Help with the grid connection process

Tradelink Solutions can help you to make sense of Distribution Network Operator connection agreements and will negotiate the contestable items on your behalf.

Renewable generators with half-hourly metering, sites with an installed capacity of 30kW and above, will have to agree to a connection agreement with their local Distribution Network Operator (DNO).

Generators with an installed capacity of 500kW and above, or those living in some rural areas where there isn’t a history of distributed generation, may come across particular difficulties.

Dealing with DNOs can be a daunting experience, especially for those not familiar with the industry. Tradelink Solutions will take your site to the DNO and review your connection agreement and we can explain the clauses to you without the jargon.

Certain items of a connection agreement are non-contestable and the DNO is obliged to assist you should you approach them.

The DNO will also provide you with a quote for the contestable items of a connection agreement, including works like the digging of trenches and laying of cables. Tradelink Solutions can use the experience from constructing our own hydropower assets and from other generators we have assisted to negotiate these rates on your behalf and will make recommendations of firms who can undertake the work if you are not satisfied with the DNO pricing.
