Re: SEA Electric Truck in Perth

Don't know if it's the same truck or not but I saw a SEA truck parked up outside of IKEA (after they were shut) next to some other delivery trucks, so it (or another one) might be part of the ikea delivery fleet That was back just before Christmas. The company, Kings, does work for IKEA so that may...

SEA Electric Truck in Perth

Riding to work I saw a delivery truck which was an SEA electric truck. The first I have seen in Perth. I sent a note asking about it and got a call from the corporate headquarters of the delivery company and whilst they knew about the trucks the person I spoke to didn't realise there was one in thei...

Re: Savic Motorcycles

I actually asked GOMA if they would like to display Voltron - Australia's fastest electric vehicle. But the exhibit had already been organised. Maybe if they travel around they'll let it in... My parents went last week and they said it was great! They only took pictures of the fossil bikes though (...

Re: Need2Charge app

This is a great idea. I saw a recent piece written by Bryce Gaton which mentioned the etiquette of charging beyond 80% at a public charger (bad etiquette).

Re: Horizon Power Charger info

I have been told that the system operator doesn't let scheduled generation drop below 700MW for some reason (does anyone know the reason?). We have been curtailing a lot of wind recently for sure.

Re: WA FIT reduced to 3c/kwh

Matt has a good point. I am not sure of the reasoning for the 5kW limit, whether technical or related to Synergy having the obligation to buy our spilled solar. I thought the now grandfathered FiT at flat 7.1c was effectively the value of generation, that is an energy price with embedded capacity pa...

Hi Joseph

Do you have an estimate of range on the freeway PERTH climate (for comparison with their NEDC estimate)?

Thanks

Re: Tesla PW2

I hear they are model 3 cells. 5kW continuous draw I don’t know. It is supposed to, peak 7.2 for 10 seconds. I try to do my energy intensive work during the day when solar inverter augments. I have it set as though peak charges are from 7am-9pm. This is true if I consider anything above my 13c Syner...

Re: Tesla PW2

I have had the Powerwall installed. Been fiddling with the settings. Works as advertised. I see the last software with notes update added Western Australian 3-Phase support (something I heard about through my discussions). Latest update seems to add "grid services". On set-up you were asked whether ...

Re: Tesla PW2

So the original grid tie inverter would have to be removed to be able to fit the Powerwall? Here in South Australia, as soon as you touch anything to do with a grid tie system, the whole thing has to be renegotiated and generally results in a much smaller feed in tariff. The 6kW solar and 15.5kWh b...

Re: Heat pump hot water systems

Thanks for letting us know -I think that is a good price from my past searches into this. I used to think that roof top passive solar was the way to go but I think that these days, for less fuss if you aren't doing a new build, heat pumps are the way to go. The insulation looks like a good job (ex t...

Re: Heat pump hot water systems

Cool post re heat pump. I have very old gas HWS which still keeps on going, but once it finally dies I will look out for a heat pump and cut off the gas connection. I am on the old smart power too - so would like a system that can run with the sunny shoulder and off peak times for boost if needed. F...

WTB: Vectrix (or functional equivilant)

I have a Vectrix. Easily does 100kmh. Does 80km easy in mixed riding. Great to ride one or two up. I have only 13000 on it so many many years on lion cells before I can justify the upgrade to leaf cells or better. So good.
