WHAT IS A PRIORITY DEVICE AND WHY MIGHT I NEED ONE?
A priority device may be needed when you want to install a 32A charger and already have a high load in your home, for example; electric showers. Installing a priority device prevents your electrical system from being overloaded at any one time.
If your EV is charging, and the shower turns on, the EV halts charging until the shower switches off.
If you have an electric pump shower heated via gas boiler, you are unlikely to need a priority device.
Plug-in EVs are the future
There is no doubt that plug-in electric vehicles are the future of motoring in Europe. By starting the process of installing an EV charge point today, you will be able to enjoy faster, safer charging now.
