So car has 12kwh battery (hybrid) and I would need 100% charge every day (if ever going back to the office) as now WFH. And no way 1 kwh would get me 5kms in this weather, maybe 2-3.
Could also put a max of 10kw into the house battery in that time (only have 5kw now, but hoping to do the 20kwh DIY) and technically could then charge car battery from house battery albeit a very inefficient transfer.
Not sure it is worth risking losing the 24hr tariff, forever apparently.
Annoyed as left bord gais recently to electric Ireland for their night boost bit since adding capacity to 10kw battery I don't write get it charged in their 2-4am 7c rate.
This bord gais deal is for three hours though and for 3c cheaper. Their day rate is 18.9c so 6.5c cheaper also. Tempted to take hit and change back to bord gais for this deal.
That 4.63 c rate for 3 hours could be a game changer.
Particularly if you could get ESBN to upgrade you to a 16 or 20kVA MIC...
The night rate is very expensive. 13.65?
Not as good as day night meter but breasts all 24 home meter plans and similar price to the 13.0 night rate I have with electric Ireland on their smart plan. I think most people plan with battery backup would be to charge sorting the the hour window to use for the rest of the day, obviously only if they have sufficient battery storage. For me also their day rate is a massive improvement over the extortionate ei 25c rate, although will be trying to avoid day rate as much as possible
Hmm 3 hours is just shy of 30 mins for a full charge on the car and means 15kwh into the batteries when I get the lifeopo4 setup going.
I'm with them right now on a 0.1715c 24 hour tariff, wonder if they want to do the swap.
Are there any nonsense rules in the small print like they have on the "free weekend" tariffs which is limited to 100kwh per month or something like that?
Doesn't appear to be a fair usage cap as just checked their terms here unless I missed it? https://assets-us-01.kc-usercontent.com/7dd6b71d-d672-0004-6a4d-7043e1d0db33/525e1130-cc15-4cf7-9d81-8b02812615f6/Smart%20EV%20-%20Oct21.pdf
I assume this new price plan is to do with the smart nighttime wholesale price dropping last month that somebody mentioned on here recently. Would hope to see some competition now on smart night plans. This new ev plan would allow me to completely charge my 10kwh battery now with three hours as could only get to 80% with electric Ireland's two hour cheap window
Let's hope this does not go the way of health insurance plans re options and clauses and restrictions
Peak times are the worst (at least in winter), 5pm - 7pm, literally when everyone cooks dinner 🤦♂️
They fat shame you when they put your total order number on the delivery 😂
Having a nightmare with their site on mobile. Are above tarrifs on electric only or dual dual? We have no gas connection, but are looking for best smart rates to move to. Also have an EV so the night time bonus looks good.
Standing charge a joke, exactly as expected
Good spot, nearly 1 euro standing charge per day. It's a rip off
Any update on you D/N, smart meter install?
Nope. And we are using so little at the moment I haven’t pursued it.
Some f** clowns out there like flogas:
wow. just wow.
Flogas: What the actual f...?
Leaving aside the day and peak (which are only mildly nuts), a night rate of €0.26cents is totally insane? Clearly I don't understand what/who they are aiming at here.
Must be aimed at the poor people who never switch and these days not doing that is crazy.
Peak nearly 40c? Lol.
Is that a scam?
Jeez a night rate that is six times my smart cheap night rate is ridiculous as for that peak rate it should be illegal!
New homeowners getting screwed.
I hope not too many people voluntary asked for a smart meter.
No contract with that rate....... thankfully
Actually.. you may be onto something with the current high wholesale rates. They might not want to onboard new customers right now to lose them money.
This is 100% heading down the health insurance nightmare.
thankfully I'm DIY battery route so I'll never engage in FIT and on my bills I'm one year fixed
What provider are you with that is offering fixed tariffs for a year? I thought all had added T&C's to allow them to increase prices mid contract.
