So we now have a new problem.

The solar Zappi charger is working brilliantly, managing to add around 20 kWh every day.

But we also have access to free 11 kW charging at most places when we go out. The main motivation is not having to pay for parking if we use these.

But the problem is we don’t need to public charger very much. Don’t want to just block a charger either.

So what do you call it when you worry about not having a low enough SOC to bother charging?

Smugness?
Energy Independence?

Maybe just open your charger up as a public charger?

No, but driving to Spain for a charge I have to pay for and you can't even guarantee there won't be a PHEV stuck on it when I arrive? Well, I'd rather go to a CPS rapid in Inveraray and take my chances.
Look, as it’s you. It’s free.

I’ll make sure there are no PHEVs on it when you come by.

Could you call yourself de-ranged?
