      I will be watching it through my fingers and won’t relax until Spain is 3-0 up.

                  Just to finish off this particular subject I received this from Sunsynk to a question I raised about protecting the grid when running the house from an EV during a grid outage “You would need to set up an Earth Neutral Bond and set the inverter to work in island mode” I was under the impression Island mode worked automatically but apparently not.

                    After reading GlosGuys post i will be removing it from my list. The additional costs for bits and bobs we would want take the cost over what i would be willing to pay.

                        Kezo Fortunately, the Sunsynk 8.8kwh hybrid inverter has “Island mode” built-in with no set-up required is this what the automatic change over switch would do?

                            Paul i am no electrician and rely heavily on guys on the Firum like Kezo to throw cold water on my electrical dreams but I’m pretty sure it could be made to work.

                            The “Generator Port” on the hybrid inverter is used mostly in “off-grid” locations where a petrol generator is used when solar/wind and battery storage are low. In the situation i am referring the charging cable would come straight from the car to the “generator port”. There are cables on the market just now that will plug into a V2L BEV on the car side and have a generater socket on the other that plugs directly into the inverter. With regards V2G chargers i agree there are only a couple on the market and they are expensive but in the future they will be the only chargers that people will buy. It might take a government grant to encourage people to go this route but this would eventually reduce the cost of the unit and IMO make V2G chargers the only one worth having.

                              Things are changing very quickly with electricity supply innovations. Octopus Energy has really shaken the marketplace with various tariffs for virtually every solar, battery storage, ASHP and BEV set-up. I have been investigating using a V2L-enabled car to run the house, or at least add additional electricity to supplement my existing generation. I intend to install a hybrid solar inverter with a “generator” port and connect the car directly to the port using a charger cable. I received this reply from Sunsynk who supply inverters with this capability.

                                As an aside i got an estimated quote of £1800 to install a three-phase supply to my home.

                                    Paul as kezo says i have a large house and I’m based between Glasgow and Edinburgh so have a high gas bill at the moment hence the anticipated move to an ASHP.

                                    My gas usage last year was 16,500 kWh f or heating and hot water. I plan to keep my combi boiler for hot water and as a safety net in case the ASHP turns out to be a bad move.

                                    There are a couple of options to reduce the pump size but I’m not sure it would make a huge difference. I have 200mm of loft insulation that i could easily increase. I have sprayed insulation to my entire downstairs so that’s fine. My windows are all double-glazed but very old. The two main living space windiws are both 2.4m x 1.8m so i could maybe reduce some heat lose by changing the glass units to Argon-filled. I have a mate who owns a glass company so this could be an option.

                                    The house has cavity wall insulation on the existing section and timber frame with 75 mm thick insulation on the extension.

                                    So there’s a couple of things i could do and might yet do but I’d probably be tinkering around the edges.

                                    What size of ASHP do you have Paul and what has been your experience with it?

                                      Ionic everyone in this situation should ask for a three phase instal. We are heading for all-electric homes, BEVs, air source heat pumps all electric cookers so three phase supply will make this much easier, it also allows 22kwh charging which is ideal 👍

                                          @Joe i would get the cost of any additional work as it may be a small amount and then look at what you are saving. Motability are paying the lions share of every charger install and there is no guarantee that this will last indefinitely. The cost of installation varies but let’s just say £1,000. Assuming we all move over to electric cars eventually, that’s a cost you don’t need to pay.

                                          If you then look at the various charging tariffs available when charging at home you will see the cost of running an electric vehicle is so much lower than running an ICE car.

                                          So if you need to pay a small amount of money to get a home charger installed i think it is worth it and the money you save in the first year will probably cover any additional installation costs.

                                            Paul, you are correct i have neither battery storage nor an air source heat pump. So i will gladly accept your first-hand knowledge in this instance.

                                            Your numbers however are frightening and giving me pause for thought as I am in the process of installing a 9kw air source heat pump, 45kwh battery storage and another 5/6 kwh solar array together with my existing 3.6kwh solar array.
