What is Maximum Import Capacity (MIC)?

Maximum Import Capacity (MIC) is the maximum electricity demand level that can be catered for by your connection to our network. MIC is stated in kilovolt-amps, but this value is, in most cases, similar to the number of kilowatts that may be catered for by the connection.

We offer connections that provide for many different levels of electricity usage. When applying for a new connection, you need to specify the maximum electricity demand level you require and this level is then written into the Connection Agreement as the MIC.
