The EV Experience and Solar – Add some batteries and a charger

Just launched a new page The EV Experience and Solar detailing my route to an Electric Vehicle, EV. We then have considerations of solar power, chargers, batteries and home wind. I’ll be updating the journey and experiences as we go along.

Tesla Blue EV Experience

The one above is not my car, wrong wheels. Nor is the one below that I photographed. It was the one that I tried to collect but mine is the same type and colour.

Tesla EV Experience

We purchased a Tesla Model Y All Wheel Drive Long Range. Not the Performance Model. The process has already not been smooth due to Tesla itself and Brent Cross Pick Up location in particular. I won’t regurgitate the pain here, please see the page.

I’ll be copying some elements to the Goodreads thread What Do You Know about Electric Vehicles

EV Experience Other Bits

I’ll also be adding details on our existing Solar system of 14 panels generating 3.6kw/h on a good day. We’re adding the Zappi charger we have chosen and our choice of battery if we decide to get one. Still trying to decide on the battery but compatibility and working applications with Solar delivery are critical. Also looking at energy suppliers who fit the combinations with variable charging. Supercharging at Tesla already done. Much cheaper than petrol!

In The World of Fives, Human Beings have expanded into the stars, thanks to the benefits of 7D transportation. Life and planets are plentiful, intelligent life is not. A near Utopian existence for humans is supported by the dedication to various services. The Human Federation policy is one of non-intervention. Observe only, that is the mission of The Interplanetary Geographic Service.

Cathy is an Observer in The Interplanetary Geographic Service. She is observing the planet Fivur, as an exceptionally rare convergence of moons and orbits creates massive tidal shifts on the planet’s surface.  Five years into her initial six year mission, with only Ix her Artificial Intelligence system for company, she watches the planet.

Carlo, a Fivurian must overcome the impact of the tides on the planet’s power system, whilst keeping his love, Sello, safe.  Meanwhile, Cathy tries to persuade her superiors to intervene, and save the lives of the planets humanoid population.  If she can save them, they will need a new home, but Earth’s factions have different ideas.  Meanwhile, another intelligent species on the planet the Sharok wait to feast on any human or Fivurian who ends up in the water.

The book is also available from Amazon in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada and selected other Amazon sites
