Remote communities often run off isolated power stations and domestic PV solar systems can have a significant impact on their stability. For this reason they are treated separately.
Unlike new rooftop PV connections in Darwin or Alice Springs, pre-approval is required for new connections in remote communities. Before you proceed with your installation, you need to submit an application to determine if capacity is available in your community.
Remote rooftop PV applications
In order to get approval to install rooftop PV, your installer may help you submit the following documents:
The Remote PV Inverter Network Connection Agreement, which outlines the terms of connection for your PV system and inverter to our network.
You will also need to submit an Embedded Generation Notice. Please contact us for the latest version of this form for remote customers.
For more information on the technical requirements to connect a PV inverter system to the supply system, refer to the Technical Requirements for Grid Connection of Photovoltaic Systems via Inverters.
Applications may be submitted to:
