Tesla Powerwall

implementation is a huge question because ausgrid, endevour, ergon everyone who owns the poles and wires ban this sort of system. they only allow UPS style battery connections.

ausgrid did trial hybrid systems but I don't think it's approved of outside of the trial.

http://www.fusionps.com.au/ told me there where the distributors. they had "show" girls at the energy storage conf. which sorta put me of them, skirts don't make me think a product is good. there where about 3-4 guys all selling these batteries there. in one corner of the expo room it was a bit odd.

Best aftermarket EVSE for an Outlander PHEV

so for a unit that has a plug on both ends Holden volt spares have one for under $500. hard to go past this unit so much so I haven't even looked at selling anything similar until Holden stop selling these.

why the whole point of J1772 is that we can vary the amperage to suit the installation and even have dynamic limitation to avoid peak power times.
