Recently the Distribution Code was amended and now requires all generation owners to comply with the Loss of Mains (LoM) protection settings as set out in the most recent version of Engineering Recommendation (EREC) G59
. If you connected to the network under EREC G59 before February 2018, the LoM protection settings on your site may need to be changed. To remain compliant with the Distribution Code, these changes need to be made by September 2022.
We're working with National Grid ESO and other UK DNO’s to help accelerate the required changes to LoM protection by offering funding to generation owners through a payment programme. Generation owners can apply online to take part in the payment programme, where funding can be made available to help meet the costs of making these changes.
