It's very simple: to obtain an electricity supply, you need a connection point between the electric grid and your supply point (home, office, etc.). These installations for the connection between the grid and the customer are called supply connections.
In some cases, if you want a new supply or to modify your current supply, some kind of action needs to be carried out in the electricity grid. i-DE helps you to manage this. All you need to do is to submit the documentation required depending on the supply characteristics. Here are the general criteria and phases of the process for connecting to the i-DE grid:
Power supply applications
A power supply application means both new supplies (new connections from a supply point to the electric grid) and modifications to an existing supply (power increase, voltage change, etc.).
These actions are included in chapter VII of RD 1048/2013 [PDF], which establishes the economic regime of power supply connections and other actions required to attend to users' power supply applications.
As a customer, when applying for a new supply or upgrading an existing one, you must pay the connection fees, which may include any of the following items:
The distribution companies are responsible for and assume the costs of the junction and connection of the new installations on the existing grid (the cost of materials, if needed, is not included and must be paid by the applicant).
Criteria for determining payments for connection fees
There are different criteria depending on where the supply point is located (developed or undeveloped land), and the technical specifications requested (power and voltage):
Technical report and quotation
If it is necessary to adapt the installations after the application is made, a report of technical conditions and a quotation will be sent (within the deadlines established in article 103 of RD 1955/2000 [PDF].
The following items are described in the technical report:
The quotation is itemised according to the items and work indicated in the technical report, and the customer has a period of six months to reply to us.
