Hugh was invited to contribute a feature article to Utility Week. Given the impending Connection Offer Expenses that Distribution DNOs can charge from 6 April 2018, he surveyed his contacts at the DNOs to get an idea of their charging intentions.
Press release: Farmers and landowners interested in energy generation or storage projects should act quickly to avoid potentially steep fees. From 6 April network operators in England, Wales and Scotland will be able to charge up-front fees for grid connection offers, which could run into thousands of pounds.
While opportunities for power generation and battery storage schemes exist in industrial and urban areas, the greatest potential can be found in rural areas. Find out why we are offering CLA (Country Land and Business Association) members an exclusive offer on our Stop/Go feasibility studies.
We are delighted that our CEO, Hugh Taylor, has been interviewed for The Energyst. Grid is King for any standalone or behind-the-meter, single technology or co-located schemes.
Read how we secured grid capacity for 800kW of behind-the-meter battery storage for our Yorkshire clients and the consultancy we are now providing.
We secured 8MW of viable grid capacity for a battery storage scheme connecting at 33kV and secured competitive offers from developers for our large rural estate client.
Our CEO, Hugh Taylor, is an experienced public speaker and speaks at many energy and business events. Read some of the great feedback and book him for your event. His talks always get good feedback and generate plenty of discussion after he has left the platform.
The rental income from hosting a large-scale energy scheme can be extremely beneficial for any landowner or farmer with a suitable site. Getting permission to connect to the electrical grid is the most important factor in determining the success and income from any scheme and is one which landowners must approach with caution.
