Network capacity map

Terms and conditions

The demand availability map provides an indication of the network’s capability to connect large-scale developments to Major Substations. The main assumptions are:

  • The data is provided as an indication capability and capacity only
  • The existing minimum and maximum load and hence the constraints shown are based on existing demand commissioned on the network and do not include any outstanding and quoted demand.
  • Connections to the substations with classification limited available capacity may still be possible, however there might be a requirement for significant network reinforcement to overcome the impact on the network constraints.
