50Hertz provides discrimination-free access to the extra high-voltage grid for all market participants. This is based on a number of laws, ordinances and guidelines that ensure the discrimination-free character of grid access.
On this part of our website, final consumers, distribution system operators and operators of producing units who want to be directly connected to our grid can find extensive information about grid access, grid use and supplier framework contracts as well as about the grid use charges.
Under ‘Grid Connection’, 50Hertz customers find regulations, procedures, ordinances, technical requirements and contracts for the grid connection for production units, distribution systems and directly connected final consumers.
Please note: the ‘Terms of Grid Connection and Grid Access’ apply both to grid connection customers, connecting their technical installations to the 50Hertz grid for the first time and to those who are modifying their already connected installations. Modifications to an installation are deemed to include any technical change such as conversion, extension, partial or full dismantling, modification of the electrical characteristics at the terminals and changes made to the grid connection capacity, the protection concept or neutral-point connection.
Here, customers who want to consume electricity from or supply electricity to the grid of 50Hertz as well as industrial customers, suppliers and final consumers can find all important details about grid access.
