To successfully complete your application you will need to provide name and address information in order to populate the following sections:
-Site layout map including the substation/point of supply co-ordinates. All wind turbine co-ordinates must be included if applicable
-Site location plan at the most relevant scale (1:25000 / 1:2500 / 1:500) with your site outlined in red
If the generation is to be connected to an existing supply point (e.g. domestic PV or a wind turbine in close proximity to a farm) then you must provide the Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) of the existing meter.
An MPRN is an 11 digit number beginning with 8, that can be found on your electricity bill
To help you determine which type of connection you require, we have created a decision tree. Please review it before selecting your type of generation.
For customers wishing to apply for a generation connection greater than 3.68 kW single phase or 11.04 kW three phase.
