Designing your connection

Once we have a signed connection offer in the appropriate timescales we will progress your offer to detailed design. During this stage we will carry out site visits, engineering and environmental assessments; review the programme and define the specification of the equipment needed to deliver your connection.

The activities in this stage will be led by our Investment Engineers who may contact you to discuss your connection further and understand site access routes or connection design. The Investment Engineer will also be supported by our Consents team if there are any consenting activities being undertaken by NGET on your project. Your Account Manager will also remain a key contact to check on progress against milestones and manage any updates.

Who is involved at this stage?

During this stage of your journey, an assigned Investment Engineer will lead the activities around designing your connection with support from our Consents team. Your Account Manager will also remain a key contact to check on progress against milestones and manage any updates.

Please note: if you are undertaking a User Self Build then you will take responsibility for this step for the connection works.

Our video explains the process in more detail:



Customer checklist

  • Are you ready to provide your detailed planning data after you sign your offer?
  • Do you have any milestones that may impact your connection schedule, such as Development Consent Orders or a Financial Investment Decision confirming that your company has given us their consent to proceed?
  • Do you need a back-feed date agreed?
  • Are you ready to agree your securities and connection cost?

If you have answered no to any of these questions, please make an enquiry.
