Why did you purchase this particular unit?
This inverter replaced my existing solar inverter which I will use on another solar array. The new inverter enables to charge at 7.4kW using smart settings for excess solar and off-peak electricity. Garage is 60 metres from house so no extra cabling required.

Tell us about your home charging routine.
Simple charging. I have two EVs and during the day one car is constantly plugged in therefore using any excess solar available. If additional charging is needed I can either go to full charging and it will charge with a mixture of solar and grid. If I require a full charge for the next day I can schedule Economy 7, charging overnight with 50kWh.
If you were buying a new charging unit now, what would you buy and why?
The Solaredge 6000H Inverter/EV Charger. Fitting a standalone smart charger would be problematic as the cable run would be in excess of 50 metres and difficult to obtain data info to link with excess solar generation.
Tell us about your electricity provider and tariff. Would you recommend them?
EDF fixed until Nov’22 gives night rate 7 hours at 6.29p, day rate 22p and standing charge 20p. I use very little day rate. Solar generates 8,000 units per annum. Usage 12000 units. FIT payments £450 pa. Payments to EDF £400. Installing additional panels this spring bringing our total array to 12kWp.
Are you part of a charger-sharing scheme for those who don’t have their own charger?
No, too remote and charging not accessible.
