Timed/Profiled connections

To enable more generation to be connected to our network we are trialling timed-profiled connection offers for DG connections >1MW.


A connection that we are able to control on a timed basis to restrict import, export or both at certain times of the day based upon availability of network or known network constraints.


A connection (offer) that is based upon agreed profiles of import, export or both. Customers set out their operating profile at application stage, we design an appropriate connection and provide a price based upon the requested profile. The profile must be returned to us within 5 working days and will be reflected in the Connection Agreement
