G59 Generator Connections

In general, for generators in excess of 16A per phase (3.66kW), the connection must comply with Engineering Recommendation G59/2, published by the Electricity Networks Association.

The G59/2 guides can be found by clicking the links below:

Customers, developers or installers who wish to connect generators within this category must provide G83/2-1 Appendix 2  and send to us at the appropriate address, as detailed on our contact us page.

We will consider the application and advise whether a connection to G83/2-1 is acceptable and detail any work, costs and the associated timescale. We may charge for evaluating this connection.

For all other connections that fall under the requirements of G59/2, the following common application form has been developed.

In response to customer feedback we have developed a new application for customers up to 100kW. 

Please print and complete the form and email, along with the relevant enclosures as previously specified, to gettingconnected@scottishpower.com

All customers connected to our network must have an agreement to remain connected. A general set of terms is available to download from the National Terms of Connection website.

For certain generation connections, particularly those which need to comply with ER G59/2, we may require additional site specific requirements to be reflected in the connection agreement.
