National Connection Guidelines

Energy Networks Australia has launched the first of a set of guidelines for safe, consistent and efficient connection of solar, storage and battery devices to the grid.

The guidelines are the first nationally consistent approach for installation of distributed energy resources (DER). They address low voltage connections applicable to household, commercial and industrial premises.
