Continuously enhance your inverter configuration by combining consumption statistics, weather forecasts, and load-shedding information.
Powerpilot Predictive Energy Optimiser is our state-of-the-art energy optimiser. By analyzing historical usage patterns, weather forecasts and load-shedding schedules, it ensures that your batteries are charged when necessary and have enough capacity for anticipated solar energy.
Our optional home automation integration allows excess solar energy to be automatically used for optional loads, like heating your pool. Non-essential loads can also be automatically disconnected when your batteries are low.
The following information is combined to continually update your inverter:
Powerpilot Predictive Energy Optimiser offers the following benefits:

Our energy optimiser is currently compatible with Victron, SunSynk and Deye inverters. Certain restrictions apply to specific configurations. If you have a different type of inverter, please contact us for further information.
Our optimiser uses numerous factors, including historical power usage, forecast weather and load-shedding, expected shadows on the solar panels, moisture in the air, and direct, reflected and ambient sunlight. Our machine-learning model continuously predicts consumption and availability and adjusts your inverter accordingly.
Eskom recently introduced "Load Limiting" in Sandton and Fourways. During load-shedding hours, houses can use up to 10A. If you exceed 10A, your power will be disconnected until the end of the Load Shedding. Powerpilot Optimiser can be configured to automatically reduce the grid power used, drawing excess power from your batteries. This feature is currently being tested on Victron inverters but should be available on other inverters shortly.
We are currently able to interface directly with Nice/ELAN, C-Bus and Shelly devices. We also have limited support for Sonoff. In addition, Nice/ELAN is able to integrate your inverter information into the ELAN display pages. We are actively developing interfaces to other automation systems based on demand.
In most cases, Powerpilot Optimiser pays for itself, while ensuring that you have power available when there is load shedding and using excessive energy to power optional loads. We will immediately advise you if we do not believe that Call us to discuss your requirements.
We work with partners who can install inverters, solar panels, batteries and home automation systems. Contact us for more information.
Trigger conditions are regularly evaluated based on the latest inverter data. Events such as power failures, unexpected power outages, low battery, or excess solar energy are monitored based on your requirements. If any of these conditions are detected, actions such as switching off heaters or lights can be configured.
Multiple actions can be defined for a single condition. If there is excess solar energy, for example, your geyser could switch on for 10 minutes, followed by your pool pump for 15 minutes.
For a limited time, we are offering a free, no-obligation trial for houses in Gauteng with certain types of inverters. Call us today to find out if your configuration qualifies.
