Flexible Power will procure flexibility from half hourly metered businesses and aggregators who can reduce their electrical consumption or increase their on-site generation in response to a signal. Customers should be able to respond within 15 minutes of receiving the signal and hold the response for at least two hours.
As part of the Constraint Managed Zone services, we can only accept customers fed from the relevant electrical infrastructure and geographical zones . Please use our post code checker to assess your site. The Flexible Power zones are also highlighted in the map below.
Please remember to use the site postcode rather than the postcode of any control rooms.
We have taken 13 new zones forward following the intial procurement round. If you are interested in participating please contact WPDflexiblepower@westernpower.co.uk
