I have a house battery and an EV and want to take advantage of the time of use or EV tariffs. The problem I have is getting a 3 phase smart meter installed. I have had failed attempts where meter installer turns up expecting it to be single phase. So can anyone on the forum answer these question:- 1. Do you have a 3 phase smart meter? 2. Which energy supplier fitted it? 3. Are you able to benefit from 'smart' tariffs? Thanks D
2 large rooms in a family house converted to studio/ensuite rooms. We would like to separate the utilities for these studios so can we get 2 more meters with separate accounts from the utility company DNO? or if multi accounts not possible in the same address then can we get 3-phase electricity with 3 separate meters so that we can use two phases for studios and one for the main house? Is there any differences between operators or availability in the area? Thanks.
5500066974-B customer drawing -001.pdf Hope this drawing works! Just about to clarify the position with the electric board about the position and length of the mains cable. The mains cable will begin at point C and will end up at point A. This distance is about 100 metres, at point B the mains cable would be downsized for one property. The reason for the 3 phase is to accommodate another house that is about to be built on the left hand side just before the cable turns 90 degrees to the right and we may in the future build another house on the left just after the bend where the trees are located. My question for @ProDave etc is what is the cheapest way to do it? Have two separate cables connected to the two new houses from the mains and pay for this at the same time to the electric board? Have one 3 phase cable which would provide power for three houses but there are no plans to build the third anytime soon and so is this making the 3 phase cable the more expensive option? The person building the other house wants to split the cost of all utility connections fairly i.e split the cost from point C to where the cables/pipes enter his land and I pay from that point to my house. The driveway will be a limestone gravel affair so no problem with digging it up at a later date or even running ducting when we do our connections now and then not as much disturbance if and when the third house is built. You can see there will be gates at some point if we do not run out of money and thought we could build a meter cupboard there and then run a supply to the house ourselves from there as that distance is about 30 metres. Hope I have included enough info. TIA
