    Type C MCB needed for EV Charging?

    Hi all, I've not a lot of experience with EV but was called to a local job to investigate a loss of power to a 32amp 7.2KW EV charger. It turned out the 32A MCB (Type B) had failed, and would not even operate when completely removed from the board. I happened to have a matching Contactum B32...

    Domestic EV charging stations

    Obviously going to be a big thing in years to come but do you think it's worth going on an electric vehicle charging station install course? I'm pretty sure there is going to be some alterations in the upcoming 18th regs about this but my main concern is whether it's worth doing on a self...

    EV Charging Points - how much can you claim from the government?

    Hi All, We are looking into this and as 'petrolheads' (ironically) a chance to work with cars appeals but at a fundamental level we are trying to work out the economics. From our research we can claim back up to £500 from a government subsidy but the 'up to' part confuses us. How does this...

I already divert excess power to our immersion heater, using a home made, micro-controller based system that 'watches' the LED on the...
