Ask your supplier to fit a smart meter, then ask the Dino to also install the isolator and 100A fuse At the same time.Have my zappi installed, set to 80A grid limit and the rest of the house has fairly low electric usage. No electric shower, no electric hob, no electric water heating (all gas).
Seems to me like 80A is fine - but I contacted the DNO just to check in case it was a free upgrade. most of that cost is labour, quoting £166 for three hours (plus VAT)
My initial thinking is to just leave it as-is.
I have an older smart meter already from scottish power - elster AS300P which in theory is updatable. I assume that they updated to 80A at the time as the tails etc all look updated. No isolator though. I’m switching to octopus on Tuesday so will get a request in asap for either hooking up to my current meter or getting a new one installed.Ask your supplier to fit a smart meter, then ask the Dino to also install the isolator and 100A fuse At the same time.
then switch to octopus !
No prob. Awareness is key here, hence me posting publically.
My team train quality supervisors and installers for multiple install companies and develop hardware and software solutions for multiple manufacturers so we understand this area pretty well.
Just FYI the sense clamp is for load curtailment which is basically a feature to derate the charger when the property is under high load to protect your DNO fuse. It's not anything to do with PEN fault protection.
Its up to you what you do with the info I've shared but in my view, with what I can see, its not compliant.

That link quotes indent iv which only covers single phase properties.
According to this Pod Points are compliant with the 2020 amendment and meet the PEN requirement you mentioned. They don't require an earth rod.
