Connecting your generation

If you’re installing your own solar, wind or liquid fuel power generator and you want to connect to our network for reliability or to feed excess supply back into the grid, you need to let us know so that we can ensure it’s safely connected to our network.

For a full guide to our distributed generation process, read our distributed generation policyOr, see below for an overview.
