There are two basic costs for using our networks:
1. One-off connection costs when you join our network
2. Ongoing distribution use of system charges.
These costs cover the building and maintenance of the electricity distribution system which takes power from the high voltage transmission system to the lower voltage distribution system, including assets such as overhead and underground power lines and substations
Vattenfall Networks will offer all our customers competitive electricity connection and distribution prices. In the Britain market, electricity customers have a choice of turning to their incumbent regional distribution monopoly or to a licensed independent electricity distribution network operator
Vattenfall Networks wants your business so we will always try to beat the prices and charges of your incumbent distribution network operator. For household customers, we guarantee our distribution charges will always be no more than for your regional electricity distributor
Our costs and charges are calculated following the electricity industry’s standard set of rules. Contact us for more information of charging methodology.
Electricity connection costs are based on the size of your connection. Connection costs reflect the fair and efficient costs of work we have to do to welcome you onto our network. Your connection cost may vary according to your circumstances.
There may also be other occasional charges arising from our network. These charges are mostly standardised and are only likely to be triggered if you ask us to change something on the network
More information about connection cost will be available soon!
