Version 10.1

- Forecast: you can start animation of forecast from given time up to now

Version 10.0

- Due to great interest in the project and the need to launch another servers, we (with heartache) are introducing small subscriptions. The subscription cost is PLN 10/10kWh/month of batteries (about EUR 2.22/10kWh/month) or PLN 100/10kWh/year (about EUR 22.2/10kWh/year).
- Existing users automatically receive lifetime free subscriptions for believing in the program.
- There is a 14-day free subscription to test the program.

Version 9.8

- Schedules: You can define periods to limit charge (eg. at night). This has lower limit that charge limit on schedule.

Version 9.7

Version 9.3

- Fast setup: After creating Plant, you can continue setting the program in new FastSetup module.

Version 9.2

Version 4.1

- Profits: special operation: massive change of sale price for given month (specially for users from Poland)
- Profits: new indicator: 'Self-Consumption'

Version 4.0

- New options for Price<0: 'Disconnect from grid' (Inverter only mode: This is good if you have AC-inverter (AC-coupled PV) connected to AC-Out) and 'Switch off "DC-coupled PV - feed in excess"' (This is good if you have DC-inverter).
- Discharge: program automaticaly decrease GridSetPoint in such way that batery discharge should last whole hour
- New option in Profit: 'Hour balance' . It should be checked in Poland where Electricity suppliers calcualate bilance of sell and buy energy. If sell&gr;buy then this is sell (value := sell-buy). If buy&gr;sell then this is sell (value:= sell-buy). So never during full hour we have both sell and buy on bill.
- Schedulers: During schedule you can setup 'Input limit' (total limit for transfer power to/from frid) or 'Charge limit' (in Ampers). This is useful when you have limit eg. 2500W for getting power from grid.
