But DC drops over distance.

We're not talking major loads, Chris. You would be considering less than 200W for most houses and not re- using the 1sqmm t&e we use for 230v AC lighting at present.

I'm talking about when DC lighting circuits get into the IEE regulations for domestic dwellings. It's coming, there's no doubt about that, but the 18th edition came in this year, and they generally have a 10 year lifespan.

I'm 56, I may not even bother getting qualified to the 19th when it's introduced, so I may not even get to install DC lighting circuits myself.

What we have is an antiquated old power transmission system where the few power stations that existed on the grid supplied and transmitted 132000 volts over long distances and dropped down to 33000 volts to sub stations and 240 volts to customers. The future is different, Local generated power by solar, wind etc supplying and storing low power customers needing very little power. In Maidstone a local incinerator was stopped from supplying cheap power to the locality, so it comes down to money IMHO.
