HOW IT WORKS

If you need an electricity connection to a new industrial or commercial site or building, or need an increased supply, Rock Power Connections will support you through the process.

 

There are two elements to the work.

 

  • Non-contestable works. These are the works required to reinforce the distribution network in order to allow your new connection or increased supply. These can only be undertaken by the DNO.

  • Contestable works. This is the new network from the Point Of Connection to your site/premise.
