Heyyall.
Just moved to the UK along with me MS. seems like Octopus go would be the best deal around for home charging- will need a referral (the 2nd PM will get it)... and whats the deal with charging everyone gets at home - charging speed for the 4 hours we get at 5p/kWh? Not sure if I get 3 Phase 32A like my mate in Hong Kong does but lets assume I wont get that.....

Assuming I need to commute some 50 miles a day? (If I dont I guess I can easily fit in grocery shopping and a weekend trip to top up the battery pack over the 5-6 nights a week + supermarket charging)

On its way!

The four-hour charging window at 5p a unit is enough to add about 120miles each night.

Phase 3 is unlikely in the UK but not unheard of.

On Go, yes 4 hours at 5p. Not so sure what that equates to in kWh on the S though. It's about 40% charge on a long range Model 3 if you're able to compare with that.

Have you seen/considered the Agile tariff?

Most home chargers will be ~7kw (single phase 32A), so 28kWh over the four hour Go window. 3 phase is very unlikey for residential in the UK. 50 miles will be ~15kWh, so you should be fine!

PS, hope I was 2nd...
