Powerwall payback period
I sat down yesterday to work out how the PW2 was doing from a financial point of view....

We have 3.4kW of PV and had our PW2 installed in mid Oct 2018. We are on the Green Energy Tide tariff at 5p overnight, 25p peak and 15p mid-rate. These costs haven't changed in the last year.

Electric dreams: The future for EVs | National Grid Group
The momentum behind the shift towards electric vehicles (EVs) is now clearer than ever. The UK Government’s announcement to stop all sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2040 is the latest in a string of high-profile policy decisions in recent months.

France, of course, has already announced its own ban on petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040. Car manufacturer Volvo will produce only electric or hybrid vehicles from 2019. Meanwhile, BMW has announced that an electric version of the Mini will be built in the UK, with production starting in 2019.

These are seismic decisions, when you consider that at present there are only around 100,000 electric vehicles in the UK, which compares with a total car fleet of 31 million. The full details of the government’s announcement are still being studied, but the message is unavoidable – EVs are on the rise and it’s now a question of ‘when’ not ‘if’ the transition from the internal combustion engine will happen.
