Consumer Unit

    Looking to do a self install but problem is access to indoor consumer unit. The consumer unit is located inside behind a small ceiling bulkhead. The unit is all visible but difficult to work on. I have a 20 amp 6mm square cable coming from the garage it is used for charging a robomower and lights so not much current draw. I plan on installing a 6 kw ground mount not looking for grant as I am being quoted €1850 for a ground mount by a SEAI reg installer. I have a wall where I can install the panels using Unistrut and buy the kit and it is working out a lot cheaper. Don't mind doing the installation myself.

    Hopefully I can get a RECi reg eletrican to connect the invertor and sign off on the FIT paper work for Electric Ireland.

    Is it possible to locate all the kit in the garage and use the existing cable.?

    If it is not possible to use the existing cable can a sub consumer unit be fitted outside close to the meter cabinet.

    Located in Wexford

    An info or photos of work required in the consumer unit would be greatly appreciated
