INCENTIVE ON CONNECTIONS ENGAGEMENT (ICE)
The Incentive on Connections Engagement (ICE) encourages network operators to deliver a continually high level of service to major works connections customers.
ICE gives connections customers and key stakeholders the opportunity to contribute to our annual service improvement plans.

Our work plans are developed together with connections stakeholders and all our service improvement actions are derived from our their suggestions and feedback.
We work hard to understand the needs of our connections customers and to continually improve the service we provide. We encourage you to tell us what we do well and what we could be doing better. It is only through ongoing dialogue we can ensure we are fully meeting your expectations. In the first instance, please send any comments to ICE@northernpowergrid.com.
