Where a DNO/IDNO can’t provide the full capacity requested without reinforcement, it may issue an offer for a Curtailable Connection. Curtailment means:
- Any action taken by the DNO/IDNO to restrict the conditions of a connection in response to a constraint on the Distribution System.
- It excludes (i) Interruptions from faults/damage to the Distribution System and (ii) Transmission network constraints.
A Curtailable Connection will include a Curtailment Limit, which will be set within the offer and, if exceeded, then payment will be due to the customer.
