The last two times EON read my generation meter, the guys managed to write the MPAN down wrong which put my account on hold until I sent in a photo of the device proving it was still connected and clocking up units (and yes, I did tell the last guy that his predecessor manage to balls it up - so he went and did the same thing).

Nice long off peak period. I have just switched to GO and am charging both EV's and cramming other white good use into the 4 hours. Also running the immersion over night as boiler on the blink again and its only 10 years old.

edit. I was with Scottish power who have also release an EV tariff with 4.7p for 5 hours per night. Despite several calls, they were not able to give me the peak rate so I didn't go with them.

I think they have to include VAT these days as dictated by Ofgem.

This is quite something cos it would mean me able to run my heatpump during the winter every weekend all day and some extra hours during the week. I have halved my gas useage running my heatpump with E7 and this would probably half it again.

Gas is transmitted through the UK using gas turbine powerred compressors, such a legacy plant exists in Leicestershire at Hinckley.

(Remember the dispute a few years ago between Russsia and Ukraine over the use (supposed theft) of "technical gas". This is the gas used to power the gas turbines to push the gas through the pipeline.)

LNG from Qatar should require more energy to liquify it than say the recent LNG shipments brought in from Yamal in Northern Russia. Northern Russia should be a good place to run a gas liquifaction plant because it is so cold. snow

GarethC As you are comparing the numbers for a gas boiler and electric heat pump, part powerred by gas. Have you considerred a gas absortion heat pump. The figures and performance of the Robur K18 are interesting. Mentioned on the foum before. BTW, I do not have one or have any connections with the company or UK importer.
If a smaller output device was availible and a bit cheaper, I would consider one for a heat only gas boiler replacement.

If it's not repairable,  I picked up a couple of 3300 from ebay for 250 a couple of months ago

No, he did not.

My meter reader just reads the meter.

He doesn't check the inverter, it's in the loft.
He doesn't comment on the cut out, it's had no seal before I moved in, lived here 20 years.

I think  he reads the meter and that's it

I hope I am not teach my collective grandparents on this board how to suck eggs, but EDF have recently launched a Tariff for EV owners. I heard about it at the Fully Charged Show at Silverstone last month(?).The cheap rate is 8.01p per KWH, 17.18p per KWH for peak and 28.8p per day standing charge. The killer benefit is the off peak runs from 21:30 to 7:30 during the week and 24 hours on Saturday and Sunday. You need to provide proof that you have an EV. They also did not charge me the 30 cancellation fee on the Economy 7 that I signed up for before the new tariff was announce - good on 'un!
