RAO UES Presents Draft Connection Documents for Public Discussion
Moscow, 18 April 2008. The Management Board of OAO RAO "UES of Russia"
approved drafts of standard form of connection agreements and the "Standard for
information disclosure on requests from power consumers and other owners of power grid
facilities for connection to the power grids, the results of their review, and the timing
for connection measures".
RAO "UES of Russia" has produced these documents in order to increase
transparency of the connection process and safeguard the customers' interests.
The Standard imposes uniform requirements on grid companies in respect of disclosure
and availability of complete information on connection of natural persons and corporate
entities to power grids, including:
information on requests for connection of energy consuming devices to the power grids
received by grid companies;
information on the results of review of such requests;
information on the implementation of measures relating to connection of energy consuming
devices to power grids;
other information that natural persons and corporate entities may need to take a
decision about technological connection of energy consuming devices to the power grids.
Standard agreements will govern the relationships between grid companies and various
groups of consumers in the connection process.
We invite you to participate in the discussion of these documents. Your suggestions
will be considered in the course of preparation of the final draft of standard agreements
and the Standard which will be submitted to the RAO UES Management Board on 12 May 2008
and will then be implemented at all RAO UES grid companies.
