Usage apart from Le Camp normal consumption? I was thinking fridge, dishwasher... also uses power. 160 sounds a lot but I wonder if is "global" or if its the top for Debconf to use?
We did the calculation in one of our past meetings, but let's redo it here,
over-estimating all values:

350 persons using 100W all the time (which is quite a lot already): 35kW
Over 230 V: 35k/220: 152.2 Amperes.

The thing we don't know is whether it's 160A for the three phases, or 160A

I'm not used to energy on the old continent but most probably it's on the three.

We have now more information?
I was just checking on the wiki, and there is no info about power outlets, a quick search on the web shows that [1], [2] the outlet is a little diferent, yes I know probably for Europe there is not much problem... but anyway I think could be added to the FAQ.

The only constant is the change
