We’re considering a switch to the MG5 EV. No, it’s not as attractive or featureful as the Leaf but we’ve outgrown it in terms of interior/boot space and the MG is the only electric estate going - with greater range and of course cheaper.
But that last statement has got me wondering: Yes, it’s cheaper to buy/make payments on, but it doesn’t support V2G so we’d be losing out on that. Hence, what I’d really like to figure out is how much we’re actually saving through the V2G scheme. Obviously right now we’re using a lot more power than we otherwise would from the constant overnight charging, and with the V2G feed-in being delayed by a month it’s not totally straightforward to figure it out from our statements.
So, is there any way I can remove the feed-in *and* the additional power draw from the extra charging on our statements to figure out our actual savings/difference from not having V2G? Can OVO do it for me on request?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts on the matter!

I am lucky enough to be on the trial and a long range leaf this is yielding me approximately £90 per month on the (trial enhanced) rates for payback, while coronavirus is keeping my car firmly at home. If i took a non enhanced rate (say half) and normal use then i would still be looking at probably £250 a year ish.
