G83/G98 Single premises connection procedure

Does my installation apply?

This connection procedure only applies to generation installations that meet all of the following criteria:

  • The generation at the premises must have an aggregate rating of 16A (3.68kW) per phase or less
  • The generation must  comply with requirements of an Energy Networks Association (ENA) document called Engineering Recommendation G83/2. A copy of this document can be obtained from the Energy Networks Association
  • The installer must not have commissioned any other generation within the local geographic region* within the last 28 days or plan to install more generation within this region in the next 28 days.

    *The local geographic region is deemed to be an area extending for a distance of 500m from the proposed installation.

What to do

You may install and commission the generation before providing information about the generation to us. Once the generation is commissioned you must fill in and return a G83/2 Commissioning Confirmation Form along with an Operation Diagram within 28 days. Copies of the Commissioning Confirmation Form is available from the following link:
