Clients Requirement –
Our client wanted a robust twin outlet unit capable of charging their car in a few hours. They wanted this to be located at the front of the property, supplied from a local distribution board and asked that we ran the cable through a flower bed to the charger.
We recommended the Rolec Securicharge model based on the robustness of the unit and the 3phase superfast charging capability.
Particular Challenges –
As this unit exceeded the 13.8kVa maximum demand set by the energy networks association for residential properties, we contacted the local DNO (Distribution Network Operator) to apply for the proposed EV charger.
A part of the application asks for the maximum demand of the property to be stated. As this particular property has a large electrical installation we discussed and agreed the use of monitoring equipment to determine this reading. We used the Acksen EC-7VAR-RS Electrocorder. This allowed us to submit an accurate value for the application to the DNO. The information recorded also provided our client with extremely helpful data that they could use to investigate how the use of power at the property could be more sustainable.
