Connection Offer Expenses

From 1st May 2018 we will be implementing changes to the way we recover some of the costs that we incur when preparing an offer for an electricity connection. If your proposed electricity connection requires work at 22kV and above (‘EHV’ works) we will charge you for the time we spend preparing the offer for connection in accordance with the Electricity (Connection Offer Expenses) Regulations 2018.

We will require payment even if you do not accept the offer. The charge covers the costs we reasonably incur when assessing the impacts of the connection on the distribution/transmission system, designing the connection (including any reinforcement works) and preparing the offer. For further information click here.

Pre-application Discussions

If you would like to discuss your proposals or requirements ahead of making an application for connection, appointments are available with a local engineer on request. More information is available here
