An Embedded Generation Connection application is required to install a new inverter system, change or relocate existing inverters, or add another generation source such as batteries.

This application is for inverter systems with a connection limit up to 30kVA depending on the connection type:

  • up to 5kVA standard single-phase connection
  • up to 15kVA standard three-phase connection
  • up to 30kVA LV connection

For larger systems please refer to the connect my solar or battery page.

Who can apply?

Homeowners are responsible for the connection of their inverter system to the Western Power network. However, you may authorise your solar system supplier to apply on your behalf - check with them to confirm what actions you need to take.

Permission from your strata company (if applicable)

If you have shared connection, as is common for strata developments, shopping centres and commercial tenancies you’ll need to consult with your management body before applying.

We have upgraded the embedded generation application!

You can now access our new application below. Please update your favourites if you had book marked the previous form.
