Lol, noticed this also. Will be charging between 11am and 4pm tomorrow :). I only have a 3 pin plug :(

Will also wash clothes, do the dishwasher, mow the lawn, charge the laptops and cook dinner

Damn, I need to get myself those Powerwalls...

My electricity bill for last 30 days. The irony is yesterday at 5pm the PW was at 100%, the car at 90%, and even the PV hot water heater was 'off' because the water was hot and I ended up exporting 4kWh to the grid!! So even if I wanted to use electricity is would have been hard.

This current spell of wind+sun really is doing wonder to electric generation in the UK, all the worries about EVs causing the grid to collapse really does seem like storm in tea cup.

Well, you can’t read much into the way things are currently. Lots of EVs are sat unused. My car has 137 miles on the clock and under the normal run of things it would have closer to 1500.

Equally lots of businesses are not operating, using electricity on an industrial scale.

Hopefully though this virus will accelerate the whole WFH strategy for most office based firms, so car usage (and electricity usage) will drop. That would make V2G more viable too, as EVs would be sat idle at home rather than in an office car park.

If the hourly auction prices are anything to go by (they usually are...) it'll be just as cheap tomorrow too.
