More local businesses in the market today are choosing to generate their own power from renewable sources. These local generators may want to connect to the network for back-up power or to sell their excess electricity to the grid.

New rules have been made by the AEMC to give embedded generators new connection choices to suit their business.

The New South Wales Department of Industry, Resources and Energy Division held a connections workshop on 15 September providing an opportunity for local generators, network companies and government to exchange detailed information on the new connection processes.

The AEMC presented to the workshop.

Papers prepared by the AEMC for the workshop are available here.

The information pack covers the different options available to business and residential consumers when seeking to connect a generator to a distribution network.

It also provides a step by step guide to each of the processes available.
