Distribution Connection Pricing Policy
Our Distribution Connection Pricing Policy (PDF) explains the way we charge for connecting to our distribution network.
We'll calculate charges for connecting or modifying a connection to our distribution network in a way that reflects the costs and benefits of that connection, while remaining compliant. Taking into account this range of factors, our policy approach is summarised as:
- Customers requiring basic and standard customer projects are exempt from any requirement to contribute towards augmentation services
- We're transitioning to more cost-reflective charging for standard customer projects that require transformers
- We'll apply standard calculations and fixed rates where possible
- We'll offer flexible pricing terms and introduce appropriate safeguards to ensure the connection charges are paid
- Developers are eligible to refunds as part of the Developer Mains Scheme
