Hi e-richard

You make a very good point.

And guessing like wifi in the early days - figuring out what kind of router to get, how much download v upload speed etc is the norm - getting a suitable charging point for cars will throw up the same issues re a learning curve.

I've just googled things to consider when getting a charging point and still clueless! How much power trips the mains system? And what if 3 cars want to charge at the same time?

We're in Spain so electricity is supplied in different ways - depending on the maximum power you think the property might need at any one time. And recently new government tariffs depending on the time of day, depending on how you contract your electricity.

We recently had our first guest with a hybrid hire car and no idea if they charged it from an electrical socket through a bedroom window.

We 100% agree is the way forward just need to try to understand it all!

Sunbeam do not forget the price of electricity in Spain is the highest in all of Europe. June was 40% higher than last year. Prices will be increasing and the IVA reduction has wiped out any cost reduction.

Hi CSE - i think that depends on how you choose to pay for electricity.

We pay a fixed price of about 14 cent per kw - rather than the variable rate that depends on general demand. So our bills are fairly predictable. We are also on the Endesa "Happy Hours" tarif and get our 50 most expensive hours "free".

Most of the cost of our bill can actually be the fixed price "potencia" specially during covid times when the house has been empty. But with the new system we need to investigate as we think we can vary our contracted potencia.
