Delivering Innovative Power Generation Services since 2014
OFGEM encourages competition in areas where this can make a positive difference for customers. This should mean that customers connecting to the network get fairer prices and better service.
There are two categories of work when providing new electrical utility connections:
- Non-contestable work is work that can only be undertaken by the host Distribution Network Operator (DNO). For example the DNO is the only body permitted to determine the point of connection to the network.
- Contestable work may be undertaken by a suitably accredited Independent Connections Provider (ICP). Contestable works include the installation of cables, sub stations and other plant associated with the new connection.
