Thanks for the help.
Several factors are taking place here. First I'm trying to reduce heating oil as much as possible. The other thing is my grid intertie power. I have been notified by my electric coop that ~ 2020 when my contract runs out they will switch me from the ~10 cents a kWh to what they pay for power to ~3.5 cents. At this point I want to utilize as much of the energy I make as I can, if that means turning on oil filled radiators than so be it. As of now my EV charges for free and I'm about 7 to 8 hundred dollars ahead on my electric bill but I have no intention of selling power back at 3.5 cents a kWh even if I have to open my house to an EV charging station!
