Trying to use my Solar PV to partially charge the car whenever the British sun makes an appearance, I am finding that adjusting the charging rate in line with PV output is a pain. I seem to remember that the bigger and costlier version of the BMW Wallbox has a PV solar intergration, but not sure if this also automatically adjusts the i3's charging rate.
It would be great if an intelligent enough PV inverter could communicate with the vehicle to adjust charging rate. This could be done via a BMW-provided and regulated API. However it could also be achieved with an IFTTT service, which is more likely and would still allow for all the safeguarding options.
In addition, it would be great to build charging rate change functionality into the iRemote app.
