Ok guys another post on some advice if going electric, to speed things up you need to find out who your network is run buy (not your energy supplier), this can be done by entering your postcode here https://www.energynetworks.org/operating-the-networks/whos-my-network-operator scroll down to the map and click on the tab ELECTRICTY DISTROBUTION SUPPLIERS, then either enter your post code or look at location. once you have this ring them up and tell them you will be ordering a electric or phev but have read some horror stories on loops fuses and such.
They should provide you with a email to contact regarding ev stuff, from here send a email over with a photo of your meter box, within a week you will be contacted back with a few questions. go through them (normally main one is what fuse size ect which sometimes is worn away from sticker in meter, if it is worn dont worry just tell them).
The reason you should do this is because this will allow the network to mark your properties details down and what will be needed.
Then when you order a car that needs a charger or if your going through an installer with a phev grant for install. when the installer looks up your address they dont have to wait for approval, you property is pre approved for a install, network knows what to do already as its noted on your file.
Doing this can change a install date from 3 months to one week after application as they are already set up.
