We recently had a ProjectEV Smart (ha!) chargepoint installed at home (OZEV scheme), but while we are waiting for the manufacture to come and sort out a crucial software issue, I have experimented with a scheduled charge program (as the charger is currently set to always on, dumb mode).
The scheduled charge works most of the time (possibly the known Renault app issue), but what doesn’t seem to work is commencing another charge period without unlocking and relocking the cable. Basically the connection times out and the ZOE is left stuck trying to communicate with the chargepoint.
I am going to raise this with ProjectEV when they visit this week, as the whole point of getting their (highly recommended by local MCS and OZEV installer) chargepoint was solar / ‘time of use‘ tariff integration, so leaving the car plugged in to take excess solar/charge on cheap tariff won’t currently work. Perhaps there’s a setting they need to change.
However, I would great appreciate finding out if this a known issue with ZOE, ie do only certain smart chargepoints work with it correctly/might ZOE need a software update?
I have a 68 plate ZE40 R110.
Thank you for any advice anyone might be able to give me!
