4.11 Conditional interactivity applies

If you have received a Quote where conditional interactivity applies then UK Power Networks has received other applications for connection to the same part of UK Power Networks’ distribution system and there is insufficient capacity or other constraints upon us that will prevent all the connection(s) (the “Prior Application(s)”) and your connection from being made. Therefore, we will apply our interactivity process. UK Power Networks prioritises applications for connections according to their application date. 

In accordance with UK Power Networks’ interactivity process the acceptance process for Quotes with conditional interactivity is in two Stages: 

  • If you wish to accept a Quote with conditional interactivity , initially you will only need to return the signed Acceptance Form within the stated validity period (Stage 1).  If we validate your acceptance (i.e. you have been successful), then you will need to make the payment so that it is received in cleared funds within 10 Working Days (Stage 2) of the date that UK Power Networks notifies you that you have been successful We will confirm which applicant(s) is successful as soon as practicable.
  • Where a Quote with conditional interactivity was accepted to Stage 1 within its validity period but subsequently was not successful, we will inform you that you have been unsuccessful. The original Application Date may be retained for any future Interactivity if you reapply within 10 Working Days of the date that we notify you that you have been unsuccessful so long as there are no changes from your original application.

Please note that the deadlines for Stage 1 acceptance and Stage 2 acceptance will be strictly enforced and it is incumbent on you to make all the necessary arrangements in good time to ensure that you are able to comply with the deadlines. 

Irrespective of whether or not you accept this Quote before 5pm on the final date for acceptance of this Quote as stated in this letter, if:

  • one or more of the Quote(s) issued by UK Power Networks pursuant to the Prior Application(s) is/are accepted in accordance with the terms of such Quote(s); and
  • due to insufficient capacity upon UK Power Networks’ distribution system or other constraints it is not possible for UK Power Networks to provide all the connections for which valid acceptances have been received,

such valid acceptance(s) received in connection with the Prior Applications will take priority over your acceptance and your acceptance will be deemed to be invalid. If this happens, I will contact you so that we can discuss alternative connection solutions
