Hi,

I'm getting my Consumer Unit Refreshed before I get my charger install (FYI the charger will have 6mA DC protection built in).

The Charger manufacturer suggests putting a submain in for it to keep the EV point away from the main house fuse board to alleviate any potential nuisance tripping. However working off the main consumer unit is perfectly acceptable.

The Electrician replacing the Consumer Unit says the latest ones provide much better fault isolation, he can put a submain in (and has quoted for it as an option), but it's not really needed in his opinion.

From the sound of it I should be okay just with the single setup and the new Consumer Unit?

Any thoughts or advice?

I don't have PV but might consider it in the future.
