Hi, I have installed my solis hybrid inverter, connected to the batteries, fed the mains cable to the consumer unit, I will be getting a sparky to wire this in. My question is can this be wired straight to the CU, there is a spare 32 amp fuse, or does it require anything else, like my ev charger does? The pic shows no 8 fuse which used to be for an electric shower is free, the grey box to the right contains a fuse for the ev charger.. thanks

No, the inverter shut down spec exceeds the shut down spec of the RCDs, so it would actually be dangerous to do that. Your bard may already be setup for 'high integrity' or being MK I think you can buy a conversion kit to achieve that. If your EV charge board has a spare way, that may be a better option.

Thanks Binky, I will leave it to the sparky, just thought I could purchase any hardware that was required.
