If you have a G59 relay, don’t leave it too late to upgrade

16th November 2021 UPDATE - The final window for full grants for G59 works has just opened and will be closing on the 8th of February, 2022.  The funding then begins to drop until the scheme closes August 2022. If you think you have a G59 relay and haven't made the necessary changes, or arent sure then get in touch.


Who does this apply to?

Do you have a G59 relay that was installed before February 2018? If the answer is yes, then it needs to be updated to the new rules by September 2022.

Why are we telling you to sort this now? Well, this is the last chance you will get to get all costs reimbursed through the Accelerated Loss-of-Mains Change Programme (ALoMCP).

What do I need to do?

Depending on the type of generation you have, you will either need to change, or disable the loss of mains settings you have, or it may be necessary to install a new relay.

How much will it cost?

Although this is site specific, the ALoMCP is a nationally funded project that is offering grants to help pay for the work. For most sites successful in acquiring funding, generators can have the work completed free of charge.


What if I do not have the work completed?

Generators not compliant may be subject to fines or even disconnection. Once the funding is used up or when the scheme closes, you will have to pay for the work yourself, so the sooner you apply the better in the longer term.

We can help you with these changes so that you are able to apply for the funding. Call us on 024 7669 6512 to find out how we can help you.
