I have just been reading John Cantor's 'Heat pumps for the home' and in it he mentions That I will have to get permission from my DNO because of the starting surge.

Is this true?

thanks

See

http://www.energynetworks.info/storage/NTC%20for%20Connection%20Terms%20website_3Nov11.pdf

It is suitably vague and written in legalese, but the DNOs consider that they must be informed about any increase in fixed load, without them needing to specify by how much. In theory the consequences of ignoring this are severe. A lot depends in practice on your location and the size of the transformer you are fed from, and the number of people served by that transformer.

There are apparently on-line forms available to fill in.
