    Re: CoC. Engineer vs Electrician

    Maybe so, I don't know enough about these installations to comment on what is practical. This is however a CoCT requirement. Off-grid installations don't require an electrical engineer sign-off.

    Re: CoC. Engineer vs Electrician

    In Cape Town, if you install a grid-tied system, you need an electrical engineer to sign off on the installation. If this is not a requirements elsewhere, it could be very soon.

    True. Would the tow ball weight have a leverage effect though? I.e. 100 kg on the tow ball equates to 200kg on the concentration point for example.
