If you know which application form you need, use the guides below to support your application process. If you need further information about which Connection form to use visit Getting Connected.


Before you apply

Payments:

  • Applications submitted from 1 July 2019 which result in the applicant accepting a Contract for Design Related Services will require the Applicant to pay invoices in accordance with the terms of that contract. Prior to submitting your application, please ensure you understand your responsibilities as an Applicant for developments or projects where contestable and ancillary network design services may be required. 
  • Application forms require payment using a credit or debit card only (Visa and Mastercard) before being submitted to Ausgrid. Application forms can be saved and/or shared for up to 60 days, so you can check it is correctly completed and/or arrange for someone else to pay.

Check your submission:

  • Ausgrid does not have access to saved application forms prior to successful payment and submission. Please ensure your application is correct because once payment is completed it will be submitted to Ausgrid and processed, the application fees will be expended and not refundable.
  • We recommend you engage an electrical professional to assist you, or submit on your behalf, as the information required can be quite technical.

Important reminder:

All embedded generation applications MUST include details about any existing embedded generation at the premise. Ausgrid will reject any applications where this information is not included, and no refunds will apply for incorrectly completed applications.
