Loss of Mains (DC0079) Registration
We are now well through the process of implementation for Window 1 in the DC0079 (ALoMCP) process. Calls for registration closed on the 12th of November, and those selected from that window have now been notified.
Out of around 10,000 sites UK wide, we understand that about 1,000 applications were received. In Scotland, out of around 1,500 sites, about 500 applications were received in the SSEN area. We suspect the high uptake in the SSEN area may have something to do with our awareness raising campaign! Of the sites we have registered on behalf of owners, we see a 44% acceptance rate. For those not accepted in Window 1, they automatically go forward to Window 2, and join the next section of site applications. We are already registering further sites for Window 2, and have finalised dates for all the accepted generators in Window 1. Our plan to only cover Scotland fell by the wayside due to levels of customer demand in England and Wales.
So although we are now busy scheduling relay settings changes, keep your enquiries coming for Window 2. That closes on the 11th of February, so you have a bit of time yet, but there are still 90% of the UK’s sites to get registered!
