Show Notes

In this episode of the Simply Clever podcast, we’ll be offering some advice to people who have decided to switch to electromobility.

Imagine the situation – you have two cars at home, and you’re thinking about trading one in to get an EV, maybe one with a small battery that’s ideal for towns and cities.

I was in that situation not so long ago and had questions like:is it ok if I just use a standard plug socket to charge the EV? How is charging going to affect my bills? And should I start thinking about solar panels? Especially after energy priceswent through the roof at the end of the year. 

 I decided to ask somebody with lots of experience in electromobility, home charging, and solar energy. Today’s guest is EV enthusiast and YouTuber popularizing electromobility and photovoltaics, Jan Staněk, aka ElectroDad. Jan invited us to his house close to Brno and showed us what it’s like to live with two e-cars in the garage.
