Alternative Connection Offers at Transmission Level

ProductVoltageDefinition
Restricted Available Access (RAA)TWhen the transmission network is intact, the network conditions may be such that the network becomes overloaded, requiring generation to be disconnected. Available on an interim basis only for developments with planning permission
Non-FirmTFor an intact transmission network, no overloading may occur and thus the generation will not be disconnected. Following a single transmission circuit outage (planned or unplanned), the generation will be disconnected if overloading of the transmission network results. This will be dependent upon the particular network conditions (typically maximum generation and minimum load).
