The key changes in the legislation relating to the technological connection procedure affected the following issues:

  • In October 2012 the Rules of Technological Connection to Power Receiving Devices of Electricity Consumers, Energy Generating Facilities and Electric Grid Facilities Owned by Grid Organizations and Other Entities to Electric Grids approved by Resolution No.861 of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 27, 2004 were amended by Resolution No.1015 of the Government of the Russian Federation. In accordance with these changes the maximum capacity range for applicants who are willing to use an interest-free installment payment plan was increased from 100 kW to 150 kW, in particular:
"For applicants whose power receiving devices have maximum capacity from 15 to 150 kW inclusive (taking into account power receiving devices earlier connected to this connection point), the agreement (at request of such applicants) provides for an interest-free installment payment plan for 95 percent of the technological connection fee on the condition of making equal quarterly installments of the total amount for a period of three years of the date of signing by the parties the technological connection act".

  • In November 2012 the Rules of Technological Connection to Power Receiving Devices of Electricity Consumers, Energy Generating Facilities and Electric Grid Facilities Owned by Grid Organizations and Other Entities to Electric Grids approved by Resolution No.861 of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 27, 2004 were amended by Resolution No.1209 of the Government of the Russian Federation approving:
    • the standard form of an agreement for technological connection to electric grids by redistribution of maximum capacity;
    • the standard form of technical conditions for connection to electric grids by redistribution of maximum capacity.
  • In December 2012 the Rules of Technological Connection to Power Receiving Devices of Electricity Consumers, Energy Generating Facilities and Electric Grid Facilities Owned by Grid Organizations and Other Entities to Electric Grids approved by Resolution No.861 of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 27, 2004 were amended by Resolution No.1354 of the Government of the Russian Federation modifying the procedure for obtaining a permission from the federal energy supervision authority for admission to operation of connected objects and examination of connected power receiving devices of applicants of maximum capacity of up to 15 kW (inclusive) and up to 150 kW (inclusive).

For applicants performing technological connection of power receiving devices with capacity from 150 kW to 670 kW and connected to electric grids of the voltage class of up to 10 kV inclusive, a notification procedure for approval of admission to operation of connected objects by the federal energy supervision authority is applied.

  • By Decree No.209-e/1 of the Federal Tariff Service of September 11, 2012 a new revision of the Methodical Guidelines on Determination of the Amount of Payment for Technological Connection to Electric Grids was approved (registered in the Ministry of Justice of Russia on November 28, 2012, registration number No.25948) instead of the Methodical Guidelines approved by Decree No.365-e/5 of the Federal Tariff Service of December 30, 2010.
    In particular, the following amendments were made:
  • the List of Measures for Construction of Electric Grid Facilities from Existing Electric Grid Facilities to Connected Power Receiving Devices ("last mile"), the cost of which is included in the fee for technological connection to a specific consumer based on the technical conditions of connection issued to such consumer, was significantly shortened. This List includes only construction of overhead and/or cable lines, transformer substations (if voltage transformation is required for connection of this consumer), construction of main substations and substations of the voltage class of 35kV and above. Measures for organization of automated electricity metering, organization of telemechanics (telecontrol, telemetering), relay protection devices and emergency control automatics, connection organization, capacitance current compensation were excluded due to the fact that they are mainly related with the assurance of reliable, uninterrupted electricity supply to all consumers connected to the grid, which is one of the primary tasks of a grid organization;
  • in calculating a fee for a particular applicant expenses are accounted only for those "last mile" activities which are envisaged by the technical conditions provided by the grid organization, unlike the previously effective procedure where a fee for technological connection was calculated using a single rate (rubles/kW), which comprises expenses on a power unit on all "last mile" activities, including those not carried out for this particular applicant;
  • income tax is excluded from the list of expenses included in a fee for technological connection to electric grids. Taxation will be determined for a grid organization taking into account the electricity transmission service rendered;
  • mandatory approval by the regulator for the regulating period for each grid organization of standardized tariff rates and rates per maximum connected capacity unit (rubles/kW) is provided. The consumer is granted the right to choose a fee calculation method (using one of the rate types);
  • the procedure for calculation of rates per maximum connected capacity unit (rubles/kW) for a regulating period is determined based on an average weighted volume of maximum capacity connected by the grid organization during the three preceding years and the average for three years actual length of constructed cable and overhead lines and approved standardized tariff rates.

In 2010 a technological connection software product TC AMS (Technological Connection Automated Management System) was put into commercial operation. This program enabled to automate the process of registration of all applications submitted and agreements made, fulfilled and terminated. All complaints received are also registered using this program.

Moreover, a support mechanism for technological connection agreements from the conclusion to the fulfillment is realized in TC AMS, including purchasing activities, conclusion and fulfillment of contracting agreements and capital investment accounting.

From July 1, 2012 an option to submit a preliminary application through the website of JSC IDGC of the North-West was provided.

