Operational review of Part 6
About this consultation
Part 6 of the Code deals with the connection of distributed generation (DG) to distribution networks. The matters covered in Part 6 were previously set out in the Electricity Governance (Connection of Distributed Generation) Regulations 2007.
The consultation paper has three main elements:
- A consultation on proposed changes to Part 6, with associated changes to Parts 1 and 17. The key proposal within this section proposes that a simpler notification process be created for connection of DG that meets certain criteria.
- A discussion on issues relating to the connection of DG.
- A response to submissions received during the pre-consultation on connection of DG.
