Innovative solution – making the complex simple

Power On is the UK’s leading Independent Connections Provider (ICP), delivering innovative, efficient, competitive, and compliant new electricity connections for even the most complex projects.

We can design, deliver, and adopt electricity distribution networks, arranging for their long-term ownership through our group’s regulated Independent Distribution Network Operator (IDNO) licence. This brings many additional benefits to our customers including vastly enhanced control of the connections programme and phased energisations through our ability to self-connect the assets we install to the upstream network.

We are also accredited to carry out self-determination. We can ascertain the nearest point of connection ourselves which speeds up the process considerably.

Power On provided three new substations and on-site HV/LV infrastructure to serve a new hotel, cinema and retail spaces at Catterick Princes Gate. They supported us throughout from tender to delivery and provided a professional service to ensure supplies were energised on time and achieved all the necessary approvals.
