Can I take part?

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.       A full list of relevant postcodes is available here,  an interactive post code checker is  available below.
