IPTO begins offering connection terms for group RES applications

Power grid operator IPTO has begun offering connection terms to group applicants behind small-scale solar energy projects, a development that enables direct transmission system access for these groups, sparing them of the need to enter via the distribution network.

According to sources, a first group application received connection terms from IPTO about three weeks ago, while a further two groups of small-scale PV units had secured their direct access to the transmission system by the end of last week.

More small-scale group applicants are expected to soon be given their connection terms.
