Independent connection provider


Independent Connection Provider

As a National Electricity Registration Scheme (NERS) accredited Independent Connection Provider (ICP) in 2022, Versatile Utilities can compete with Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) to complete your electricity connection requirements.

Customers now have the option of having the majority of connection work, referred to as contestable work, performed by a third-party connection provider, thanks to the introduction of competition in connections.

Non-contestable work, on the other hand, can only be done by the Distribution Network Operator (DNO)

An accredited ICP such as Versatile Utilities can construct electrical networks to the standards that are required by a Distribution Network Operator (DNO).

To carry out work on the electricity network on behalf of their clients an Independent Connection Provider (ICP) must be registered with Lloyds' Register's National Electricity Registration Scheme (NERS) in order to do part of the connection works.

Working with an ICP such as Versatile Utilities over Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) offers many advantages including:

Fast Quotations

To, provide you a no-obligation, fixed-price estimate for your connection work, all Versatile Utilities need is an approved construction drawing from the DNO.

Dedicated Project Manager

It is critical to have a specialist project manager to assist you in meeting your deadlines. Our project managers have prior expertise in working with other teams and will coordinate our site work with the other teams on-site to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Energisation Date

As early as feasible during the project, Versatile Utilities will supply you with a confirmed initial energization date. In order to meet your project deadlines, we collaborate closely with the DNO. 

From the initial inquiry to the design, installation, and final acceptance of the network, Versatile Utilities provides a complete solution for new electrical connections.

All of our work is done in line with the standards laid out by the distribution company that will eventually adopt and maintain the connection, ensuring a safe and reliable supply for our clients.

We also provide a full multi-utility option of Water, Gas, and Electric.
