The information below applies to the following types of generators and loads:
- all transmission load connections
- generator connections in excess of 1MVA.
Connecting transmission loads and large generators
During the enquiry stage, we provide guidance on your project and the information necessary to complete a connection application.
After your initial enquiry, if you want to progress with you project, you will need to complete and submit the transmission loads and generators application form.
During this stage we develop a scope of work for each option to modify the network, assess each option and select the final technical solution to be implemented.
We prepare detailed designs, estimates, business cases and contracts for the final technical solution, to enable your connection to the network.
Construction & commissioning
We construct and commission the required network assets under the terms of a standard Western Power works contract.
Once constructed and commissioned the new or modified connection assets become the property of Western Power and assets can begin operating. Access to the network utilising the new or modified network connection occurs pursuant to an Electricity Transfer Access Contract (ETAC).
