This Strategy uses the battery to smooth the load.
Use the battery to save you money.
A mix between Saver and Economical.

* Current Battery stats based on the 7kW Tesla Powerwall costing $3,000 USD, with added charge loss to account for the DC-AC conversion. more information on Tesla powerall click here
** Amount to multiply your generation energy e.g. default file has a 1 kWh system so changing the scaler to 2 would make it a 2 kWh system
This Strategy uses the battery to smooth the load. This smoothing is achieved by charging the battery when energy usage is below "Limit" and discharging when it is above "Limit". This strategy is more Energy Efficient and allows for better use of renewable energy.
Use the battery to save you money. This strategy charges when price is low and discharges when it is high.
A mix between Saver and Economical. This strategy will charge when price is low and try smooth usage to "Limit".
Smart Battery Usage For Months: To:
Adjust Limit to allow the battery to smooth usage over "Lookahead" hours.
Charge battery to maximum capacity within:
Charge the EV evenly up until plug out.
Charge the EV as fast as possible.
Use the EV like a Home battery and try have enough energy for the next trip by plug out.
