Allocation and reservation of capacity
Network capacity allocation and reservation webinar
We previously consulted with stakeholders on a proposed approach to the way in which we allocate and reserve network capacity to customers requiring multiple new electricity connections within a defined development area. We delayed implementation whilst we discussed a number of stakeholder queries with the proposals and will now look to implement a revised version of the process. Our aim is to provide customers who hold an offer for connection with a reasonable level of assurance that the capacity that they have requested will be available for their use during a prescribed period, whilst at the same time, protect other customers who have a more pressing need for capacity and face having to pay a higher connection charge for reinforcement works deemed necessary due to existing capacity being reserved by others.
We held a webinar on the 23rd September, setting out our revised proposals and implementation date. A recording of the webinar is available below:
