The grid connection process

The grid owners are obligated by law to offer all customers a grid connection. When a customer contacts a grid owner with the intention of connecting or increasing their consumption or production, the grid owner must assess the grid capacity. If the customer cannot be connected to the existing grid, it may require  grid investments. The customer must cover a proportional share of the costs entailed.
