Not sure if you have one, but a PHEV would be a good way to utilize excess electricity. I have a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, charging at home on a slow (on purpose) 200V/6A charger that can be controlled with a Wifi SmartSocket - switches on whenever I have surplus PV energy. Now I go refuel only once every couple of months, or when I go on a road trip. Of course a full on EV might be better, except during those winter months you mentioned.
