Generator connections into the AusNet Services (AST) Distribution Network, are classified as embedded generator connection. The AST distribution network is, generally, defined as all parts of the AST network which operate at 66kV or lower.
This page sets out the process, indicative costs and time frames of embedded generator connections with generation capacity of 5 MW of greater.
Connections into the 220kV (and above) network are considered connections onto the Victorian Transmission Network. The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) manages the connection process for all Victorian Transmission connections and will be your main point of contact. For more information please visit their website.
