Tell us about your home charging routine

Cover up to 100 miles a week. Car is always plugged in when at home, as recommended by Tesla.


If you were buying a new charging unit now, what would you buy and why?

I have no reason to need anything better than I have. Car manages all charging.


Tell us about your electricity provider and tariff. Would you recommend them?

I am with EDF GoElectric – I take advantage of the lower daily rate rather than cheap overnight rate and a higher daily rate. This is more cost effective for me. I also have solar panels so charging is cheaper during the day.
