Owners of equipment capable of exporting electricity to the grid are required to ensure that their grid protection equipment is compliant with current regulations. In the past, that’s meant the G59 standard which has recently been superseded by G99.
The Accelerated Loss of Mains Change programme requires that G59-compliant equipment is updated to meet the newer G99 standard by September 2022. In many cases, this will be as simple as updating settings on existing equipment.
Limited funding is available to support the process of changing asset settings and you can register your interest here.
What you should do
This depends on many different things but if you have a maintenance contract for your Combined Heat and Power, solar, wind turbine etc. the necessary works may well be covered by that contract. Failing that, your installer or a suitably qualified electrician will be able to help.
If you’re interested in applying for funding or would like more information, please feel free to give us a call on 024 7669 8899.
