Answers on moving house, getting connected or using your electricity and gas meters

Is a charger for n EV allowed as a Controlled Load (22kW 3 phase)).

Switched-on

Just moving towards the purchase of an Electric vehicle (EV) and I am approaching electricians to install a charger.  Am I still allowed to connect a controlled load (1).  Is a car changer considered an appriate load for a controlled load.  (I would only need 6 hours charging, so CL1 from midnight to 7am (or 23:00 to 6:00) would be enough to fully charge the vehicle battery twice,

 

Thanks,

Your electrician should be able to answer this question.

However, if you currently have a CL in use, you may be required to have a meter with two CL circuits in it.

Again your electrician should be able to supply this information.
