How much will it cost?
There is no fee for an Embedded Generation Connection Application. However, work may be required to ensure your connection meets Western Power Standards and Requirements.
We encourage you to discuss this with your solar provider and licensed electrical contractor.
How long will the process take?
Most applications are approved within an hour of submission. For applications requiring technical assessment - please allow 15 business days.
What information do I need to apply?
- Your Retailer Reference Number (RRN) displaying your control method for emergency solar management, if applicable.
- Technical details of your system, whether it be a new or upgraded inverter or adding to an existing system.
What is my connection type?
Our system will display whether the connection for your address is individual, shared or unknown. The connection type is important to us for assessing your application.
What is technical assessment?
You’ll be advised if your application is sent for technical assessment and if additional information such as site or single line diagrams are required.
How am I notified if my system is approved?
The applicant will receive a preliminary approval email from Western Power. Find out more about the conditions of approval to connect.
What can I do if my application is declined?
If your application is not approved, we’ll provide information on alternative options, whether to alter your proposed system or to modify your connection point. Once you’ve made the necessary changes you’ll need to submit a new Embedded Generation Connection Application.
