Heures Creuses off New Meter
We just upgraded from 6KW to 9KW with the heures creuses option for cheaper off-peak electricity.
Unfortunately our French is not as good as it should be yet (we haven't been here long!!!) and, when the monsieur from EDF had finished installing the new meter, he was at pains to point out a connection on the box with a 2A fuse by it, which he seemed to be saying was where the heures creuses electricity came out of. He said (I think!!) that HC would not be present on the regular prises (sockets) in the house.
Did I misunderstand him, or to take advantage of HC do you need to wire an appliance back to the main box?? If so, 2A sounds a bit underpowered... we were hoping to use storage heaters in the future...
Can any of you kind folk shed some light on this, please??
