Re: need helpabout a supply needing splitting for 2 flats???

Hi Luke
First i would find out from customer if keymeters are required etc if so you may be better off getting DNO to install these to save hassle and make your job easier also is the cutout/meter etc in a communal area ? if not this will also need addressing.
Hope this helps.

think he has electric meters installed but would you say its not worth doing and may be saying for him to go to distibutor for install of tails?looked on screwfix for blocks and they have a 6 way connector block which would be right for splitting but think id rather stick to consumer side!!!!????

If the installation has a meter that is supply authority equipment then the meters that you are wiring to additional to this meter are no different to any other means of protection/safety and the regs governing Bs 7671 which is applicaable after the supply equipment and are the regs to follow
If you split the tails and serve 2 boards then the 3 meter general rule for the supply tails protection still applies and you will have to supply the install via 1 or possibly two KMFs
You are still working on the load side side of he distributors supply and the same rules apply
