Our initial scoping solutions give you complete assurance over the feasibility of your proposed cell site location and all the information you need to proceed with connections works.

Heat Map

Using our knowledge of the existing electricity networks we can identify areas that are likely to be able to provide a DNO connection without significant reinforcement, aiding you with the selection of a suitable location.

When you have identified your location we provide the nearest suitable connection point, including network maps, highlighting any engineering difficulties as well as expected costs and timescales.
