How to make sense of electricity connections?

Whether it’s an industrial site that needs an upgraded supply due to a recent expansion, or an ambitious plan for a renewables generation project, when you need a new industrial or commercial electricity connection it’s good to understand the basics before you dive right in. But in our busy day-to-day lives, it’s sometimes hard to know where to start and who you can rely on to deliver your industrial electricity connection project. That’s why Rock Power Connections, a leading independent connections provider (ICP), has put together a helpful guide that makes sense of the electricity connection process, in a simple and easy to understand factsheet.

The newly designed ‘New Connections’ factsheet has been designed especially for customers who are embarking on the electricity connection process for the first time. It explains the elements involved and the connection process that the team at Rock Power will guide you through to realise your project and connect you to the local electricity grid.

As an ICP, Rock Power Connections is a reliable and flexible alternative to your local electricity distribution network operator (DNO), such as Western Power Distribution or SSE. Since competition was introduced, customers have a choice of supplier to design and install their new connection. Often, customers who are new to the process are unaware of the choice on offer. At Rock Power Connections we have the expertise to lead your project and deliver an efficient solution in a friendly, flexible and professional manner. We take away the hassle and understand your concerns about costs and complexity – that’s why Rock Power Connections offers cost-effective installations and ensures a dedicated Project Manager is on hand to coordinate all aspects of the works and answer any of your questions, anytime.

Operations Director, Reece James, explains: “Whether you want to know the difference between switchgear and a transformer or understand what makes up the core costs of the quote, we are on hand to help. Our new factsheet is helpful guide to all new customers embarking on the electricity connections process. Using our years of experience, we have designed it to answer the key questions and unravel the complexity of the connections process.”

“Having a choice of an ICP or a DNO to design and install your new industrial or solar connection is a very good thing. But knowing what each steps involves and how you can secure the best engineering service for the best value is even better. We believe our ‘New Connections’ factsheet will help you do just that.”
