Generation Infrastructure Schemes

A customer may apply to WPD for an offer for the infrastructure required to provide export capacity for a number of pre-defined premises within a development area. The customer, or a separately nominated party, may then submit a subsequent application with reference to the infrastructure offer agreement to connect premises using the infrastructure provided.

The subsequent application wishing to utilise capacity previously reserved must have written authority from the customer holding the infrastructure offer agreement. Any export capacity required in excess of that designated under the infrastructure offer agreement will be subject to a separate application.

  • The criteria for schemes to qualify for these offers are set out below:

    • Each premises to be connected to the infrastructure must be identified in the initial application, including all minimum information required as with a separate individual DG connection application
    • The export and import capacities of each DG connection should be provided as part of the minimum information
    • The development boundary for each of the pre-defined premises should be provided on an appropriate plan together with letter(s) of authority from the relevant land owner(s).
  • If you have a development which you would like to progress through this infrastructure scheme process you can submit an application using our standard application methods clearly marking as a request for an infrastructure scheme.
