1. I am renovating my garage and I want to install an EVSE to provide a degree of "future proofing" my house. I do not have 3phase but have run cable for 40A load. Ideally, I would like a unit able to accept type1 or type2 cable to provide maximum flexibility since I haven't bought an EV yet.
So, can anyone recommend a suitable brand?
2. I have solar panels on my house and I am keen to get an EV to help soak up excess generation. I was thinking of using a small solar panel to close a relay when the sun is out so that the EV charges only when the house panels are active. (Manual override of course)
