Installation and connection of distributed generation

Installing distributed generation and connecting it to our network

Installing distributed generation is complex. If you intend to install distributed generation, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with Powerco's distributed generation policy, a comprehensive document which complies with the Electricity Industry Participation Code 2010, Part 6, Connection of Distriubted Generation.

Our distributed generation policy (updated March 2018) consists of:

  • An application form and information for medium to large distributed generation systems (above 10 kilowatts) 
  • An application form and information for smaller distributed generation systems (10 kilowatts or less) 
  • General information about fees, connection terms, credits, charges and relevant policies 
  • Glossary of terms.

For a paper copy of our distributed generation policy, please email us.
