Transparency in customer connections.
Over the past three years alone we have seen a four-fold increase in requests to connect, mainly from renewable sources like solar and wind.
For an engineering business traditionally used to connecting huge gas, coal, and nuclear power stations this presents challenges. The process is full of detailed specifications, detailed language, and pages and pages of rules.
We responded to feedback from our customers. They told us:
ConnectNow is our new innovative online application and project management system, streamlining the process of connection to the grid.
The portal provides transparency across the connection process, allowing customers to view milestones along the way. Customers can check their application progress or a breakdown of their finances in real-time.
It’s really worthwhile. I’d like to see this rolled out across the industry.
It’s very clear and helpful having all of this information set out in one place.
