Grid connection

      I have a garden office that is connected to the grid via an armoured cable from the house. I’m thinking of putting some panels on the roof as its south facing.
      Can I connect to the electricity supply in the office, or do I have to go back to the meter in the house ?

      Hi

      Yes your correct, you’d have to connect to mains board, rather than the spur connecting to your office.

      Ground-mounted panels away from the main property are around, so your set-up type may not be a disadvantage.

      Thanks Stuart,

      The office feed is direct from the main consumer unit, not a spur off a ring main.
      It’s a single circuit with its own breaker.
      There is a small consumer unit inside the office to distribute to a power circuit and a lighting circuit.
      Does this change anything ?

      No worries.

      Sounds more viable now, but would get a local installer to confirm.

      Good luck.
