Performance standards and charges
View the Common Connection Charging Methodology documents:
The Electricity Connection Charges Regulation (ECCR) ensures that customers pay a fair price for a connection. Based on this premise, a second connection customer (i.e. a second comer) who benefits from infrastructure that was paid for by an earlier customer, should reimburse the earlier customer for their proportion of the infrastructure.
We have compiled loading and maximum demand data for individual feeders and substations. This data has been prepared for both of Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks regions and will give you information about the local network to allow the analysis required to ensure a safe and secure supply when self identifying POCs

Delays on network connections projects can cost our customer's money as well as time. We aim to make sure we deliver what you need, when you need it.
When we receive an application for a new connection, we carry out network studies to ensure we deliver the connection you require in a safe, reliable and efficient manner.
The time we need to study, design and provide a quotation varies depending on the size and complexity of the requirement. We do everything we can to issue quotations as quickly as we can because we understand how important it is that connections work is completed on time.
There are some industry safeguards in place. All network operators have to achieve Ofgem's standards of performance for network connection services and meet strict deadlines. Ofgem recognise that not all jobs are equal, so the deadlines vary from five working days to 65 working days. If a network operator fails to meet a deadline, they have to pay compensation.
