Battery Management

The battery management page is to enable the user to set the Sundial battery storage system into charge or discharge mode.

By doing this the Sundial system can be overridden from the default (auto) operation from which charging or discharging occurs from the buildings energy measurement.  When in charge mode, the battery can be timed to charge from grid electricity during periods of low cost energy, for example at night, depending on the buildings energy tariff.
