Connection standard

Ergon Energy and Energex are pleased to release the new Connection Standard for Micro Embedded Generating Units (0-<30 kVA) (PDF 540.9 kb). The revision of this standard has been a collaborative effort with the PV industry.

We encourage all PV industry members to read the Connection Standard to understand the rules, obligations and benefits.

Supporting documents

Below are the Connection Standard supporting documents and a short explanation.

Customer information sheet

The customer information sheet tells customers:

  • How to apply to connect a micro EG unit, and associated obligations
  • About the Queensland Solar Bonus Scheme, non-export systems and reactive power control
  • About the difference between kVA and kW
  • When and why an electrical installation may need to be upgraded to support a micro EG unit.

We encourage all prospective micro EG unit owners to read this document and encourage PV sales consultants to either give customers a link to the document or a hard copy.
