The funding is part of the ALoMCP (Accelerated Loss of Mains Change Programme), a scheme operated by National Grid Electricity System Operator and the GB Distribution Network Operators.
The funding can help generator owners like farmers become compliant with new mandatory Distribution Code regulations – the regulations that generator owners must abide by to connect to the electricity network.
Once the funding ends, generator owners will still need to meet the compliance requirements but will have to pay for the updates themselves.
The new regulations come into effect on 1 September 2022, by which point, all electricity generation within the scope of the programme must be compliant, or face Ofgem approved enforcement action.
The change applies to kit that was installed before February 2018, or in some cases July 2018, and which is between 11kW and 50MW in capacity.
