Services: Network Connections

Design of connection from POC to your site

Smith Brothers is an approved Independent Connections Provider (ICP), experienced in delivering safe, hassle-free and cost-effective grid connections to electricity distribution systems.

Because we are certified on the NERS Lloyds register, you don’t have to rely on DNOs to carry out your contestable work. We can take care of everything from the initial application, design, construction and commissioning, through to the final adoption and energisation. Better still, this entire scope of services is carried out by our own, highly-skilled engineers. The result is a professional, responsive and affordable solution, with a timescale to suit your project.
