The simplified procedure of connection to the electrical network

In order to simplify the procedure of connection to the electrical network, amendments have been made in the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the field of power engineering since February 1,2017.

By order of the Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan №521 from December 8, 2016 about making amendments in the order of the Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan №143 from February 25, 2015 “Approval of the rules of use of electricity” the item 22 of the rules of use of electricity, approved by the Order of the Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan from February 25, 2015 №143: “Before commissioning an electrical installation, the expert organization, conducts an energy examination of the electrical installation was excluded. It is not allowed to conduct an energy examination of an electrical installation by the expert organization that has developed the project documentation for construction, reconstruction or modernization of the electrical installation of the consumer”.

We remind you that the following amendments and additions were made in the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the field of power engineering:

  • Terms of giving the technical specifications for connection to the electrical network reduced (from 14 to 5 days for consumers with capacity of the electrical installations up to 200 kW);
  • Agreement deadline of design decisions of the consumers of energy transmission organizations reduced (from 20 to 3 days for consumers with capacity of the electrical installations up to 200 kW);
  • No need to obtain a permission to connect to the electrical networks from the agency of the state energy supervision and control;
  • Terms of signing a contract for electricity with the energy-supplying organization reduced (from 7 to 3 days);
  • Normative values ​​of reliability indices of electricity as well as the rules of their determination were approved by the order of the Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan N 214 from May 20, 2016.

How to connect to the electrical network?

In accordance with the Rules of use of electricity, approved by the Order of the Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan from February 25, 2015 № 143, after receiving an application from the consumer, the energy transmission or producing organizations will give technical specifications for connection of new or reconstructed electrical installations in the following terms:

  • power capacity up to 200 kW – during 5 working days (previously this procedure took 14 days for consumers up to 200 kW);
  • power capacity from 200 to 1000 kW – during 10 working days;
  • power capacity over 1000 kW – during 15 working days.

To supply the construction project with electricity, a consumer will get temporary technical specification for the construction period.

Payment for issuance and reregistration of technical specifications is not collected.

The design documentation for construction, reconstruction or modernization of electrical installations of the consumers is agreed upon prior to the starting of construction and assembly works with an energy transmission or producing organization, given technical specifications.

Design solutions of electrical installations are agreed for compliance with the technical specifications in the following terms:

electrical installations with capacity up to 200 kW – during 3 working days (reduced the time down to 3days);

electrical installations with capacity from 200 kW to 1000 kW – during 7 working days;

electrical installations with capacity of more than 1000 kW – during 12 working days.

It is not necessary to obtain permission for construction and installation work. Today, a designer should send an electronic notice about start of work to the department of the state architectural and construction control.

The time for conclusion of a treaty for electricity supply with the energy-supplying organization was reduced from 7 to 3 days.

For non-compliance with the approved values ​​of reliability indices of electricity supply, there is administrative responsibility for the heads of the energy transmission organizations.
