The over-arching requirement for all grid-connected generators is to protect the electricity network.
We can disconnect you without notice if your generator's connection is deemed likely to cause damage or pose a potential threat to the electricity network, environment or people.
You must use a properly licensed or accredited professional to design, install and maintain your generator.
Renewable energy connection generating installations must comply with all statutory requirements and standards. ActewAGL must approve the installation of the inverter and protection equipment prior to installation. All wiring must meet the requirements of the ACT Planning and Land Authority.
You will need to make provisions for metering equipment suitable for the purpose of the installation. The method of connection will depend on the metering arrangements.
Certain steps of protection are required. Testing must be completed before final approval, which needs to be provided to ActewAGL. You will then be required to install clear and indelible labelling on all relevant parts of the installation.
