At SP Energy Networks we are introducing a new Design and Development team for each of our licence areas. Our new Design and Development Team will co-ordinate all new connections design and quote activity including design of any associated network reinforcement requirements.

Our local District Delivery Teams will continue to deliver the projects, thus ensuring on site works can be planned and constructed utilising local relationships on site. Each of our six geographical districts across the SP Distribution licence area will continue to deliver all connection projects at 33kV voltage level and below

For more contact information, view the Connections Contact page.
