If my connection is shared, who needs to know I am applying to connect solar?
Before applying to connect this type of equipment, tenants or owners with shared connections should first seek permission from their strata company or management body to use a portion of the total network capacity allocated.
Failing to do this may prevent others from connecting their equipment, or require the management body to upgrade the connection to our network to accommodate the needs of all owners and or tenants.
It's important to remember that the strata company or management body is ultimately responsible for the management of the common connection to the network and the common electrical system. Effective management of this shared resource will allow the benefits of renewable energy solutions to be shared by all.
