  • Competition in Connections – Part Funded Reinforcement (PFR) Trial

    A report setting out details of the proposed trial to allow Independent Connection Providers (ICPs) to deliver the reinforcement element of a project was submitted to Ofgem in early January 2018. Ofgem have now completed the review of our proposal and have made the decision to grant consent to our derogation from Section 6.15 of our Connection Charging Methodology Statement (CCMS), which excludes ICPs from carrying out non-contestable reinforcement. This allows SHEPD/SEPD to offer Part Funded Reinforcement to ICPs on a 3 year trial subject to project and participant criteria being met. 

    The official start date for the trial is 30th March 2018 and will end on 30th March 2021.

    For details on the PFR trial and how ICPs can participate, please, refer to our Competition in Connections web page.
