If you did not submit an existing GMPRN in Step 2 above, a GMPRN Connection Agreement will be sent to you upon receipt of your application. This must be signed and returned before your application can be processed any further.
The GMPRN Connection Agreement outlines specific responsibilities in relation to unmetered connections, as per the rules of the unmetered electricity supply market. It also provides details of the GMPRN that has been created for all the public lighting connections within the relevant development.
Applications in the name of a Local Authority
Applications in the name of Local Authorities must reference the existing Group Meter Point Reference Number (GMPRN) under which the new connections are to be grouped.
Applications in the name of a Builder/Developer
If a Builder/Developer applies for an unmetered public lighting connection in his/her own name they will be given a new GMPRN. He/she will also be required to complete and return a GMPRN Connection Agreement before a quotation can be issued.
If a Local Authority subsequently wishes to take on responsibility for this public lighting, they must first contact their electricity supplier and advise them of the GMPRN number. The Local Authority must then complete a GMPRN Connection Agreement in order to complete the transfer.
