Fair usage9.1 For each calendar month after the Start Date, the number of kWhs you export to the grid from your car must be less than or equal to the number of kWhs you import from the grid through your Charger.
9.2 If you do not comply with clause 9.1, we’ll let you know. We’ll give you 30 days to ensure that the number of kWh exported or less than or equal to those imported. If you do not rectify this within 30 days, we may remove you from the Trial.
9.3 If this occurs on more than one occasion during the Trial Period, we may remove you from the Trial immediately and remove the Charger. You may be charged for the removal of the Charger in accordance with clause 13.3.
In our case we have a 4kW solar installation which produces about 3800kWh/year, we don't use very much electricity, last year we only used 3700kWh, and most of that is used at night on economy 7 charging our Nissan Leaf so very little so the Solar power gets used. Because of this I'm fairly certain in the summer months we could break the fair usage policy.
I realise this policy was probably written to stop you filling the battery up at a free charger and then selling it back to OVO but can you just confirm we wouldn't removed from the trial if for example we went away for 2 months and left the car plugged in so it could charge from the solar and export more back to the grid than it took from the grid.

I've spoken to the lovely team in Kaluza and they have cleared this up,
OK, the only time we would consider there to be a breach of the fair usage policy is if there is export only from the car to the grid. As long as we can see import from the grid to the car it's all good.
Hope this helps!
