Optimising an All-electric House

One UK family’s experience of 5 ways that work beautifully together to save money and save carbon. Start with solar panels, link to storage like a Tesla battery, add thermal hot water when available, plus a heat pump to replace an old gas boiler, and charge an electric car, like a Renault Zoe, at the most economical rates. To bring it all together use a phone app to monitor and optimise all these into a holistic system. Of course, how to balance this level of investment against the likely return in savings is another whole question, different in different countries. But the all electric house must be the way forward in the light of our rapidly changing climate.
