  3. 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
  4. Hi, I'm thinking forward to what type of Electrical connection to apply for down the road if my self build commences. The Electrical Board in Ireland offer 12kVA for Standard Domestic and 16kVA for larger Domestic houses or ones with Heat Pumps. The reason I'm thinking of a larger supply like Three Phase is primarily for future proofing should I get an Electric Car. I would also get Night Rate Electricity so the price of charging overnight is less. if I could afford it a battery like a Tesla Powerwall 2/3 so I can offset the dearer daytime electricity would be ideal. Anyway, with three phase I could get 20kVA or 29kVA & fast charging for newer cars with their increasingly larger capacity batteries. My work travels all over the place, it's not a fixed point to point. Knowing I can fully charge at home overnight and top up in transit offsets the risk the destination has no charging facility. So, what do people have in their homes currently and is three phase the way to go or overkill? There's not that much extra cost for a new connection I've found but the site is in an existing housing estate so it may not be possible to supply the necessary current without a lot of digging (worst case)....I'd still like to know if it would be worth the trouble. There's no change to standard domestic appliances I'd assume, just a different meter/fuseboard? I would get something like a pod-point S22 capable of using the additional capacity. I'd still like to get some solar PV going but have limited roof / garden space in the design.... Anyway, any thoughts on Three Phase for EV Charging or other benefits of having it welcome.....Thanks!
