I plan to drive it for many years, so I have to do everything possible to preserve battery health. Our electricity price is 8,7 €C/kWh. 5€/charge at CHEdeMO station in Estonia? NoGo! Please, take a look at official pricelist of CHAdeMO charging in Estonia here. So, if you take Volume Package, you'll pay 0,2€/kWh. For Nissan Leaf it costs 3,5€ for 0-80% fast charging the most. If you charge at home, the price is only half of that.Here I see 1 kWh costs 0,11€ in Estonia. If you charge empty Leaf battery (24 kWh) to 100% SOC, you pay only 2,7€ at home. My car has 16kWh battery. For full charging (17,5 kWh; including losses - wall to wheel) I pay 1,52€ and I make easily 150km before first recharging. That's it, if you believe or not..
Our electricity price is near to 20€C/kWh (because of renewables tax, thank God we have only small share of renewables).
And 5 €/charge at CHEdeMO station in Estonia is real - see the Flex packet on the site you linked here. If you do not pay 10 to 30€ per month additionally, then 5€ is the exact price for one charging. Maybe if you take such ride every day, it will be cheaper to pay 30€/month for the Volume package to get lower rate (1.2 €/charging), but, hey, who can spend 12 hours per trip each day if by regular car it takes only 4 hours!
And please note, that the rate is per charging, not per kWh, so you can not calculate per kWh. If you choose the Volume package, you have to pay 30 € per month even if you do not use CHEdeMO stations at all!

Unfortunately wind is not there when there are frosty winter nights and power consumtion is at the top. Usually wind stops here in the evenings and starts blowing again in the morning. So it can not be reliable source for offpeak charging...

For me, EV is 100% winn-investment, for somebody living in for example Estonia, who is not ready to adjust driving habits, EV is not acceptable at all.
Congratulations to you!
But if you compare EV vs ICE, be fair and take into account also driving habits. If you drive slowly and with frozen windows, then you create lot of dangerous situations, when others have to pass you (like in the pointed video) etc. If you promote your achievments, do not forget to mention that also!
