Last month we received the below news bulletin from UK Power Networks regarding the introduction of upfront Assessment and Design Fee’s for all Point of Connection applications over 1MVA.
The introduction of these fee’s falls in line with other DNO’s who already charge up front application fee’s, with the purpose to reduce time spent on Point of Connection offers that ultimately do not progress, as well as tackling the number of applications they receive for speculative developments.
To continue to provide the best service we can, we have decided that for any applications we make for your developments that are under 10MVA we will not be passing on these charges to you as customers. This means no delays making the applications to UKPN and ultimately saving you time and money.
Any applications over 10MVA will be dealt with on a project-by-project basis and your UKPS representative will contact you to discuss what this means for your quote.
