Looked into it a bit more - the EV is Vapourware...
Energy Australia wrote: Energy Australia aims to secure a pre”release plug”in Electric Vehicle (EV) from one of the
major manufacturers currently running international pilots. If this is achieved, then the
possible uses are to:
    • measure charging patterns with typical family use of the vehicle;
    • test the EV as another form of useful energy storage to supply electricity to the
       grid during peak periods and recharge during low use periods; and
    • trial and evaluate potential metering options for PHEV’s to charge outside the
       home at third party locations, and still be billed to their account.

Alternatively the car could simply demonstrate self sufficiency by charging up at night
from the battery stored energy that was generated by the PV system during the day.
