Sense helped me identify a failing circuit breaker

I had a circuit breaker that was tripping when I charged my electric vehicle. I was able to tell in Sense that it was drawing 24 amps, and the breaker is rated for 30 amps. I bought a replacement circuit breaker and replaced it myself – I didn’t have to call an electrician or spend time on the phone with tech support for my EVSE!

Share how you used the Sense app to help. Be specific!:
I checked the power usage before and after starting to charge the car to ensure it was staying within the expected 24 amp limit. When the breaker tripped, I was able to look at exactly how much power was cut, and this confirmed that the breaker was tripping when it shouldn't have been.
