Government believes that allowing distribution network operators (DNOs) to charge upfront Assessment & Design (A&D) fees when processing connection requests to the electricity distribution network, will help ensure a fairer sharing of costs between customers and help improve the efficiency of the overall connection process.
We’re seeking comments on the draft Statutory Instrument (The Electricity (Connection Offer Expenses) Regulations 2017), which will enable DNOs to charge these fees.
We would like views on the proposed approach, our assessment of the economic impacts, and the draft Statutory Instrument, from those with an interest in distribution network connections, for example, generators, property and commercial developers, local authorities and development bodies, and community energy bodies.
The consultation document also responds to comments made as part of the earlier Call for Evidence on Assessment and Design Fees.
