you can buy posts for mounting them on, although obviously then they'd need fixed to the ground. Is wiring routing an issue for being listed ?
I guess the charger could be concealed within some sort of period looking enclosure ?
Or inside and chuck the cable out the window lol
I think you just need to get access to the cable itself, largely they seem to be operated via apps now
That guy on youtube Artisan electrics covers a lot of different types and installs. Given the push for electric it'd be a **** move for them not to allow fitment
I presume each flat has their own independent electric supply ? The charger would need to come from there obviously.
Any recommendations for installer in East Antrim area and/or what charger to go for? Considering a Model 3 at the moment.
No solar so just a basic charger I think I would need? Ideally something that's not 8+ weeks lead time as lead time for car is quite short.
Word of warning for anyone who has an EV charging point switch / surge protector installed in their meter box:
I have recently switched from Budget Energy to Power NI to avail of their Nightshift tariff.
An engineer came out today from NIE to change the meter from the standard one to the Economy 7 meter and he refused to fit it as the switch / surger protector was installed in the meter box.
I called Design Electrical (Duncrue) who installed the point to ask what the craic was and apparently this is becoming a common problem as NIE are attempting to claim territory in the meter enclosure. I listened to what they had to say and asked when they could come out to rectify the problem. They said that since there was no such regulation in place when the charging point was installed it's not their problem but they could come out and install a separate enclosure at my cost.
Ready for knocking someone out.
There was an option of having the EO mini installed with or without an SPD so I assume this will only apply to those who have an SPD fitted.When you say surge protector in the meter box? What do you mean? You have the main NIE fuse and then the meter. After that its none of NIE business as the consumer unit or anything after the meter doesnt concern them.
The podpoint charger uses a simple clip on clamp on the incoming live tail between the main fuse and the meter which would avoid any issues.
Apparently it's becoming a widespread issue.I still can’t see why that’s any of NIE’s business after the tails come out of the meter though?
