Re: 350kW!!!!

8 hours to feed ~15kWh... - that’s less than a kettle...

A 3kW kettle might take (umm...) two minutes to boil enough water to fill my teapot and make six mugs of tea. That's 0.1kWh (3kW * 1/30th of an hour), so 15kWh is enough to make something like 150 pots of tea which would fill 900 mugs.

I think that even the famed tea-swilling readers of El Reg would have trouble knocking back that amount of tea in eight hours!