Heads of regional electric grids in all branches undergo qualification upgrade training on technological connection on a regular basis. Such training enables, on the one hand, to upgrade qualification of employees engaged in the technological connection process and, on the other hand (which is not less important), to provide the so-called feedback with field specialists.

In certain branches, with the predominating number of consumers up to 15 kW, mobile crews for performance of such connections using own resources are created, which allows for reduction of the cost and time of such works.

Due to the changes in the effective laws regulating technological connection, standard forms of agreements (including annexes) used by the Company were updated (Order No.554 of JSC IDGC of the North-West of October 15, 2012).

Furthermore, in order to optimize and unify documents executed in the course of performing operations of technological connection to the grids of JSC FGC UES, standard forms of technological connection agreements were approved (Order No.466 of JSC IDGC of the North-West of September 6, 2012).

A working group for optimization of technological connection activities was created. Based on the decisions made by this group, the logistics and material and technical support unit implemented the decision on the transfer of the right to carry out purchasing activities within the framework of works for implementation of technological connection agreements for the "privileged" group of consumers (connecting the capacity of up to 15 kW and the agreement cost of 550 rubles) in branches, without referring the same for review to the executive apparatus. This decision was made to speed up purchasing activities and, hence, to meet deadlines specified in the agreement (Order No.545 of JSC IDGC of the North-West of October 11, 2012).

In 2012 the regulation on remuneration of employees of JSC IDGC of the North-West for technological connection activities using own resources was developed and implemented (Order No.697 of JSC IDGC of the North-West of December 27, 2012).

In 2012 the effective technological connection agreements under which applicants failed to fulfill their obligations were updated or closed. Based on the results of such activities 4,542 acts on completion of technological connections, 1,693 supplementary agreements on extension of the period for technological connection activities and 647 termination agreements were signed. In 2013 these activities will continue and in order to control the performance of agreements for technological connection to electric grids of JSC IDGC of the North-West, the Company approved the Order on Organization of Activities for Fulfillment and Closing of Agreements for Technological Connection of Power Receiving Devices of Applicants of the Capacity of up to 670 kW (inclusive) to Electric Grids of JSC IDGC of the North-West.

JSC IDGC of the North-West has just developed and approved a new revision of the Regulation on the Procedure for Drafting and Approving Technological Connection Agreements Made in the Executive Apparatus of JSC IDGC of the North-West. In the nearest future this regulation will be approved and brought into force by an order of JSC IDGC of the North-West.

In addition, in order to bring the forms of documents approved by Order No.554 of JSC IDGC of the North-West of October 15, 2012 into compliance with the amendments made to the Rules of Technological Connection to Power Receiving Devices of Electricity Consumers, Energy Generating Facilities and Electric Grid Facilities Owned by Grid Organizations and Other Entities to Electric Grids approved by Resolution No.861 of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 27, 2004 and to Decree No.209-e/1 of the Federal Tariff Service of September 11, 2012 on Approval of Methodical Guidelines on Determination of the Amount of a Fee for Technological Connection to Electric Grids, JSC IDGC of the North-West amended standard forms of documents. In the nearest future these forms will be approved and brought into force by an order of JSC IDGC of the North-West.

In performing technological connection operations JSC IDGC of the North-West faces the following problems:

  • Non-readiness of a part of applicants to perform technological connection of their energy installations to electric grids of the grid organization upon expiration of the agreement. Due to the above, there is no possibility to perform technological connection of the applicant's energy installations to electric grids of the grid organization within the period set forth by law and to terminate the technological connection agreement with this applicant. At the same time, JSC IDGC of the North-West has no possibility to submit to the authorized executive body governing tariff regulation its capital costs on connection of the above applicants for the purpose of compensation of income loss.
  • Absence of a two-rate tariff (for consumed and reserved capacity volume) for applicants of up to 15 kW. Due to the above, the grid company is obliged to perform technological connection operations for every applicant submitted a request while the applicant is not obliged to consume. At the moment, the effective laws of the RF provide only for compensation of expenses incurred for technological connection but do not provide for compensation of costs relating to maintaining the grids in the case there is no consumption.
  • Activities specified in individual technical conditions, or any part thereof, may be performed both by the grid company and the applicant (at the applicant's option). There should be a mechanism to regulate this process (for example, if the applicant is not a grid organization, there should be a limitation on technical characteristics). Performance by the applicant of technical arrangements from the border of its plot to the connection point increases the "patched" structure of the grids, which has a negative effect on management of the grid complex in general.
  • At the moment, information on the possibility of technological connection to electric grids is not required for the performance of works relating to allocation of a land plot. Due to the above, the administrations do not always notify grid companies on their plans for land allocation, future construction and results of tenders for selection of a potential investor. Hence, the grid company has no possibility for timely receipt of information on the region development plans and schedules.
  • Applicants' abuse of the right for "privileged" technological connection, disaggregation of land plots and submission of several applications for technological connection for the purpose of implementation of large projects.
  • Time-consuming process for obtaining permissions and authorizations.
