What the heck is going on with the main switch(es)...
Glad it’s not just me dusty....what is that? Is there a small section of bus bar connected to that odd mcb in the end?

That is truly atrocious, especially in a brand new installation with new cables,there's no excuse and it takes a special talent to make it look that rough. It appears that the single MCB on the far right fed in a weird way with piddly cable hasn't got anything in it yet - I wonder what the intention was there ?

An extreme way of getting a non RCD way that always has power. Future supply to life support machine?!!!!

the sad thing is, it looks like parts of it they have made a bit of an effort.

the cpc's are getting close to being neat and they have gone to the effort of trying to form
most of the lives where they meet the breakers.

But all in all I think we can all agree that it is a dogs dinner of a job.

It has all the hallmarks,of a job where one person has chose or obtained the kit,and then somebody else,has come along and just run with it....i would wager,it is not one persons sole carry-on :)

Looks to me like for some reason they have decided they need a non rcd spare way but what a carry on. Presumably they realised they were making a complete hash of it and immediately left the trade in search of a more suitable job.

Perhaps it saves on having an external 2 pole isolator for the mains side of the inverter!

Looks a bit rough and no bonds either ?

Surely you would of just put the Solar on the high integrity side on a Rcbo as would we with the EV point
