Before making a connection application take a look at our heatmap tool for information about available capacity on our network.

Our heatmap tool

At Electricity North West we are committed to improving the experience of our customers. As part of this commitment we have developed our heatmap tool. This tool enables developers to assess the level of capacity that might be available for new connections to our network.

Our heatmap tool, which takes the form of an excel workbook, contains both capacity information and embedded geographic diagrams. The tool is available for download below.

We envisage that the tool will be used to inform initial discussion between ourselves and our customers. Although we have taken steps to ensure the accuracy of the heatmap tool, it cannot replicate the level of accuracy provided by the detailed assessment carried out as part of the formal application process. As such, we advise that customers enter into dialog with us before submitting a formal application. Similarly, if the heatmap tool indicates that there is insufficient capacity to accommodate your development please contact us to discuss the next steps. We will always work with customers to find solutions to network constraints, including the deployment of smart technology.
