Generation Connection Guide

There are four separate Distributed Generation Connection Guides for installing a new generator connection at one or more premises, each with a corresponding "Summary" guide. The purpose of the summary guides is to act as a quick check, providing only the most useful information in a condense format.

Our flowchart will guide you to the most relevant Distributed Generation Connection Guide for the generator you are planning to install. Perhaps, for instance, you are looking to install solar panels onto your property to reduce your electricity bill and even — through the government’s Feed-in Tariff scheme — get paid for the electricity you generate. If your property is based in a windy location, you can also cut your electricity bills by installing wind turbines around your site. These are available in pole-mounted or rooftop designs, with both having the added benefit of storing electricity for a day when the weather is calmer.

Further information on connecting generation or energy storage can be found here.
