What is the G99 Fast Track Process? 

The G99 Fast Track process may allow you to connect your small generation and/or storage quicker than through a formal application.

To enter into the G99 Fast Track process for generating unit(s) located as a single generator’s installation, you must ensure it is compliant with one of the three categories of Small Generation Installations (“SGI’s”).

In every case, all generating units (including electricity storage) installed under this process, shall be connected via either EREC G99 or G98 Type Tested Inverters, or EREC G59 or G83 Type Tested Inverters where the Power Generating unit was installed prior to 27th April 2019.

Frequently asked questions

Do you know you have a choice?

If you are looking to connect a site dedicated to generation, we can provide estimates and quotations for new or existing connections. If you wish, you can seek alternative estimates or quotations from Independent Connections Providers (ICPs). When you receive a quotation for the connection, it will be split into contestable and non-contestable elements.  This is done to be as clear as possible to what element a third party can offer.  For further information on what an ICP can offer, follow the link below.
