Applications that need a certified design

If the network needs to be augmented to meet the electricity needs of your property, there are a few extra steps before you can complete a connection application and commence work on constructing the necessary connection assets.

1. We will offer you a Design Contract . The offer includes a statement of fees as well as terms and conditions of contract.

2. You accept the Design Contract and pay the fees to Ausgrid.

3. We will send you Design Information so you can arrange an ASP3 to design the augmentation works and submit the design to us for certification.

4. We will do a desktop audit of the design to check whether it meets our standards.

5. Once we certify the design, your connection application can be completed. We will send you a connection offer, but there is an option to expedite a connection on the application form and if you have asked for expedition and indicated that the model standing offer of connection services for ASP1 connections is appropriate, the contract will commence on the date we certify the design.

6. If you choose not to expedite the connection, you have 45 business days to accept the connection offer.

7. Once the connection contract is in place, you arrange an ASP1 of your choice to build the network assets, and an ASP2 to provide metering services.

Ausgrid will inspect the work throughout the construction period to make sure it meets our standards before the power is turned on. Once successfully electrified, the connection assets constructed by the ASP1 will be owned and maintained by Ausgrid as part of our network.

Please note, when the connection contract commences, another contract called Ausgrid’s Deemed Standard Connection Contract is formed between Ausgrid and the retail customer who will use the electricity at the premises. This contract takes effect as soon as the property is connected and electricity is being used.
