Stage

Title Stage
Type integer
Description Stage refers to Staged Transmission Entry Capacity (TEC) – how much TEC the Customer will connect and when. The customer may choose to bring on capacity in chunks to align with their build /commissioning program. Staged contracts are also used when a customer may only be able to bring on a proportion of their total capacity at a particular point in time ahead of further reinforcement works being carried out, completion of which would allow the remaining TEC onto the system.
Comment Field is only completed if the project is staged otherwise it will be empty.
