What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?

OVO Energy standard tariff – considering a night-time one but that will result in a higher day-time unit rate. May not bother though as my mileage is so low. Yes, I would recommend OVO, they’re as good as anyone else from what I’ve read.

What public charging networks would you recommend to others and why?

IONITY – ease of use and availability are my main reasons.
