The stage 1 application process is for single G98/NI installations. The vast majority of microgeneration is installed at single sites and the installer should complete a G98/NI stage 1 commissioning pack.
The Stage 2 application process covers the connection of multiple micro-generators at domestic or business premises (other than within a single Customer’s Installation) in a ‘Close Geographic Region’, within a 28 day period. In the case of projects where the proposal is to install multiple micro-generators in a number of Customers Installations in a ‘Close Geographic Region' within a 28 day period, the Installer shall discuss the installation project with NIE Networks at the earliest opportunity. NIE Networks will need to assess the impact that these connections may have on the network and specify conditions for connection.
