I get a letter nearly every month from a local company. It started with efficiency and how their system would improve the efficiency. Now they have moved onto scare mongering by indicating that my system could be unsafe for a whole host of reasons -most of which could have been evident from year one let alone 8 years down the track!

Very true. All bets are off if Brexit goes ahead. On a lot of things.

Yes this is the new Nemolink which is scheduled to be fully commissioned by end of January 2019, although as alluded to I expect the Belgians will be desperate to see it operating before then given their current (lack of) power crisis - I expect we will be exporting on that HVDC for a while...

But, that does depend on us having an agreement with the EU energy market, so what happens after March is a big unknown.

Hi Mudman
The former power station was connected at 132kV, suitable for the station output and location . It also served the very first DC link between England and France. (long gone).
The existing 132 does not belong to National Grid but to Uk power networks. It is effectively "embedded"

The new 400kV link to Richborough connects to the existing substation near Canterbury.

We use a 'normal' 2 channel programmer so have separate hot water and heating schedules.  Either one can be called up independently of the other so if we need a bit more hot water then I can just have hot water and equally the heating can be turned on without it trying to heat up the hot water. 

With the wood burner fired up and all controls off, it tops up the hot water and will also fire up the heating circuit if the water in the wood burner gets too hot.  If you then switch the heating on and the wood burner is above it's threshold temperature but not hot enough to run the heating on it's own then the hot water from the wood burner is directed to the oil boiler to heated a little more before it goes off to the heating circuit thus using less oil but still warming the house up quickly.

It can also be changed with a couple of switches on the control box to run just solid fuel or fully automatically.

If you give them a call, they'll be more than happy to answer any questions and point you in the right direction.

Philip R, That makes more sense = i'd originally assumed that they had used a former power station site due to the grid connection but the 400kv grid replacement showed that could not have been the main reason.
