Connecting to solar and renewables

Thinking about installing solar, wind, battery or another type of inverter system (also known as embedded generation) at your home or business? As your local electricity distributor, we’ll help ensure your connection happens safely.

For tips on getting started see our getting connected to solar and battery brochure.

If you’ve already chosen and installed your system and need help connecting to our network, see the table below.

Information on embedded generators

Apply for this if

You're installing a generation system, like solar panels, that will feed our electricity network through inverters (most homes and small businesses fit in this category). It also needs to:

  • Be 10kVA or less for a single phase connection, or
  • 30 kVA or less for a three phase connection
  • Connect to a low voltage (230 V single phase or 400V three phase) network

What else do I need to know?

To apply, you’ll need to:

  • Contact a registered solar panel provider to organise panel installation (or find an installer)
  • Contact your retailer to submit an application
  • Once we receive the application from your retailer we’ll make changes to your meter

For more information, see our micro-embedded generator guide, Deemed Standard Distribution Contract or contact us.

Apply for this if

You're installing a generation system 5 MW or less, that:

  • Cannot be classified as a micro-embedded generator, and
  • Connects to a low voltage (230 V single phase or 400 V three phase) or high voltage (less than 22 kV) network.

What else do I need to know?

For more information, see our Mid-scale embedded generator guide or contact us.

Apply for this if

You're installing a generation system 5 MW or larger that connects to a high voltage (less than 22 kV) or sub-transmission (less than 66 kV) network
