At certain Grid Supply Points (GSPs) we are trialling the
Appendix G process with the TSO. As part of this process, we provide a list (or ‘Appendix G’) of all generators
already connected or contracted to connect to a specific GSP, including size
and type. In return, the TSO provides the maximum available ‘headroom’ at GSPs.
We update Appendix G monthly so that the TSO can regularly assess the remaining
If your connection is via a GSP in the trial, we will include
a transmission access date, any identified technical requirements (i.e.
intertrip/flexible connection) and any security and liabilities you may be
liable for, in your Connection Offer.
Once you have accepted, we will submit your scheme as
part of our monthly update and share the outcome.
If the number of accepted connections
exceeds the available headroom, we will to submit a ‘Modification Application’
to the TSO to identify if any works are required. Customers who trigger this
process will be required to fund the TSO’s fee for undertaking their
If you are looking to
generate 10MW or more in SHEPD's area, 50MW or more in SEPD's area, then you will
need to apply to the TSO for a BELLA (Bilateral Embedded Licence Exemptible
Large Power Station Agreement) or a BEGA (Bilateral Embedded Generation
