Over 9000 KWH.

On serious note, I would just ask for a 200 amp service, or 400, whatever is standard in that area. That's probably what they're basically trying to figure out, if they should give you 100 or 200. It's better to have more then not enough.

All your power co is wanting to know is what your calculated load is in KVA or KW so they can size your feeder and a transformer for your service. You can take your calculated load in amps and multiply by the volts and you wil have your answer.

Most common size in UK typically either 63 or 100 amp service but the cutout fuse it will depending on what grid it came from.

I will post the UK POCO link little bit so you can get the idea.

France don't really have standarized size however 36 or 63 amp is most common depending on if you get single or three phase service.

Merci,Marc

thanks to all who replied I really appreciate your time... now hopefully I can get the ball rolling on this project I am setting up!!... I really really love this forum to be honest, and looking at some of my "previous posts" I honestly thought I put down as much detail as possible... I shall next time put down more information.

I hope this project is a sucess, my other one went well (re: shed made out of wood, but this one is going to be two separate brick sheds). I shall post pics if anyone is interested on the projects section.

gd luck with all your projects, and I am sorry if I ask simple, standard questions... but if I dont know, I will ask.

tc shabba, all the best

one thing I suspect from your syntax is you possibly are not a native Brit. Now, don't take that offensively as it is not intended to be. What I am getting at is your use of the language makes it difficult to understand what you are asking sometimes and along with that, some of your comments came across as being upset or angry. I suspect it is not meant that way but I see some of the replies were written with the possibility that is what you meant.



bottom line; there a lot of good guys here with a lot of knowledge. It may take a little to understand what you are trying to say in terms we understand. I am sure if you work with us, we all will work with you.
