How to install Distributed Generation

To install small scale Distributed Generation equipment rated under 3.68kW at your home or business, you will need to contact a certified installer to carry out the work. Your installer will check if your existing electricity supply is adequate for the additional load by completing an Adequacy of Supply (AoS) check. If the electricity supply is suitable, your installer can connect the equipment and notify us afterwards. If it's not suitable, you or your installer will need to apply to upgrade your electricity supply.

The installation of generation equipment rated below 3.68kW is governed by the Engineering Recommendation (EREC) G98.  This document and our notification forms can be found in the notification forms section below.  

Once you have completed the required form you will need to send it back to us at g98notifications@ukpowernetworks.co.uk.
