I use 3,500 kWh per year for my house.
I'm buying a LEAF and will use 5,000 kWh to do 20,000 miles per year
If I use Octopus Go, I can charge the car for 5p/kWh and run the house for 14p/kWh, making a total cost of £740
If I get all my electricity from OVO at 17p/kWh, that's going to cost £1,445 per year, basically double the price of the Octopus tariff.
So how much will I make from selling electricity back to OVO on the V2G tariff? How much will I earn net per kWh and how many kWh should I expect to be selling?
I love the idea of V2G and want to take part in the trial, but I can't afford to do it if it's going to leave me out of pocket...

To introduce myself, I've recently joined OVO and will be involved with V2G going forwards - i'm looking forward to helping resolve some of the queries and join in the conversation!
Back to your question, my colleagues Ollie and Sean have a calculator that uses your current energy and driving profile as a basis for the annual figure using V2G with OVO.
They'll happily talk you through how OVO and V2G could work for you, plus any other questions you may have around the next steps - you can give them a ring on 0330 102 7423, or email on email@example.com
