It’s not clear to me exactly how this affects when your car charges, but it seems interesting nonetheless.
From reading it, it says all energy imported is a flat rate of 8p per kwh. That’s really super low.
But I’m guessing octopus have coated this as the number of households that
- Have a drive
- Have enough money / space for solar
- And have enough money to own a tesla
Aren’t that many as per the whole population, there are many households with no drive.
Seems an interesting proposition.
I got a quote for a power wall and solar install on my own home and they wouldn’t quote me because I had an odd roof said I’d never make the money back
As time moves on I think in home battery even without solar will make sense as you can charge the batteries overnight at a low rate and use them in the day just like you do a car really I guess.
Or indeed get paid to charge your batteries:
