There's no trouble with OE (the charger installer) nor Octopus (the smart meter installer). The trouble is with Western Power, who control the distribution network in half (?) the country. The main fuse on our 1960s house has jammed in its holder - excessive bitumen I am told - and can't be replaced by the usual meter installers. Western Power are the only ones allowed to do this and there are no alternatives, I am told. Only when they are done can the rest of the chain start. And WP have shut down all its installers nationwide, because of the virus, with no options to check the health of the household.Bodgers":2a1lrp4s said:McNally EV that installed my charger were at our house yesterday, they are still working. That was through Podpoint.MusicMan":2a1lrp4s said:Just heard that the OLEV brant for installing a home charger is being cut (again) by £150, and I can't get the higher one despite it being on order as this is in effect from April 1, and key installers aren't working because of the virus. Government's left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing, again. Oh well.
The day before arrival they ring you and ask you to confirm if you are anyone in the house has symptoms or a diagnosis.
I have to respect the decision. And as i said, the present charge in the car will probably last me all 12 weeks!
