Power Distribution Agreement

If the new connections and network are to be taken over by an IDNO, the link with our distribution network will be covered by a bilateral liaison agreement detailing areas such as the characteristics and areas responsible for the link. The framework agreement is cross-cutting. However, we need to set up a specific timetable for each scheme or project. The advantage of this approach is that it requires much less red tape for each system than the previous tripartite agreement. A liaison agreement is an agreement between the owner/occupier and WPD. This agreement sets out the conditions necessary for the customer to be linked to the distribution system. As a general rule, no connection agreement is required for national premises. However, we can sometimes use a connection agreement when there is a planned facility that can disrupt the network, for example. B when installing engines or welders. The Distribution Connection and Use of System Agreement (DCUSA) provides a single centralized document on the connection and use of electricity distribution networks. It contains the pricing methods for connecting and using electricity distribution networks.

We may provide test equipment to ICP companies that have entered into the renewal of the Rent a Test Probe competition agreement on the basis of a request. The rental of this aircraft is subject to the terms of the EoC Test Prod Hire contract. Once a connection offer has been accepted, we may have to enter into a permanent agreement setting the terms of the connection. These may be connection agreements for individual premises or bilateral liaison agreements for on-board networks owned by an independent network manager (IDNO). As part of self-connection processes, PKIps may sometimes request access to WPD substations during their work. This agreement allows ICP to lease innuendo keys from WPD. A copy of the EoC for Issue and Return of Keys for WPD Substation is available here. There may be a number of triggers for a connection agreement that is usually applied when the connection exists: a site-specific schedule is subject to general agreement and is set up for each scheme or project and requires much less paperwork than the previous tripartite agreement. The connection agreement contains information such as: We have developed a bilateral agreement combining both network access for live communication and HV operation with the network acceptance agreement. The FNAA agreement allows an ICP/IDNO to sign a comprehensive asset buyback and live implementation agreement in the four WPD areas. Thanks to the delivery contract you enter with your selected supplier, you automatically enter the national terms of use. In many cases, we also need a site-specific connection agreement.

To conclude this agreement with us, or if you have any questions, please contact the liaison team under wpdconnectionpolmids@westernpower.co.uk The following criteria, when a connection point can be identified through the Standard Design Matrix using the common model: In some cases, ICPs and IDNo may approve their own design, subject to the qualifying criteria for achieving self-assessment. The following table shows the market segments in which the ICP/IDNO can approve its own designs: There is an audit process to ensure that the designs are compatible with WPD guidelines and standard techniques. We do inspections on ICP`s for their design work and physical installation of assets supported by WPD. Once inspections are completed, PKI will follow the different levels of inspection, reducing the percentage of inspections required. Once they have reached Level 3 in all areas, where 5% of systems are controlled, PKIises can apply to a level of self-inspection.
