How has the definition of site changed following the 2011/12 review?

The fundamental definition remains unchanged, but government says it intends to clarify that:

  • several installations e.g. wind turbines or solar panels at a single location are not treated as separate sites because they register separate MPANs;

  • separate residential units on a private wire network (i.e. park homes) are treated as separate sites; and

  • hydro installations that are physically separate are not treated as a single site because of DNO constraints that do not allow them separate connections.
