Tesla Moves Into U.K. Homes With New Solar Power Tariff

October 28, 2020 frankbatterino 0 Comments

Tesla Inc. is offering an electricity tariff that combines solar panels and a battery, turning British households into virtual power plants.

Tesla requires customers to own a Tesla electric vehicle and a home charger to get the cheaper Tesla Energy Plan.

The tariff offers a 75% saving compared to other providers, the company said, and Tesla is working with the UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

Renewable power supplier Octopus Energy Ltd. has teamed up with Tesla. The deal means homes can generate, store and return solar energy to the grid during peak times.

Tesla Energy Plan is an energy tariff specifically designed for households with solar and Powerwall installed, offering a tariff based on electricity imports and exports. The tariff is calculated by the software and automatically based on the amount of solar power available in the household system at any time of day or night.

Britain already has several electric vehicle tariffs that allow electricity to flow into the grid, but this is the first country to include batteries and solar panels as an additional source of electricity. The main advantage of the service is that it is free for households with solar and Powerwall systems, not only for households with electric vehicles.
