We ended up using Parrain Ets in Marsac
First class quick service and a very good price.
We have used them again since with the same positive results.

On the other hand......
Point P in Gueret really let us down by delivering the wrong stuff and a day late too.

hahaha thanks for that I only cut dead trees and cables as live ones have a habit of surprising you.........no wiring exists at the moment on the consumer side only the red cable.

Thanks Robert. What i get from the link is basically chop red cable and stick it on a relay A1A2.
Funny thing though I have never ever got a voltage on it. But am paying for HC too.

Red Cable at Meter

by dahean • Sun 20 Jan 2013 17:29

Hi I wonder if someone could clear up the red 2.5mm cable that loops from the back of our meter board. The guy who reads it said something about Heures Creuse. I'd like to know what to do with it please. I have a good background in electrics if that helps.
Cheers D

Great post, but my meter has 2 distinct sections marked hp and hc. I take it that this doesnt apply in this situation.

Make sure you research fully what is required of you in french law and talk to you insurance company too. I have first hand experience of a pretend builder an...
