So I had a charger installed at home a few weeks ago and the electrician had recently been on ‘the course’ where he learned that anyone that has a maximum electrical demand in excess of 60 amps has to effectively apply to the ENA for approval to use the charger so that the supply / capacity can be appropriately assessed. ENA - Electric Vehicles and Heat Pumps He went round and switched all the main appliances on in the house which reached around 50 amps and this was obviously without the car charging as it was yet to arrive. So he then suggested that as the car charging will nudge the output over 60 amps I would need to submit the form. Since then I have purchased an energy monitor and even with the car charging I cannot make this thing reach anywhere near the 60 amp mark. On average so far it’s maybe 30 amps. Now of course I could go round switching on two ovens two kettles two tumble dryers all the lights and the car but the reality is that is not normal usage. So I am hesitant to engage with UK power networks at this stage and have the usual painful dealings with them (big previous issue with relocating mains cables costing £10000+) when I can effectively manage my output to never reach this 60 amp limit. My concern is Power Networks will use the opportunity to make upgrades to the substation and try to charge me for it. (Private road with old infrastructure recently taken over by Power Networks). So is there anyone else who has made this application with any complications?
