Webinar slides are available here

Distribution Network Operator webinar FAQs from 27 May are available here

Salix has begun a series of webinars designed to guide you through your project work with your local Distribution Network Operator (DNO).

There will be three events and the first one is by invitation only to PSDS Phase 3a clients. The webinars will be held on Friday 27 May at 11am-12noon, Thursday 14 July at 2pm-3pm and Tuesday 20 September 2-3pm and will cover the same material. Each event will feature guest speakers from DNOs as well as Salix team members.

At Salix we’re keen that all our PSDS Phase 3a clients understand the role of the DNO and we want to ensure you know how to approach one which is why our Friday May 27 11am event is designed for Phase 3a clients. Although Phase 3a clients are also welcome to join the subsequent events.

The Salix webinar will discuss what the DNO will need from you for your PSDS project, how you can submit a request to the DNO and how the process works from start to finish.

If you have any questions regarding your PSDS project please contact your Salix relationship manager.
