    Everything you wanted to know about Intelligent Octopus But Were Afraid To Ask

    I've had a reply from Google that its been done and it now shows correctly when I open Google maps. That only took 4 days, it might be worth trying again? Our house is No.4 our garage is No. 16 :) according to them.. I'll have to get that fixed next.

    Everything you wanted to know about Intelligent Octopus But Were Afraid To Ask

    I think I've come to the conclusion that it may be the difference in addresses between where the Tesla says it is and my home address (next door). I've asked for Google to correct it, but how long that will take to work its way through to Tesla maps..

    Everything you wanted to know about Intelligent Octopus But Were Afraid To Ask

    Perfect timing @browellm . I'm in the process of switching from Go. Im struggling to understand how IO contacts my Tesla M3? I haven't given out any Tesla details? I've dumbed down my Ohme charger and signed out of the app and am in the process of trying to get a test charge. But all I get is...

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    I got 12.3.16 a few days ago and was down in Dundee (80 miles away) for a couple of days. The severe phantom braking is back, loss of 5 mph plus, due to different tarmac colours as far as I could see and the "snatch" when engaging autopilot is back. I'd just returned from a 2500 mile trip to the...

    Solar Panels UK - is it worth it?

    Might be of interest to those considering buying batteries. I just had an email from ITS Technologies who import the Pylontech batteries. They're having to raise prices on current orders. " We’re having to send out a very difficult update from Pylontech. Unfortunately, we've been losing an...

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    I did my first long trip on version .12 .3 2 (580 miles)and found that it was much easier at not grabbing on lane capture. Much less pressure on the steering wheel to stop the nagging. Almost no phantom braking and the 2 incidents were just to slow a couple of miles per hour not severe by any...

    Octopus Smart Meter Experiences

    I've written to the MSP, who having had no satisfactory reply from OVO and Octopus is going to forward it to the ombudsman abd possibly the press. Fingers crossed.

    Good one Charlie! Standing up.for yourself when stopped by the police.

    As by way of explanation. I posted originally in the UK and Ireland section as I believed this was of interest to Tesla owners living/driving in England or Wales. (Charlie owns an M3). Scotland has different laws where much more proof is required and as such there are 2 officers in each car...

    Solar Panels UK - is it worth it?

    If you already have a Pylontech battery it should be easy to add to as all the US series are compatible. 3 x 4.8 about £3900 or 4 x3.5 kWh £4800 from ITStechnologies and you can follow the youtube videos to add the new batteries yourself or get an electrician to add and save the VAT. And of...

    Almost time to choose tariff. Octopus reccomendations?

    I was dubious too, but found out that the 6 hour slot is for the house (batteries) as well as the car. I watched a youtube video interview Fully charged plus with Robert Llewellyn and Octopus CEO Greig Jackson. Worth watching to the end. Greig explained that any movement away from the...

    Almost time to choose tariff. Octopus reccomendations?

    I put the question on the Octopus Energy forums and this is what came back from Andy. "You do not have to do anything irreversible to your Ohme, or even contact Ohme. If you have a car API that is supported by Intelligent then all you need to do to the Ohme is delete all schedules, turn off...

    I watched a YouTube video last night which said you needed a OCPP charger. Perhaps they were wrong? @browellm I understood that if you ask them to make the charger dumb, you loose the ability to remake it smart again. The home assistant thing sounds great.. I'm waiting for my son who's just...

    I asked Ohme if their chargers are OCPP ready. Their reply below. "We are looking to get integrated with Octopus Intelligence, however I can't confirm a timeframe as to when this will be live yet." And "We will update everyone on our website and social media channels" So it looks like I'm...

    I was in conversation with Montrose Rope and Sail a couple of days ago as I had someone contact me about an I3 frunk bag and I believe the model Y frunk bag will be available shortly. Similar in construction to the pic in my avatar. Contact them to reserve one.

    Model 3 upper control arm issues

    When the mobile came out to me, I received a call in the morning, fairly heavy snow, he said he needed to do an upper control arm lubrication, I said fine and he turned up an hour later. He put a rubber glove on put some grease in his gloved hand and proceeded to rub the grease onto the Bush...

    Interesting! I had nothing but great service from Tesla, West Drayton and Aberdeen. But I'm not surprised to find there was a bad batch of front wheel bearings.

    Almost time to choose tariff. Octopus reccomendations?

    I am juggling power on sunny days at the moment .. using the heat pump, house appliances and car to keep the batteries from charging fully.. as I have to leave a buffer in the batteries for the NNW to Charge to in the afternoons otherwise it gets wasted. I should have said that I have no time to...
  29. exlatccatsa

    Almost time to choose tariff. Octopus reccomendations?

    Are the new batteries tax free? I had heard that it was only as part of a new installation? I'll have to investigate further.. that may make it worthwhile adding more NNW panels. It will not be borrowing to pay for the new batteries that would elongate payback time.
  30. exlatccatsa

    Almost time to choose tariff. Octopus reccomendations?

    Sorry, didn't mean to mislead. SSE are fully connected.. just NNW that have the restriction of batteries only. The NNW only really work April to August after 1600 but respond fairly well in partly cloudy days in the mornings as there's more reflected sunlight.

    Almost time to choose tariff. Octopus reccomendations?

    My Octopus Go tariff is up at the end of May. I'm trying to make sense of the options available. Looking for some comments and reccomendations. As I see it, my options are Go, Go Faster and intelligent Octopus. My setup. 5.6kWh solar SSE facing receiving last export FIT. 1.2kWh NNW facing just...

    Anyone had M3P brake discs replaced?

    The corrosion you see is the low point.. from this side... there's about a 1mm low point there in the disc at that point. I've measured it with a punch against the caliper. Yes I tend to have reduced regen all winter and clean the discs with moderate heavy braking..I've had thus for most if the...

    It doesn't help living the North East. I just did my brake service and found a warped disc. Hopefully this can be claimed under warranty.

    It's a multi layer foil equal to 250mm glass wool. I used it initially under our suspended floor when I had the underfloor pipes in air and the foil below that which stopped draughts and kept the heat in. Its just a leftover piece which covers the sides from the floor but doesn't cover the top...

    My 5 pylontechs sit in a server cabinet in an un heated garage wrapped on a thermal blanket. Apparently they like 25c but can operate close to zero and up to 50c. At the moment the lowest I've seen them operating at is about 10 c on a -7 night and up to 21c on an 18c day on charge. I plan on...

    Whats your favourite and least favourite supercharger and why?

    Having visited about 50% of the superchargers in the UK I thought I'd pose this question to see if there were any superchargers worth making a trip to visit? My favourite is Flint Mountain which I've only visited once, but will be back again. A really friendly welcome and great, reasonably...

    Android App Latest Update Bugs

    I just downloaded version 4.7.1-927 of the Tesla app on my android Samsung and now I can't connect to the car unless I'm alongside it ( presumably in Bluetooth range) it's frustrating trying to defrost the car or change the charge amperage. Anyone else noticing any change with this version?

    I found this YouTube video from a guy who's has had both Powerwall and Givenergy and a few others and found shortcomings with them. He explains it all in the video.
