I posted this in the general forum, but worth adding to the UK forum: I was just reading this report on when the UK (yes, cloudy, wet and cold UK) could move to unsubsidised solar. Some valid points and a mention of Tesla getting battery storage costs down. Utility behaviour may also drive people to offgrid solutions (bumping up grid connection fees before any usage). I think they miss discussing the growing use of EVs and people with Solar PV charging during the day and ideas like Leaf to Home taking off, in relation to increasing utilisation of generation rather than returning to the grid. http://www.thema1.de/wp-content/uplo...d_UK_Solar.pdf I only have a small 3.5kW solar install, but looking at doubling that now that I will have 2 EVs in the household.
