I’m a little slow, but how does this actually work? Like when I plug it in an outlet, how does it know when solar or wind energy is being used or available? Modern technology blows my mind man.

100% correct.

Also, it only engages if you have a consistent pattern of charging, eg you charge it overnight every night at roughly the same time.
