    New DNO notification form for EV and Heat Pumps etc

    There is a new form on the horizon for EV charge points.

    G83 DNO Notification for DIY Install

    Hi, We're getting an extension with flat roof soon, and I can squeeze 3kw of PV onto it so I was going to DIY the install, considering no FIT meaning a proper installation isn't cost effective.

    If notification under Part 'P' is a legal requirement for a consumer unit change, then if a person changed the unit,issued a non scheme EIC and didn't notify Building control then would the installation be deemed illegal? I thought Part 'P' was to make sure that the installation was done to a...
