If your application is for an embedded generation system that meets the following criteria, then in most instances, it will not require a technical review by Western Power before it can be approved: 

  • the system is a solar photovoltaic (PV) system
  • the PV system is on the published Clean Energy Council approved product list
  • the total capacity of the inverters at the site is less than (or equal to) 5 kVA
  • the property where the system is to be installed is in the Perth metropolitan area (including Fremantle and Mandurah) or in the township of Albany, Bunbury, Geraldton or Kalgoorlie.
  • supply to property after installation of system is within Western Power standard supply.

If your proposed embedded generation system does not meet the above criteria, then further checks are required and the application may require a technical review before being approved.

To select an embedded generation system suitable for your individual point of supply please see our Basic Embedded Generation Connection Technical Requirements and Distribution Customer Connections Requirements.

During a technical review we will determine whether the proposed inverter embedded generation system meets technical requirements for connection. If it does not, we will provide information on alternative options for you to consider. These options will help you decide whether to alter your proposed system to suit your point of supply, or to modify your point of supply so that the proposed system can be connected.
