After you have connected
If you are already connected to the system, you may want or need to modify, disconnect, or manage your connection. On this page you will find out how to modify a connection, how to disconnect, and details of the compensation process for loss of access.
Compensation for loss of transmission access
CUSC Modification Proposal 212 introduced a new process, where customers connected to the system who have lost access to the NETS can make a claim for compensation within 30 calendar days of such an incident taking place. Please refer to these documents for further guidance on the process and to submit a claim for compensation:
Modifying a connection (including disconnecting)
Reasons to modify
In some situations, generators who have an agreement with National Grid may need to modify the existing agreement. Common reasons for modifying a connection include:
change to connection point;
change in technology; and
change in technical site specifics.
TEC reductions can be done without a modification application. They are done on 1 April every year after we receive notification at least one year and five days in advance.
Altering an agreement
To alter an existing agreement, customers will need to:
Submit a modification application (Exhibit I Modification Application);
Pay the relevant application fee, calculated using the Fee Calculator tool; and
Submit the required technical data.
Disconnections don’t require the modification application process.
To understand the costs associated with modifying an application, please refer to the Application Fee Calculator document. This tool calculates the cost of an application fee, based on the location of the connection, size of connection and offer type. You can find more information about the application fee in the Use of System Charges document.
If you would like to discuss the modification application, required technical data, or disconnecting, please contact your Customer Contract Manager or a member of the Electricity Connections Team.
