monitor your myenergi devices, in real-time, from anywhere in the world.
You choose whether you want your libbi to charge using energy generated from your solar or wind generation (Green energy) or a mixture of generation and grid. There is a simple tick box in the myenergi app for you to set this option. You can change this at any time.
1. Green only charging
To use only the energy generated by your solar or wind generation, click the battery symbol on the home screen of your myenergi app, then untick the box labelled “Enable charging from the grid”. When unticked libbi will never pull any energy from the grid.
2. Green and Grid Charging
If you would like to utilise a time of use tariff, where prices are typically cheaper overnight, simply click on the battery symbol on the home screen of the myenergi app, then tick the box labelled “Enable charging from the grid” under “Charging Preferences”
libbi will always store your generated energy first before pulling anything from the grid. If you are on a dual rate tariff you will need to enter your tariff details into the myenergi app to enable charging from the grid. This way libbi knows when it is cheaper for you to use energy and it will only pull from the grid at these cheapest times.
3. Grid Only Charging
For customers with no solar or wind generation, you can still have a myenergi libbi. If no generation is present at the property, the box labelled “Enable charging from the grid” will need to be ticked, as the grid will be the only source of energy for your libbi.
You will need to input your electricity tariff details into the app before you can start to charge, so libbi knows when it is cheapest for you and will choose to take and store energy at these cheaper times of the day.
