Connecting embedded generation

An embedded generator is any equipment on your premises that can supply electricity. Embedded generators cover:

  • renewable systems (solar panels, wind turbines, hydro-generation)
  • battery storage systems
  • combustion machines (diesel generator)
  • cogeneration and trigeneration.

You need to apply if you want to install embedded generation, even if you are installing a standby generator and don’t intend to export electricity back to the network.
